Prolapse Repair and Vaginal Estrogen Cream?

I remember reading here that some of you that had your vaginal prolapse repaired, started to use vaginal estrogen cream to keep the area from reprolapsing and the tissues from thinning.

I plan on having a follow up visit with my surgeon, now that it's been over 6 months. I want him to check for mesh erosion, vaginal cuff granulation, etc.

I wanted to talk to him about vaginal estrogen. If I use the cream, will it mess with my Climara patch?

What estrogen cream is the best brand? Is there one in particular that has a good success rate?

Thank you!

It really is such a personal thing...what suits one woman does not suit another. I prefer Vagifem vaginal estradiol tablets after trying estriol cream, but we are all so different.

It might affect the level of oestrogen that you feel in your body if you are on the Climara patch. With the two forms of estrogen, I felt unpleasant symptoms of too much estrogen - but there are many sisters on here who never notice vaginal oestrogen in their system at all.

Your gyn might well have a favourite brand that he recommends.

I was told by my mother (25 year breast cancer survivor) that if you have ever had any kind of cancer you cannot take estrogen. Her Doc told her it will cause any cancer cells to grow. Has anyone ever heard of this?
