hormone tablets
Hi docter, I am on Activelle at the moment but have been in total now for 27years on hormone replacement.
What I find lately is that when I have a smear then it is terribly painful and I also develop an infection afterwards.l My dr said my uterus has become very thin due to the hormones.
Any suggestions to rectify this?

The uterus is thin from the menopause. You can use Premarin vaginal cream to help the vaginal atrophy.
