Is Estrogen Prohibited If Suffering From Lymphoma?

I am 76. Intercourse or even a gynecologist checking my vagina is painful because of an episotomy in childbirth. Evidently the skin is so thin and dry. I cannot take estrogen because I have lymphoma cancer. I understand the doctors no longer do this routine. Any suggestions without estrogen?

Hello,

You can safely take estrogen preparation as it has no link with lymphoma. If you want to avoid, then any local emolient you can take.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
