Satisfaction, acceptability high with vaginal estradiol softgel capsules

Satisfaction, acceptability high with vaginal estradiol softgel capsules
February 17, 2017

Postmenopausal women with vulvar and vaginal atrophy reported high satisfaction and acceptability with vaginal estradiol softgel capsules compared with previously used therapies to treat their symptoms, study data show.

“[Vulvar and vaginal atrophy] is a chronic condition associated with genitourinary syndrome of menopause and affects 50% to 70% of postmenopausal women,” Sheryl A. Kingsberg, PhD, division chief, obstetrics and gynecology behavioral medicine, UH Cleveland Medical Center and professor of obstetrics and gynecology and psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, told Endocrine Today. “Symptoms include pain with sexual activity, dryness and discomfort. Despite safe and effective prescription therapies, [vulvar and vaginal atrophy] remained under-treated. The availability of a new applicator-free delivery system may be one step to increasing discussion of [vulvar and vaginal atrophy] and treatments between women and [health care providers].”
