Answer

Answer

Both topical and systemic estrogens have been shown to improve the menopausal symptoms of vaginal dryness, superficial dyspareunia, and urinary frequency and urgency. Achievement of these beneficial effects require long-term therapy. Symptoms commonly recur after HT is stopped. [10]
