Happy 30th birthday to me! :roll:
My doc just diagnosed me as having Estrogen Depletion related to Breast Feeding and prescribed me an estrogen vaginal cream to treat the vaginal constriction I've been experiencing. 11 months out from birth and DTD is still really painful and tight. My guess is I would have healed and not be experiencing this if I hadn't gotten that stupid Depo shot at 4 months out. *sigh*
Anyone else experience this? It's something that happens in menopause, but CAN happen when breastfeeding (though not usually). Lucky me. Good news is it's supposed to end when I quit breastfeeding. But I don't plan on doing that any time soon and could see me going all the way to two years. So I opted for the cream. The damned expensive cream! ($50 after insurance).
