Lubrin insets are usually quite easy to use. It's recommended to inset them at least 5-10 minutes before intercourse. Just tear open the wrapper and insert with your finger inside the vagina.

Estrogen such as Premarin is usually better for restoring vaginal moisture, and when used as a vaginal cream it doesn't usually cause polyps to develop. Best wishes.
