@FindingOptimism so happy to hear its working for you. I tried scaling back when my dryness and atrophy improved but they seem to creep back up after my monthly Lupron injection. So I started back up with the suppository every 4-5 days. Along with using the vaginal balm daily for my vulva.
On the side of the box there is a routine checkbox with seven days on it, this is a way for you to keep track of when you use it.When I used it for the first time, 3 months was perfect for me but then my Lupron dosage changed to monthly due to a shortage (COVID 19).
As for lesser formulas, I read on the site that the formula Im taking shouldn't change, I believe its the Silk formula. I did send an email asking about how long should one initially use the product, she stated that three consistent months of using the suppository should really be enough, however some patients may need to use it longer depending on the severity of the atrophy. Since most of us are on our hormonal therapy for an extended period of time you should use as needed.
Also ladies, insert the suppository when lying on your back flat with a pillow below your lower back to elevate your pelvic. This ensures the suppository is inserted all of the way and lowers the risk of the product leaking out. I had the most success inserting the suppository when it was very solid. I placed it in the fridge for storage.
So I would say start with 3 months then see from there how you feel! There is a 3 month subscription option.
I just refilled and here is the message form the website about frequency and other supplements;
Please take sea buckthorn oil (omega-7), vitamin D, vitamin K2 (100 µg/day), calcium (1 g), and omega-3 supplements (either fish oil or flaxseed oil) daily to help NeuEve work better.
NeuEve will work right way if you have just begun to feel vaginal dryness. If you have experienced dryness for more than a year, atrophy has occurred. NeuEve can reverse it, but it may take 1-4 months before recovering from painful intercourse. Before full recovery, if you feel not enough lubrication with NeuEve alone, you can use a regular lubricant during intercourse to ease the dryness, like women who use night cream for wrinkles may also use day cream.
If you are a loving husband or boyfriend, you need to know NeuEve works slowly. Please be patient. Please urinate after intimacy to prevent UTI. After using NeuEve for a while, you will feel like a young woman.
To prevent honeymoon bladder (UTI), we recommend you take daily d-mannose supplements.
Sea buckthorn oil has Omega-7, which is an essential fatty-acid that is a key building block of skin, hair and nails. The human body is incapable of making Omega-7, therefore it must be supplemented by diet.
