For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I had a complete hysterectomy when I was 23, I am now 45. I have taken the pills, shots, creams, patches and this is the only thing that actually works for all my needs. I’m so thankful. It’s worth the money!!!”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I’m at the end of my second dose of Femring after having both ovaries removed at 35. When I first went on Femring .1 mg daily it was great. I had a couple day days after initial insertion that I felt edgy emotionally – but after day 4 that leveled off. Felt much better than oral estradiol. However, around day 60 my estrogen levels started to dive and by day 80 I was back into full surgical meno. When I inserted the second ring….same as before. An initial surge of estrodiol but this time the ring started to tank around day 35. I’m on day 85 of the second ring and my meno symptoms are unbearable. For me, this is not a 90 day med. Too bad – for 1-2 months it’s perfect. My insurance won’t allow me to refill until day 90 – and $$$.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “I was placed on Femring to help with my menopausal symptoms without causing harm to my liver. I was diagnosed with a liver disorder and this has ben a blessing for me and relieved all my symptoms. It can be difficult to insert at 1st but no different than a diaphragm. I have no discomfort or pain and cannot tell it is there. The only downside is the cost.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “”My body does not like this ring – it is quite hard, large, and terribly uncomfortable, paid $100 for it, WITH insurance. Estradiol acetate, which is the kind of estradiol provided in this ring, has to pass through the liver, which is an inefficient way for the body to absorb.” In reference to the second reviewer, Femring is a transdermal estrogen and it does not have first pass metabolism through the liver. Only oral estrogens do that. It also is not hard and if placed at the top of a normal vagina (which expands – a hysterectomy cut vagina does not do as well), you won’t know it is there. I have personally used this for over 10 years and have prescribed it to 100s of patients. Over 90% loved it – except for the cost.”

For Postmenopausal Symptoms “Great experience with Femring and it’s the only hormone replacement that works for me. Wishing it was not so expensive.”
