How Does It Work?

Premarin Vaginal Cream is a mixture of natural equine (horse) estrogens. It helps relieve menopausal symptoms by replacing the estrogen that the ovaries no longer produce. It is a good alternative to hormone replacement therapy taken by mouth, especially in women who only have vaginal menopausal symptoms. It should be noted that a significant amount of Premarin Vaginal Cream is absorbed into the bloodstream, and many of the risks associated with oral hormone replacement therapy are expected to occur with Premarin Vaginal Cream as well.
