Estrogen Safety Acceptable For Breast Cancer Patients

When Jane asked me to write a blog for Soul Source I knew right away I had the perfect one for her subscribers. So many of you are having challenges due to treatment for breast cancer and have found that without estrogen, vaginal dryness and narrowing of the vagina is an all too familiar problem.   As a result of having virtually no estrogen, women with breast cancer often suffer from the symptoms of menopause and one of the worst is vaginal dryness, thinning of the vaginal and bladder tissues called atrophic vaginitis or more recently Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause (GSM). ...
