What is Premarin Vaginal Cream prescribed for?

Premarin Vaginal medication is a type of sex hormone for postmenopausal women. It helps relieve uncomfortable vaginal symptoms that happen during menopause, like dryness, burning, and itching. These symptoms occur because the body produces less estrogen. When treating only the vaginal symptoms of menopause, it's best to start with products applied directly inside the vagina. Estrogens taken by other methods may have more side effects because they allow more estrogen to enter the body. Premarin Cream can help relieve uncomfortable coitus but does not impact sex drive. It also cannot prevent heart disease.
