Vivelle Dot plus Estrace for healing repairs

I'm on Vivelle Dot .1 mg after my TLH, BSO plus a&p repairs almost 4 weeks ago. Last week, I started wearing it on my rear end for maximum absorption and I feel great.
At my doctor's visit yesterday, he noted that in some areas in my vagina the incision hasn't begun to seal together well and is just being held together tightly by the stitches. In an effort to help the skin to fuse together before those stitches start dissolving he started me on Estrace .1 mg cream 3x/week until I see him again next month.

I have a couple of questions...
Due to the increase of estradiol in my system now should I move the Vivelle dot to my abdomen when I change it tomorrow to avoid symptoms of too much estrogen?
Has anyone had good results with Estrace improving vaginal tissue healing?

Re: Vivelle Dot plus Estrace for healing repairs

Hi Gail!

I've never experienced any symptoms of too much estrogen when using vaginal estrogen along with my Vivelle Dot but there are some who have reported having that happen. It might be best to keep doing what is working for you, use the vaginal estrogen, watch for symptoms and then adjust if necessary. Call your doctor or talk to your pharmacist about this, too.

I've not used vaginal estrogen for healing but have used it for vaginal dryness/atrophy. It was very effective for that and I have read that it's helpful for healing, too. Hopefully someone who can share from experience will be along soon to respond. Meanwhile, you may find the information in this link helpful: Vaginal Dryness.

I hope this helps!

Thank you, April Dawn. That article is very helpful. So far I've found that the Estrace doesn't seem to affect me systemically. So I'll leave well enough alone for now.

You mentioned using the Estrace for dryness/atrophy. When you use it for that purpose, do you need to use it on an ongoing basis to keep the problem from recurring?
