BENEFITS OF PREMARIN VAGINAL CREAM

With hormone replacement therapy

Hormone therapy (HRT) is a treatment that relieves menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and loss of libido. Menopause can last for years, so this treatment can greatly improve your daily life and mood. Estrogen is one of the two important hormones (the other being progesterone) used in this treatment. Vaginal tablets and gels are an easy way to deliver hormones, but may not treat all symptoms. This medication should be used as directed by your doctor and for as long as directed.

THINGS WE SHOULD AVOID WHILE USING THIS CREAM 

When using Premarin cream, it`s important to be aware of certain precautions and potential interactions to ensure safe and effective use. Here are some things you should avoid

Allergies

If you have a known allergy to estrogens or any other ingredients in Premarin cream, you should avoid using it. Allergic reactions can range from mild skin irritation to more severe symptoms, so it’s crucial to consult with your healthcare provider if you suspect an allergy.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Premarin cream is not intended for use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Estrogens can potentially harm the developing fetus or pass into breast milk and affect the nursing baby. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor about alternative options.

Systemic Absorption

When Premarin Cream is applied topically to the vaginal area, small amounts may be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, systemic absorption is significantly lower compared to oral estrogen therapy. If you want to avoid systemic effects, talk to your healthcare provider about non-hormonal replacement or lower-dose options.

Interactions with other drugs

Tell your doctor about all medicines you are currently taking, including prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal products. Some medicines, such as certain anticoagulants or medicines used to treat epilepsy, can interact with Premarin Cream, potentially reducing its effectiveness or increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider can help you decide if medication adjustments are needed.

Smoking

Smoking cigarettes or using tobacco products may increase your risk of some side effects associated with estrogen therapy. Estrogen is associated with an increased risk of blood clots, heart disease, and stroke, and smoking further increases these risks. If you smoke, consult your doctor as it may affect your decision to use Premarin Cream.

Regular Checkups

Regular checkups with your health care provider are important while using Premarin Cream or other hormone therapy. They can monitor your response to treatment, evaluate potential side effects, and adjust your dosage or treatment plan as needed. Remember, these are general guidelines and it is essential to consult your healthcare provider for personalized advice based on your medical history and current health condition.
