Vagifem good idea?

Had my 6 month check up with Dr yesterday and came home with samples of Vagifem for vaginismus. I have wanted to stay away from all hrt for several health reasons. Dr tells me I won't absorb enough to cause any of my problems to get worse. I'm a doubter. What have others experienced on this drug?

Re: Vagifem good idea?

Love it. My oncologist gives it to all her patients who have issues with vaginal dryness. The dose is so very small that it tends to stay locally in the vaginal walls and not go into the general circulation.

My only issue with Vagifem is the cost - my DR keeps me going with samples because it is quite expensive otherwise. There are less expensive options, but frankly, Vagifem is much neater and easier to use.

What about weight gain? I've worked really hard since my hysterectomy and have lost 30 pounds. I would like to lose between 10 and 15 more. I really don't want to lose ground especially now when the weather gets colder in Wi and my prime source of exercise is walking.

Since Vagifem doesn't have systemic activity, it cannot possibly cause weight gain.
