 5  Vaginal dryness, painful sex Annoying odor, weight gain While the ring is large I never had any issues if following insertion/removal instructions. Never feel it. Definitely works within a few days. Creams helped but are messy and hard to remember. Wish estring was less expensive because I don't plan on going off it anytime soon. F 57 14 months

 3  vaginal dryness/painful intercourse nausea, insomnia, muscle pain, low mood, carpal tunnel syndrome, eczema, increase in environmental (respiratory) allergies, increased hot flashes Within a few days, the side effects I listed took hold. I decided to try to make it through the whole 3 month period to see if they would improve because Estring did make a huge difference vaginally. I also increased my B6 intake which helped somewhat. However, ultimately, I never felt well using Estring and this largely prevented intercourse. So I stopped using it. F 51 3 months

 4  Painful sex, Abdominal pain, breast tenderness First one I used for the full 3 months, brilliant sorted my symptoms out, some abdominal discomfort at first but that wore off. The second one I used more like for maintenance, in for a couple then took it out for a while. Rinsing in water and leaving it out, I think this also helps stop the odd odour. I went back to the cream for a while but it irritates after a bit, so will try estring again 53 6 months

 4  Vaginal dryness, painful sex I've noticed a not very pleasant odor, but no other problems. Helps greatly with the dryness. but going back to the estradiol cream until the odor is gone. I don't think there's any infection, it's not a really bad odor, just don't like it. F 65 90 days

 3  Vaginal atrophy severe burning Cramping at first and had a hard time squeezing it to insert. Hot flashes have increased and sometimes a funky smell. The burning has returned and it comes and goes. Iíll give it the 3 months and try one more refill. If it stays the same I will talk to my Dr about something else I just want the burning to go away. Itís so uncomfortable and annoying. I feel like itís a constant UTI that doesnít go away 56 2 months

 5  Severe atrophy with itching Ring is HUGE! It tends to "hang out" and be very uncomfortable. If I can get it into a comfortable position for sleeping, then I just use it then. Usually that is enough to relive my symptoms. If I can't, then I use my estrogen cream that night. This stuff works. Within one day a lot my discomfort was gone. I continued to improve rapidly even only using it at night. F 56 5 days

 5  Painful sex and vaginal dryness None. Hot flashes went from 10 a day to zero. A couple of hot flashes start up about 2 weeks prior to the end of E-string and disappear when new one is started. No more painful sex or urinary tract infections. This has been a life saver for me! The only issue I have is that I can't reach it to remove and have to have my husband do it. F 52 15 months

ESTRING  (ESTRADIOL):  This medication is a female hormone (estrogen). It is used by women to help reduce vaginal and urinary symptoms of menopause (such as vaginal dryness/burning/itching, painful urination, frequent urges to urinate). These symptoms are caused by the body making less estrogen. When treating only vaginal symptoms of menopause, products applied directly inside the vagina (such as this medication) should be used first. Estrogens that are taken by mouth, absorbed through the skin, or injected may have greater risks of side effects due to more estrogen being absorbed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
