I have been dealing with vaginal pain and severe dryness for a while now.  I finally went and saw my midwife (nurse midwife) and she prescribed Premarin cream.  I used it once but had a horrible feeling about it and when I researched it I was appauled.  I can't bring myself to use it anymore but I feel like I NEED something.  I have been searching for natural creams but it seems that everyone is selling something that's "natural" these days.

 

Does anyone have any wisdom they could impart on me?  I'd really appreciate it :)

My SIL was on Premarin last year and while it did help her vaginal dryness she started growing facial hair and was nauseous all the time, had horrible breast pain. :( Now she's using a cream with wild yam that she swears by. And I think it has Lady's Mantle as well which is meant to be great for that. Good luck, Mama!
