Femring review by 47 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Extremely Severe Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   hysterectomy
Dosage & duration:   1.0 mg/day taken dosage administered daily for the period of 4 days
Other conditions:   serious blistery rash
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   The Femring is great because you insert it and don't have to worry about remembering to take a pill or pills every day. This allows you freedom for the next three months, (90) days until your reorder a new ring. Also my insurance pays a good portion of the cost of the ring, whereas it did not cover the cost of bio-identical horomone treatments.
Side effects:   The bad thing about this certain dosage of the Femring was on the third day it seemed as though I was beginning to have vaginal irritation. The fourth day was obvious vaginal irritation with a blistery rash. Upon feeling and seeing this rash I removed the Femring and called my Dr.
Comments:   A lower dose Femring was prescribed, 0.05mg/day, which does a good job of returning my horomones levels to close to normal.
