Premarin cream is a female hormone product that helps regulate estrogen levels in women during menopause to reduce symptoms.
It comes in both cream and tablet form and is part of a family of estrogen replacement therapy medication. Its main use is to manage estrogen loss due to menopause. It can help counter urinary and vaginal menopausal symptoms like itching, burning, dryness, burning sensation during urination or painful sexual intercourse.
Menopause is an umbrella term that decribes the three phases: perimenopause, menopause, postmenopause
Perimenopause is the start of estrogen loss for women. It can last several years before menopause and estrogen loss progresses even further during the late stages.
Menopause is the phase in which a year has passed since a women’s last menstrual period. The ovaries stop releasing eggs and estrogen loss symptoms start to develope.
Postmenopause is the last stage which can last for a few years after menopause. During this stage, women can suffer from hot flashes and other symptoms caused by a loss of estrogen.
Hot flashes is one of the most common symptom women face during menopause. Hot flashes come in different severities. It is described as a sudden feeling of warmth that generally starts off and spreads throughout the upper body. A mild case causes minor blushing while more severe case causes excessive sweating.
Other symptoms that women may experience during menopause are: insomnia, fatigue, racing heartbeat, mood swings, irritability, headaches, point and muscle pains, as well as other varying symptoms.
Since it comes in a cream, it can easily be applied to a specific area and can directly apply estrogen to the source of the pain. During menopause the depletion of estrogen weakens the vaginal walls and reduces control over the urinary tract which leads to painful intercourse or uncontrollable urination.Premarin is able to help rejuvenate the walls and provide the estrogen needed to maintain vaginal health. It can be applied two times a week or as prescribed for a planned therapy.
The cost of Premain as a tablet could cost a fortune per month. The cream comes at an even higher cost starting at $300 for a single tube of cream. Prices such as these are astronomical when with coverage. For anyone who isn’t covered, getting the benefits of Premarin cream would be unaffordable.
