Medical Doctor Q&A's
Name: Tania

Can using estrogen creams for vaginal dryness (Estrace) cause uterine lining buildup. I'm menopausal with no periods in the last 14 months. I am to use this cream for relief--but am somewhat afraid. I take Provera (6 days) every couple of months--but no period release. Is this OK?

The use of vaginal estrogen creams does not generally cause
uterine lining buildup. I prefer to use Estriol vaginal cream rather than Estrace (estradiol) vaginal cream. Use it daily for 10 days and then 2x per week after that.Using estriol this way you should have no problems. I do not believe the Provera is helping you and would not use it. If you need progesterone, take natural progesterone.
