Vaginal ring

This is a bit different to the other vaginal treatments listed. A soft silicon ring is inserted into the vagina either by yourself or by a healthcare professional and it can stay there for 90 days (or be removed and replaced for sex if preferred).

It releases a steady dose of the hormone estradiol (a type of oestrogen) and is called an Estring. This method has the advantage of there being no daily or weekly application and it doesn’t have the residue or discharge issues that the other types sometimes do.
