I couldn’t perceive any systemic effects from the vaginal route but that doesn’t mean there were none. They might have been too subtle to notice! I’ve read opinions that go both ways.Thank you so much. Do you know why the estrogen stays local? When my doctor, who I really do like, tho rarely see - told me that but I wanted to verify. Kind of doesn't make sense.
Also, thank you for your information - which did you say helped your vaginitis/chronic dry tissue? Vagifem?
I think the progest-e broke me out b/c I think I used it too liberally. It "feels" like a really good product for me. I thought using in the vagina would help me. It has not, or at least not yet before I had the breakout. (It took a few weeks for it to resolve, and fortunately no scarring. Looked like measles or something-but localized.)
If I use Cortinon, do you mean I don't (also) need progesterone?
Thank you Blossom.
Regardless I think dhea is phenomenal for the vaginal tissue. There’s a couple older discussions on the subject I’ll try to find for you. Even when I was using vaginal cortinon I still chose to cycle progesterone by applying it to my gums/oral mucous membranes 2 weeks out on the month.
Edit: you are certainly free to experiment with what works best for you!
