Vaginal estrogens work by increasing the amount of discharge produced from the vagina. This normal discharge helps make the vagina function properly and relieves the dryness and soreness associated with menopause. This estrogen dose will also lessen or vanquish any pain felt during intercourse, the itching or redness experienced around the vulva and any urge to urinate more frequently, and peeing with pain. Estrogen is absorbed into the bloodstream and can be taken orally, applied as a cream, as a suppository, or as a vaginal insert with an extended time release.
