what can be used for vaginal dryness besides estrogen cream?

Hey ladies, Im about 17 days post op and having serious dryness issues. Not sex related, just incredibly uncomfortable, spasms wake me up and/or keeps me from sleeping. I can't do hormones, and didn't realize how uncomfortable I was til after my 2 wk checkup. Is it ok to use vasoline? I know I need to ask the doc, but am trying this tonight so I can get some rest. No estrogen allowed, what can I do?

At 17 days post op I don't think you are supposed to use anything at all without the doctor's approval.

I would not put anything especially vasoline in your vagina. You could be creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Call your dr.

Please check with your doctor before putting anything on/in the vaginal area. You can ask your doctor about Replens. I've read that is a fairly good one for dryness issues. But again, do not use anything until you consult with your doctor.
