I would be curious about the estrogen content, too. As part of treatment for breast cancer (diagnosed last December), I had an oophorectomy in June. (no chemo or radiation, though, and I have been unbelievably fortunate from the start - no complaints!) My cancer was estrogen positive, though, so of course no estrogen replacement therapy.
However, my oncologist did say that there are estrogen creams that are available that are okay for ER/
positive cancers. This guy is a research guy all the way, and he went on to say that the levels of estrogen that enter the body through a vaginal cream are not statistically significant.
I haven't asked him for this prescription yet.... but I plan on it if needed!
For now, the coconut oil suggestion from the above post has been very effective! =)
