Premarin Vaginal Cream Information:
Premarin Vaginal Cream (generic name: Conjugated Estrogens) is a approved therapy for the treatment of menopause symptoms including irritation and burning in the vagina and vagina dryness. It works by actually treating the underlying cause of the symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms. Premarin cream is usually prescribed before any oral medications will be considered, as it carries less side effects and risks. It also helps to restore the tissue in and around the vagina. The cream contains the female hormone estrogen. In women who go through the menopause, the estrogen levels drop which can cause uncomfortable symptoms in and around the vagina. Premarin cream relieves these symptoms by releasing a small amount of the hormone into the blood through the vagina. Premarin cream may also be used to treat painful intercourse caused by the symptoms of the menopause. It can be applied at any time of day or night as and when required for quick relief of itching and burning. Because it treats the cause, it is not required to be used forever and can be stopped once symptoms improve.
