Treatment of vulvovaginal dryness: The benefits of a OTC hormone-free cream vs. an oestrogen-containing cream

07 Oct 2019
PUBLIC HEALTH & WELLBEING THEATRE
Nearly 1 in 2 women in middle age and above have experienced vaginal dryness. Aside from bothersome subjective symptoms – dryness, burning, itching and pain independent of sexual intercourse – the condition can have a huge impact on quality of life. Speaker, Dr Dawn Harper will be sharing her views on scientific findings regarding the non-inferiority of an OTC hormone-free cream vs. a 0.1 % estriol-containing cream in the treatment of vulvovaginal dryness symptoms in postmenopausal women. In a multicentre open-label randomised controlled trial the non-hormonal, moisturising cream showed no statistically significant difference to the estriol-containing cream regarding improvement of subjective symptoms and daily life impairment. Further, more adverse events were related to vaginal estriol than to moisturising cream. Thus, a non-hormonal vaginal moisturising cream significantly improves postmenopausal vulvovaginal atrophy symptoms and may be used as first-line treatment for vulvovaginal atrophy in accordance with the recommendations of the North American Menopause Society
