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.

Hi, lately I ve noticed a tender/painful area on the right inside of my labia. I Looked at it today. It s only on the right side, it s large and connected in the center(not the actual labia) it s kinda itchy, irritating when I wash down there or cross my legs. Ive had a cyst before and this is nothing like that. No discharge or odor is present. I showed my husband and he says it s definitely new. What could it be?

Hi! I have been using Claratin D for years and am now past menopause. I stopped taking it a couple of weeks ago because it was drying up all of my orafices and I was finding it more difficult to lose weight. I am allergic to sulfamides, but no doctor I have ever used ever pointed out that this could be a problem. I am also having trouble with my retina.

I have been on HRT for about 7 years and I have had a great experience until last year. My provider upped my estrogen. I gained 10 -15 pounds in 8 weeks. After a year of getting it out of my system I am finally returning to my old body. Two weeks ago I went for my HRT. He upped my estrogen level despite me stating I wasnt having hot flashes, mood swings, etc. Within a day or two my hands started being cold all of the time, and they are hard to get warm. Now, two weeks out my nipples are getting extremely sore. I have never experienced the cold hand before. I did experience the tender nipples last year for the first time after he upped my estrogen and I gained weight. Could the weight gain, sore nipples, and cold hands be from having too much estrogen?
