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.
