Hi ladies! I was just wondering if anyone here has experienced vaginal dryness due to menopause despite being on HRT?
I'm 6 months post-op (radical hysterectomy after 1b1 CC diagnosis) and have been on HRT patches (Evorel) since day 2 post op, they seem to be keeping my symptoms under control after a slight tweak of dosage, and all was going well until the dryness started a few days ago making things a little itchy/uncomfortable!
I spent a day stressing myself out thinking it was CC recurrence down there but I've since tried some gels etc and have just discovered replens which seems to be working!
Going to call docs this week to discuss and see if I can get it on prescription, but wondering whether I will need to up the HRT or stick with current dose but accept the fact that I'm going to nees to use a gel/cream regularly.
I'm sure my doc will be able to advise but was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? Tia ☺
