I saw my oncologist yesterday for a checkup. I am having a chest and abdomen CT scan in June.
I told him I was getting very dry down there, and he recommended me a vaginal cream ESTRACE (Estradiol vaginal cream, USP, 0.01%). He gave me a sample and a prescription. When I got home, I started to read the information and side effects, and the first thing I saw was DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE OR HAVE HAD BREAST OR UTERINE CANCER, among other things.
I am shocked that my oncologist recommended this cream. I even asked him if that was going to be an issue given my history. It may be OK, but I was wondering if anyone has ever used this cream before. It is basically to moisturize the vagina.
