Answer

Hormones

Hormones are indicated for management of atrophic vaginitis resulting from diminished levels of circulating estrogens. A relative lack of estrogen also predisposes the vagina and vulva to infection.

Estrogen (Premarin)

Estrogen is indicated for the treatment of atrophic vaginitis and atrophic urethritis associated with menopause. It should be reserved for women experiencing vaginal changes secondary to a deficiency of estrogen.
