Osphena or Premarin vaginal cream

I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with either Osphena or Premarin vagnal cream?   I had a total hysterectomy at 28yrs old and have been taking hormone replacement ever since.  I am now 41.  I suffer from numerous migraines a month and am concerned about taking the oral option for fear of increased migraines d/t the estrogen.
I used a vaginal tablet called Vagifem for several years that worked fine, but the last 5 years or so intimacy and intercourse is so painful that I might as well take a blow torch to my vagina and let it blaze away..sooo sorry for the TMI, but it is what it is. :(
ANY input at all would be appreciated!

Thank you very much for your response. I will discuss with my physician during my appointment next month.  Again, thank you.

Osphena (ospemifene) is a non-estrogen medication that reverses certain changes in vaginal tissue that are caused by menopause. Osphena is used to relieve pain during sexual intercourse in menopausal women. Premarin is an oestrogen cream and can be sued along with progesterone creams for better results. Consult your Doctor. Hope this helps.
