Has anyone else done this? Any cautions, things to look out for? He warned us there's no suddenly feeling frisky in the middle of the night after I've applied it.
I made sure he knew it is very important to me (us) that we continue to be able to have a vibrant sex life as long as possible. (And what a great doctor God has blessed me with! He is able to put me totally at ease for talking about the most awkward things. He assures me he has heard it all and there is nothing I can talk about that will surprise him in the slightest. SO comforting when you need to bring up something awkward! IF YOU DON'T HAVE A DOCTOR LIKE THAT, CHANGE DOCTORS! It's totally worth it!
I started estrogen cream last June from a compounding pharmacy thru Defy and my hot flashes disappeared within one week.
My life has changed dramatically for the better.
I apply the cream to my inner thighs a half an hour or so after my morning shower.
I originally started using at night, but was concerned with transferring estrogen topically to DH during intimacy.....
Since we're not usually intimate in the am, I switched to morning applications.
I rotate which leg I apply cream....and kinda duck walk around without clothing until it's dry.
I do believe my skin isn't as fragile, and my emotions seem more "like me" since I started bhrt. The lack of hot flashes was my biggest blessing, everything else, a bonus.

I will have to do some research on my risk.
Thank you for this!!
I love it.... i apply it at night. Every cell in the female body is bathed with estrogen and the vagina is the most greedy, there's nothing really that can compensate for it however i am testing out DHEA as it's supposedly is as good as estrogen in treating vaginal atrophy as it turns into either estrogen or testosterone in the tissues (very unscientific explanation)
Okay: I started the cream last night (I wanted to wait until Valentine's weekend was over.) I love @SongOfAngels' phrase "bathed with estrogen", because that's kind of exactly how it felt. Is it possible or merely a placebo effect that after only ten to fifteen minutes (maybe less) I began to feel physical arousal-type sensations that I have had difficulty achieving lately? I was really hoping to get those sensations back--had been in denial about them fading--but it doesn't seem realistic to be feeling, well, kinda horny just from applying the cream one time. SO not complaining!!
The bigger question I have is: will I absorb ALL of the hormone between one night and just before that time the next evening or is there danger of DH getting some on him? (Should we use a condom to be safe?) What if I skip a shower? What if I apply it at 11 p.m., after a shower, then we have sex early in the day the next day? Like a Friday night and Saturday afternoon or even morning? These things didn't occur to me to ask my doctor. Didn't anticipate the cream acting so fast!
