This medication provides hormone replacement therapy. During menopause, woman's ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her period stops. Patients often buy Premarin Vaginal Cream to treat vaginal menopause symptoms such as dryness, burning, irritation, and painful sexual intercourse. The prescribed Premarin Vaginal Cream dosage can make up for the lower amount of estrogen. It may also be prescribed to people with kraurosis vulvae, a rare condition affecting the tissues around the vulva.
Premarin Vaginal Cream works by delivering estrogens directly to the source of the pain, to help rebuild vaginal tissue and make intercourse more comfortable. When estrogen topical cream is inserted into the vagina, it is absorbed by the vaginal tissues. The additional estrogens is what aids in rebuilding vaginal tissue and ease some or all of the vaginal symptoms of menopause.
