I was prescribed Yuvafem for vaginal dryness and I am concerned about the side effects. I don t have a bleeding disorder, but I do have ulcerative colitis and take a daily maintenance dose of medication and have been in remission for years. My concern is I have an increased risk of cancer due to the ulcerative colitis and wonder if this medication is too risky.

Taken a 10mg dose of propanolol for the first time 3 times yesterday, given by doctor for rapid heart rate. Taken twice today. Regretting the decision after reading side effects even though they calmed me down. Would I have bad effects if I took no more.
