I had a tah/ovaries removed in January 2004. I had a very bad reaction to systemic estrogen--heart pounding, adrenaline attacks, shaking, etc. I've been off hormones for 2 months, and my main complaints are vaginal burning and frequent urination.
Has anyone been able to use Estring who couldn't tolerate systemic estrogen? Thanks !!!!!!

I don't have an answer to your question, but thought I'd send a and bump your question up. If no responses here, maybe try this post in the Hormone Jungle Forum? Ladies over there are quite knowledgeable!

Hi Kayleen

I'll spare you the trip to the Jungle and answer you here!

The vaginal estrogens pretty much stay in those tissues and don't give a systemic effect. Estring is one, and there are several others, too. Estring is inserted and meant to stay in place for up to 3 months. Vagifem is a tiny tablet inserted vaginally. Initially it's prescribed to use once daily for 2 weeks and then twice a week thereafter. Another choice is to use an estrogen cream. Some of them are Premarin, Estrace and you could also get a compounded vaginal cream. Isn't it great to have choices?

I started out using Vagifem and then switched to a compounded cream when the rest of my HRT was changed. Now I'm considering changing to the Estring. Vagifem was nice because there's no mess involved. I imagine there's no mess with Estring either. The creams can be a little messy but they do work well.

I hope this helps you!

I did not have reactions to bi-est, so I cannot answer your
question. However, I had terrible urinary frequency. The Estring
really helped ease that problem. I tried Estriol, but I found very
little relief. Also, I tried Vagifem. I found that I needed the
slight daily dose of estrogen from the Estring to help with the
urinary frequency problem.
