Premarin Cream (Conjugated Estrogens) is used to treat the symptoms of menopause including hot flashes, painful sexual intercourse, vaginal dryness, vaginal burning and vaginal irritation. These symptoms are caused by the body making less estrogen which is a female sex hormone produced in the ovaries and necessary for many body processes. Premarin Cream works by replacing the estrogen that is normally produced by the body. In addition to being prescribed for menopausal symptoms, Premarin cream can also be used to treat kraurosis vulvae.
Premarin Vaginal Cream is normally prescribed on a schedule of using the cream daily for multiple weeks followed by one week when the cream is not applied at all. You should always follow your doctor’s directions. To use Premarin Cream, fill your applicator with the correct amount of cream before lying on your back with your knees up toward your chest. Insert the applicator into your vagina gently and push the plunger down in order to release the cream. Once released, slowly remove the applicator and clean it with mild soap and warm water.
