  • estrogen rings

    My urologist subscribed an estrogen ring, for less pain for sexual relations with my man. I.m just assuming this is the reason, I'm not sure. It was alright for about 3 months. When I changed it for the next session, within 3 weeks I had to take it out it was so painful I couldn't stand it. I was wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this ring.

      I had a ring a few years ago and I thought it was irritating so I took it out. The last doc gave me cream, but I kept forgettin g to use it. So another doc has represcribed the ring because it is less of a dosage than the cream and more consistent. I haven't inserted it yet. Sort of nervous.
      I got IC in 1970! I was not diagnosed until 1991. I've tried many drugs and therapies but I tend to only resort to drugs when in a flare because when I am not in a flare (from being good on diet), I suffer only from small bladder volume (like about 7 ozs.) and peeing will relieve the discomfort. When I am feeling relatively normal, I say to myself I am glad I am not on a drug. When I am in a flare, I say, why am I not on a drug! I've recently have been trying to solve my connective issue problems in general. I look to diet and herbs mostly unless it gets really bad. I still think there is great hope for each individual finding a path to healing and there are many.

        I also used the ring until IC and now I use vagifem once a week. I like it better and I don't have the dryness now.
