About Vaginal Atrophy
Vaginal atrophy (VA), a chronic condition, is the thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall which occurs when there is a reduction in levels of estrogens. Estrogens, produced by the ovaries, are responsible for maintaining the structure and function of the vaginal wall, elasticity of the tissues around the vagina and production of vaginal fluid.  If left untreated, vaginal atrophy can have long-term effects in some women.5

Local estrogen therapy (LET) is available in the United States in various formulations, including conjugated estrogens and estradiol creams, estradiol vaginal ring, and estradiol vaginal tablet.3  The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) recommends low-dose, local vaginal estrogen therapy when estrogen therapy is considered solely for the treatment of VA.1  NAMS also recommends that the lowest effective dose of estrogen consistent with treatment goals, benefits and risks for the individual woman should be the therapeutic goal.6
