These vaginal suppositories help with dryness, itching, burning, urgency and irritation. As you age hormones decline (menopause) and this causes many vaginal symptoms. One of roles of estrogens is to keep the vaginal tissue at a lower pH to help fight infections and keep tissue healthy. One of the first signs of lower estrogens (besides hot-flashes) is recurrent UTIs and yeast infections. The addition of these ovals can dramatically decrease these types of infections. The first pharmacy I opened was next to an assisted living facility, I saw these types of infections in women 65+ 6-12 times a years. With proper hormone balance I was able to reduce those numbers to 1-2 times a years.
