What Is Ogen Vaginal Cream?

) is a prescription medication that contains an estrogen hormone. It is inserted vaginally using a special applicator. Ogen Vaginal Cream is used to treat dryness, itching, and burning in and around the vagina, usually in postmenopausal women.

How Does Ogen Vaginal Cream Work?
Ogen Vaginal Cream contains estropipate
, an estrogen hormone. It helps relieve menopausal symptoms by replacing estrogen that the ovaries no longer produce. It is a good alternative to hormone replacement therapy
taken by mouth, especially in women who only have vaginal menopausal symptoms. It should be noted that a significant amount of Ogen Vaginal Cream is absorbed into the bloodstream, and many of the risks associated with oral estrogen hormone replacement therapy are expected to occur with Ogen Vaginal Cream as well.
