  • Vaginal dryness...heeeelp!

    I think my IC meds are drying out my vagina. I know they're responsible for my dry mouth and eyes. Anyone else suffer from this? I bought some Replens and haven't tried it yet. Am a little concerned it might irritate me. Advice?

    If you are suffering from extreme dryness, you really should discuss it with your physician. There may be other medication options for you without that side effect.

      I had the same problem to the point of bleeding. The gyn put me on an estrogen cream that you apply either into or at the opening of the vagaina. This helps to rebuild the walls and helps with dryness by means of the hormones.

        I have this problem and my Dr. told me to use K-y jelly and to keep myself moist. Mine would break open and bleed like a tear. It helped. Hugs <img src="graemlins/kissing.gif" border="0" alt="[kissing]" />
