Estradiol (Estrace) Vaginal Cream

I am long past my hysterectomy (TAH-BSO) it was 13 years ago. I am 58 years old and have been using the Estradiol Vaginal Cream for a few years now. I was on systemic hormones for many years for hot flashes (longer than I would have liked) but due to worries about my breasts I switched to this. I really could not tolerate the vaginal atrophy, it was REALLY severe. The problem I was having was having to reuse the applicator multiple times. No amount of time consuming cleaning ever seemed enough. Then there is the question of where to store the applicator-yuk.
I only want to let anyone who is interested know that I found a company from whom I was able to order disposable applicators in bulk. I love throwing the thing out after each use! I have nothing to do with this company at all. They do not have online ordering yet. The name of the company is Minerva Medica.
This Hyster Sisters site helped me so very much when I had my hysterectomy. I hope this information helps someone.

I use an estrace PILL--which comes in its own "plunger" that you throw out after each use. I love it. No messy creams to deal with, no messy applicator, no worrying about getting out of bed in the evening, and has been really working well to stop the atrophy.

Hopefully, I will have a more flexible pharmacy selections next year and can switch to that. I hate this mess but the difference has been worth the inconvenience.Thank you for the tip.
