VAGIFEM solved all my problems---- works GREAT!!!
Extremely happy with Vagifem tablet results---NO side effects. Easy to use, no mess and has solved all my problems with dryness, atrophy, etc at my age of 68. My doctor surely knows what works BEST!!!
Vagifem didn't help me at all. Wish I had your results. I am still looking for an effective medication for vaginal dryness. Currently using Premarin.

foot and leg cramps at night
My last message was cut off.... Asics sneakers also have great support. I have been using Estrace for months and have not had any issues with cramps. Good luck.

Just a thought.... In my 50's I started getting severe leg and foot cramps and went to a Podiatrist and found that my arches had fallen. As soon as he pointed it out I could see clearly that the arch on my right foot particularly was gone. He recommended always wearing some type of shoes with good arch support. I never go barefoot now for more than a walk to the bathroom and the leg and foot cramps have stopped. Personally Clark's shoes make some very good supportive shoes that also look gr

Cramps with vagifem
just feel crap constant pain lpwer tumm and really bloated
July 17, 2014
I am on day 5 of the 14 day loading dose. 24 hours after using the first insert, I developed intestinal cramping/pain and never thought it could be from the Vagifem. Yesterday (day 4) was the first day I felt somewhat normal again but I still have mild pain here and there. Also, gained 2 lbs and now experiencing vaginal burning today (day 5). I really hope these symptoms resolve with use.
