Ok ladies, it's been exactly 1 year since surgery and unconfirmed diagnosis.

As life goes on I've noticed vaginal dryness. Totally normal side effect of a hysterectomy and menopause. 

So I decided to try out some Replens as recommended by my gyne onc. 
Well, both times I've used it I've started to get weird chunks of cottage cheese looking discharge, brown/dark yellow and some pink tinged discharge. Then day 3 is a full blown yeast infection. Has anyone else had these issues?

If I react this way to Replens, what else can I try?

I've clearly decided that Replens is not for me. If you live in or around Saskatoon and Wat to give it a try, let me know. I've got a Costco sized package up for grabs 😉

    Hello @Ralanda - hoping you have found some answers and some support!

    There are so many products out there - a discussion with the DR, NP or even the pharmacist hopefully can direct you to something that will work. KY can be an option but it may not be right for everyone... and things tend to change over time depending on where you are at....
    I looked back to view  your story again ... are you able to share where you are at now with your diagnosis/treatments and how are you feeling otherwise?
