I had a smear recently and the G.P. that did the smear advised me about Estradiol Pessaries, 25mg, and how they may help with vaginal dryness and bladder urgency. I used the pessaries for 7 weeks and they helped a lot, but my G.P. (not the one who did the smear test) was not keen to do a repeat prescription as she said that they may cause problems later on.
My smear was normal, as was my mammography. No cancer history in family either. Will Progesterone help with my symptoms - hot flushes not really a problem but dryness and itching of skin is a problem as is bladder urgency. I am 54.
