I just wonder if you have any other menopausal symptoms and have you thought about HRT at all?
Thank you for reading my question. I have been told I cannot use hormone replacement therapy because of my history with Breast Cancer. In fact, I've been told there is very little available to me because of the cancer treatment and type of cancer I had. Any natural products or possible medical treatment suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Carol. If you have been cancer free for 5 years or more then an absolute prohibition on HRT is an opinion not shared by all doctors. As always in these matters the benefit/risk ratio needs careful consideration. This is all the more so if what you are suffering is putting a strain on your relationship and making your life a misery. I would have thought that vaginal estrogen application in particular would offer a very low risk indeed. However, you and your doctor are in the best position to make this decision. I hope all goes well for you.
