Hi I’m 54 and post menopause. I have had vaginal atrophy so I was prescribed Vagifem pessaries. I started using them last week so I have had thrush and little spotting and cramps! I heard it transforms women’s lives. Has anyone else had the same side effects? Do the side effects subside?
I've been on them a few weeks now. Done the every night for 2 weeks and now on twice a week. Tbh I've not had any problems with thrush . During the two-week daily, I did get some mild period pain like symptoms but they have now gone . I don't feel I can comment about transforming lives as I'm not much further than you. Hopefully someone will have all the answers for you soon.
