There is a new product on the market called Imvexxy, which was developed to treat the dryness that post-menopausal women develop. Although the medication, estradiol, is not new, the delivery system is. Instead of a cream or tablet, this is a vaginal gel cap. It comes in the standard dose (10 mcg), and a lower dose (4mcg), giving women more options to treat this very common condition.
A tablet is inserted twice a week. What is different about Imvexxy is you can insert the gel caps whenever you want, as opposed to the creams which can be messy and preferably inserted at night. It avoids an applicator, which many patients have complained about with the Yuvafem. And studies show very few or even no side effects which is nice. And it comes in lower doses, for patients who would prefer to use as little estrogen as possible.
What I like most about Imvexxy is knowing that there are companies out there looking for new and improved ways to treat post-menopausal issues. No one treatment is right for everyone, so it is nice to have a few more options.
