Why Premarin Vaginal Cream?
After menopause, changes to the vagina can cause pain during intercourse, called dyspareunia.
Premarin Vaginal Cream is clinically proven to relieve moderate to severe painful intercourse caused by menopausal changes. Unlike over-the-counter treatments, it works by delivering estrogens directly to the source of the pain, to help rebuild vaginal tissue and make intercourse more comfortable.
With Premarin Vaginal Cream, you’re not taking a hormone pill. It’s a hormone-based cream applied vaginally. You simply apply a blueberry-sized dose with a special applicator directly to the affected area.
In a 12-week clinical study, just 0.5 g of Premarin Vaginal Cream twice a week significantly relieved moderate to severe painful intercourse due to menopause. Individual results may vary.
Premarin Vaginal Cream should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with the treatment goals and risks for the individual woman.
