    Premarin

    My doctor is prescribing Premarin for my vagina atrophy. I'm not sure I want to take it because of the side effects it can cause like blood clots and stroke. Anyone here took it and did it help the atrophy? Wants me to use it for 14 days and after that twice a week.

    Re: Premarin

    I had a procedure done instead...it is called monalisa touch and it was done in the office by my gynecologist. It helped tremendously. I was really against using premarin or any hormones

    Maybe you can ask your doctor if they do it or if they can refer you to someone who does? it made a world of difference!

    Thanks. I'll ask my doctor about the procedure.

    I take Activella, a newer HRT, and am really happy with the results. You might ask about newer meds. Premarin has been around a long time
