Due to the total hysterectomy and treatment for breast cancer, the vaginal lining skin may become severely atrophied, which can result in vaginal dryness and painful sex.
Estrogen cream or suppository can help relieve vaginal atrophy and ease painful sex. However, hormones have side effects like cancer risk. Many breast cancer survivors are seeking a hormone-free product that is safe
NeuEve is hormone free and is safe.
We have several phases NeuEve products for women of different ages to relieve vaginal atrophy. From mild to strong they are Cream, Silk, Silver, and Gold.
In health women with normal aging, vaginal dryness and atrophy do not start until they reach menopause like 45-55 years old. They can choose an appropriate product based on their age.
However, for women with an early menopause caused by hysterectomy or cancer therapy, the appropriate products to start is the Assorted pack. https://www.neueve.com/products/assorted
The Assorted pack has 4 Silk suppositories, 2 Silvers, and 1 Gold. It also comes with a sample vulva balm cream (about 2-3 weeks of supply if you use it on a daily basis). Use the balm a tiny bit (1/4 dime size) at a time on the exterior vulva. You can achieve a more rapid recovery if you combine the balm and the suppositories.

Please follow the instructions on the box. Within 1 month, you will test all 4 NeuEve formulas, starting from the Silk and the balm cream. By the end, you will find out which formula you like best.
If you like the Gold and do not feel it is too strong, Gold will be the best. If you feel Gold is too strong, Silver will be the right one for you. If Silver is too strong for you, Silk would be the right one. You will figure it out after testing all three phases of the suppositories.
You can subscribe to the formula that you like most for monthly delivery. You can also purchase the NeuEve balm cream if you like the balm cream. One jar lasts about 2-3 months.
Once your vaginal atrophy is managed after using NeuEve, your dryness and painful sex will be relieved.
If your vaginal atrophy is severe and using one pack of the Assorted Formulas does not give you noticeable relief, you can add sea buckthorn oil pills and dilation exercise.
