femring comparison

Hi i was wondering if any one knows how the .05 or .1 femring compares in dosage to other medications. I am confused as to which on would work best. Thanks

Hi Shellyn,

I switched to the .05 femring from the .075 Vivelle dot and have had very good results so far (6 weeks in).

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It's nice to not have to think about your HRT on a daily or even weekly basis.

There is the .5 and the .10.
I don't really understand the comparison of doses with oral or the patches (I've used them all), but I've had the .5 for 2 weeks now and thing are going pretty good.
I think my dose may be a little low, headaches and sleep disturbances, but the hot flashes are improving and DH and I actually made love without a lubricant and I had no discomfort.
(That's a first, since surgery 6/17 !!)

I FINALLY feel like I'm on my way to that ever elusive "hormone balance ! "Femring and topical testosterone once a day. Yeah!!!

I am so glad you feel like you've found something that works well for you and so early on. I had my surgury on Sept. 11, 2001 and am still having major problems. I have been so frusterated and depressed about it. I still have pain during intimacy, (among a whole host of other complications) with estring and estriol cream.... i've tried patches, creams, gels, injections, pills all of them. I made an appointment in the states and will be driving down this month to try and get a femring. So many of you have had good luck with it and i must say my hopes are up. I will have to pay for everything cause my health care will only cover Canada but it will be worth it if it works!
