The menopause is more than just a milestone marking the end of a womans reproductive years. It’s also a time that can cause a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms, some of which can permanently change your body and how it functions. One of the most common changes reported by menopausal and post-menopausal women is persistent vaginal dryness. 

If menopause has left you suffering with vaginal dryness, there are treatments like Ovestin Cream that can help restore lubrication. Easy to use, Ovestin Cream has been trusted by women for years to help them with many menopause side effects including vaginal dryness. 

What is Ovestin Cream?

Ovestin Cream is a topical form of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains a type of female oestrogen hormone called estriol. Ovestin can be used by postmenopausal women who have not had a period for at least 12 months. During the menopause, oestrogen levels begin to drop and this loss of oestrogen is what causes the often uncomfortable menopausal symptoms. One of the most common complaints among postmenopausal women is vaginal dryness.

What is Vaginal Dryness?

The vagina is coated with a thin layer of moisture that lubricate the vaginal wall, reducing friction during sexual intercourse. This moisture is also needed to provide the environment sperm needs to survive and travel through the vagina and into the reproductive system. 

Oestrogen loss can cause the vaginal walls to become thinner which in turn makes them dryer because there are fewer cells producing lubrication. Vaginal dryness makes the vagina more susceptible to itching, pain, and even infection. It also can make sex unpleasant and painful. 

By applying Ovestin directly to the affected area, you can treat these symptoms right where they start. It may take a few weeks for you to notice a difference in your symptoms so it’s important to continue using Ovestin as directed by your GP or pharmacist. 

Other Uses for Ovestin Cream

In addition to helping with postmenopausal vaginal dryness, Ovestin Cream can be used as pre- and post-operative therapy for postmenopausal women having vaginal surgery. It can also be prescribed to women to help prepare them for pap smears. 

Because of the changes the vagina experiences during menopause, pap smears can be very uncomfortable. This can make a woman wary of getting a potentially life saving smear. Smears are important for women of all ages, whether sexually active or not, because some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can take years to show symptoms. This is especially true for HPV, an STI that is the #1 cause of cervical cancer. 

Cervical cancer or precancerous cervical cells are easy to treat in the early stages and can only be diagnosed during a routine cervical smear. To maintain your sexual health, it’s important to get a pap smear as recommended by your GP. Using Ovestin Cream prior to the smear can help reduce any discomfort from the procedure. 

Can You Use Ovestin Cream for Bladder Problems?

As we grow older, it’s common for us to find we need to urinate more often. This can be particularly pronounced in postmenopausal women. Studies have shown that vaginal oestrogen therapy like Ovestin Cream can potentially help calm down an overactive bladder.

Additionally, the use of Ovestin Cream may also help reduce the severity of a condition known as nocturia. With nocturia, people wake up frequently throughout the night because of the urge to urinate. Nocturnia reduces sleep quality and lack of sleep can have a cascading impact on all aspects of your life and your ability to go about your day-to-day activities. 

How Do I Apply Ovestin Cream?

At first, you will most likely be prescribed a higher dose of Ovestin before it is gradually reduced as your symptoms subside. You may be asked to stop using it every few months so that your healthcare provider can check if your symptoms are still occurring. 

This is just a guide, but in general the recommended dosages for Ovestin Cream are:

    . For menopause, you may be advised to use one dose per day for 3-4 weeks before reducing this to one dose twice a week. 

    . For vaginal surgery or pap smears, the recommended dosage is usually once per day for 1-2 weeks.
