On Tuesday, November 10th, NPWH CEO, Gay Johnson provided a statement during the FDA scientific workshop on the labeling for low-dose vaginal estrogen used to treat vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) due to menopause. Ms. Johnson stressed the importance of updating the labeling and package inserts for low-dose vaginal estrogen products. The packaging overstates the potential risks and underreports the potential benefits of low-dose vaginal estrogen. The current labeling discourages clinicians from prescribing and women from using the most effective treatment for VVA, a common, progressive, painful condition. Clarifying the package label to enhance understanding of risks and benefits of low-dose vaginal estrogen will lead to improved health and well being of menopausal women.
