  • Relentless pain from Estriol cream

    Dear all,

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced increased pain when using Estriol cream vaginally post menopause? It doesn't burn upon insertion, but for a day or two after each application I feel like something is walking all over my pelvic floor causing continuous pain. This symptom did not begin until after I had used it daily for more than a week, and then the flares began intermittently, and now that I am using it 3 times a week, during the night after using the cream, the flare begins and will last at least a day and a night with continuous pain. I am speaking to the local compounding pharmacy to learn what else is in the cream, don't have an appointment with physician until another few weeks. Has anyone else had to deal with this and what did you do?

    Even if you don't have an appointment right away, I suggest you telephone the office --- I also think your contacting the pharmacy is a good idea --- and you'll want to keep a record of the contents for future reference.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe
