vulvar atrophy (or where did my vagina go?)

I am taking bioidentical HRT after a total hyst 1 year ago. I am doing okay now (knock on wood), but I have noticed that my labia is shrinking (the skin tone is also very poor) and I also have EXTREME vaginal dryness. Progesterone cream? Is that my answer? I am currently taking estradiol, estriol, prgesterone and testosterone. HELP!!!

You may need some vaginal estrogen cream. Have you called your doctor about this?

Hi madonna Kim is right, you need to talk with your DR about this one. I've also heard of ladies having great success with using the testosterone cream on their vulvar area instead of other forms... apparently the area is loaded with testosterone receptors. Please let us know what your DR recommends and how it works for you, we're all learning together here!
