Ovestin Cream is a topical treatment used to alleviate symptoms of atrophic vaginitis, a condition characterised by vaginal dryness and irritation commonly experienced by postmenopausal women due to lower oestrogen levels.
The cream’s active ingredient is estriol, a form of oestrogen, which supplements the body’s natural oestrogen levels. This helps rejuvenate and maintain healthy vaginal tissue, relieving symptoms of vaginal atrophy.
About Ovestin Cream
How often should I use Ovestin Cream?
Usage frequency can vary based on individual needs, but generally, it is applied once daily for the first few weeks, then reduced to 1-2 times a week. However, always follow your healthcare provider's instructions or the guidelines provided with the product.
Can I use Ovestin Cream if I'm experiencing menopause symptoms other than vaginal dryness?
Ovestin Cream is primarily intended to alleviate symptoms of atrophic vaginitis such as vaginal dryness and irritation. For other menopause symptoms, consult your healthcare provider for the most suitable treatment.
Can Ovestin Cream be used during sexual intercourse?
Ovestin Cream can make sex more comfortable by relieving vaginal dryness. However, it's not a sexual lubricant. If needed, use a water-based lubricant in addition to the cream. Always check with your healthcare provider or refer to the product instructions.
Are there any side effects to using Ovestin Cream?
As with any medication, some people may experience side effects. Common ones may include local irritation or itching. If you experience persistent or severe side effects, discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider.
Can Ovestin Cream be used alongside other treatments for menopausal symptoms?
It's best to consult your healthcare provider when considering combining treatments. While Ovestin Cream is generally safe to use alongside other treatments, individual health situations may vary.
