Hi. I don't have any odor or discharge, and yet my vaginal membranes feel all irritated. I do not have a UTI, nor do I have a yeast infection cause I already tried the cure for that. What could be going on with me?I am 49.I thought BV had both sliminess, and odor?I have had to use Vagisil every night for 8 nights, which does calm it down enuf to get to sleep.Kathy

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Are you menopausal?
And you do NOT have an odor, correct?
I have skipped a couple of periods in the past, and no, no odor
You are probably in menopause or perimenopause so your estrogen levels are probably low, and this is starting to cause some vaginally atrophy - thinning of your vaginal membranes (skin) and you benefit from Estradiol cream or pills - and if you have a uterus this can be taken intermittant, if you do not have a uterus, then you can use estradiol daily.
I hope this helps, Please click on ACCEPT as this would be appreciated, if you have additional questions, please ask and thank you very much
is that available over the counter or prescription only?
You will need a prescription for either the cream or the pills.
You can use for example 10mg Estradiol tablets and insert in the vagina 2 to 3 times per week.
forever? or till it feels better
No, you do not need to do this forever, just for comfort measures - so it can be used as needed.
ok thank you
