Vaginal Estrogen for Asymptomatic Microscopic Hematuria
The specific aim of this protocol is to determine whether vaginal estrogen is an effective treatment for asymptomatic microscopic hematuria in postmenopausal women. The investigators hypothesize that women who use vaginal estrogen for three months will be more likely to have resolution of their asymptomatic microscopic hematuria compared with women who do not use vaginal estrogen.
