I was using Earth's Botanical Harvest Vitamin E with Cocoa Butter but they are no longer in production. I have had a hysterectomy due to having cancer 18yrs ago and I started using the Vitamin E suppositories. They worked.

Hello. Thank you for posting.
Vaginal atrophy occurs due to the loss of steroid hormones, and its major symptoms include vaginal dryness, itching, dyspareunia, and bleeding after intercourse.
A number of natural lubricants may help to relieve the symptoms of vaginal atrophy. These include:
Vitamin E suppositories
There are several medications for treating vaginal atrophy. Many of the following are available over the counter:
Water-based, glycerine-free lubricants help reduce discomfort during sex.
Vaginal moisturizers can be applied every 2 to 3 days. Their effect lasts longer than a lubricant.
Topical estrogen cream applied directly inside the vagina relieves symptoms more quickly than if taken orally. It also reduces the bloodstream's exposure to estrogen.
An estrogen ring inserted into the vagina releases estrogen.
Systemic estrogen therapy is available as a skin patch, an implant under the skin, tablets, or a gel applied directly to the skin.
Your doctor can advise you on treatment options if you are unsure.
