Hi Mary ,
I think you should apply premarin ointment which contains conjugated oestrogens or evalon ointment.

I just noticed there is a soft round bulge just inside the opening of my vagina. It looks like the size of about a smallish lime. It is soft and looks vascular. There is no pain or bleeding. I am in menopause and 61 years old. No other symptoms exist. Sometimes I feel cramping, but not excessive or painful. Can you advise what it might be before I call the doctor in a panic. Thank you.

I have a monthly pimple on my labia majora that starts out small and itchy, then grows into a somewhat bigger lump that starts to becomes kinda sore. Then it changes into something like a red abrasion like sore that burns terribly when I pee. It still itches a little as well. What s weird is that it shows up in the same area every month right before my cycle. Another thing is that I don t have a period anymore; just the symptoms. Is this all related? I m only 46 years old. Maybe I m menopausal.

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
