Generally, when estrogen is prescribed to a postmenopausal woman with a uterus, a progestin should be given to reduce the risk of endometrial cancer. A woman without a uterus does not require progestin. Whether you have been prescribed estrogen alone or in combination with progestin, your doctor will always recommend the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration. Vagifem should be administered intravaginally using the applicator supplied along with the medicine. The recommended dose is one tablet daily for two weeks. Postmenopausal women should be re-evaluated periodically to determine if treatment is still necessary. Follow your doctor’s advice for more information.
