VAGIFEM solved all my problems---- works GREAT!!!
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.

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.
