    What you are experiencing is the vaginal dryness and thinning of the vaginal walls that occurs when your estrogens are decreasing.  Vagifem shouldn't make you bleed and can be very effective at healing the tissues.  Estradiol vaginal cream (Estrace) works exactly the same and might be more soothing if you are very sore...but it is a bit messier.  I would recommend that you use either every night for 2 wks then every other night for the next month or even 2, depending on how good your vagina is feeling.  Then, you can go to using it twice a week to maintain good vaginal health.
