Re: atrophic vaginitis
I use the estrace every day and find it very mild. It keeps the vaginal skin very elastic and helps prevent further atrophy. I'm careful to use only a pea sized amount each time since too large an amount could cause irritation. Depending on whether you live in Canada or the States, you have to purchase a different product.
In Canada, I purchase Estradial 17B and have it compounded at a .1mg/per gram into a glaxal base. I do get it created at a compounding pharmacy. In the States, it's possible to buy the estrace ready prepared.
Depending on whether you have true atrophic vaginitis or a form that comes with problems that involve itchiness, skin splitting, irritation etc, you can also use a presription steroid ointment to get the skin under control.
