Vagi-fem With Oral Prometrium

Comments Submitted Says:

I am on Vagi-Fem (25mcg vaginal cream) twice per week for vaginal dryness. I've been instructed by my new doctor to take Prometrium (100mg) for 12 days every other month to make sure my endometrium is not thickening. I have not heard of this type of hormone replacement therapy before. I am post-menopause 12 years now. Is this a new therapy? What are the benefits/side effects?

Prometrium has been on the market since 1998, it contains Progesterone. So, it is not really new.


Have you tried asking your doctor or pharmacist for more information?

Thank you for replying. This isn't the first time I've been on HRT but it is the first time I've been told to add the progresterone to balance out such a small dose of vaginal cream. I'm wondering if it is overload. My doc says I need the progesterone since I will be on the estradiol cream for such a long period of time. He says I need it to be balanced out - uterus-wise. I'm this is a new HRT that is being used for post-menopausal women? Do you know where I might find info on this particular therapy?

Thanks for your help - I am very appreciative!
