I am 71 and have had recurrent UTIs.
My GP has prescribed me Oestriol cream and told to use it daily, on my genitals, to help with the post-menopausal atrophy of the general area but particularly around my urethral opening.
With oestriol I do not need progesterone.
The leaflet in the box says that particular care should be exercised " if you have a disease of the immune system, eg SLE ( lupus)".
I should like to know if anyone on this forum has used this form of topical HRT and if so,any problems, such as a flare of symptoms?
