I suffer, increasingly of late, intensely painful intercourse since menopause, and am not convinced that the symptoms are permanent, I do hope not.
Does anybody have any clues?

  • I would get it checked out incase there's a tumor somewhere. You never know.

I am 48 years old. Part of the problem is mid-life normal female problems. Also it can be caused by an STD, contracted earlier or recently in your life. Hope this helps.

  • Most likely your problm is cervical cancer. If not treated promptly this can be fatal. Acupuncture can provide temporary relief of pain. Also crush some aspirin to powder and add to a douche. AcuannDOM

AcuannDOM-Please stop using my name and stop saying this. GROW UP. I suggest using lubrication to help, and perhaps looking into vaginismus, which can cause painful periods. Best wishesDOM

  • Acuann - this troller likes to imitate others and post under a great number of "names". And to pretend that he/she/it/them actually has some experience in health care makes me LOL. Anyway, perhaps the site moderators can block any further misleading posts. We can encourage them to do this. Ralph

  • Vaginal thinning and tenderness is common in post-menopausal women. You can use low dose bioidentical vaginal estrogen cream, available from compounding pharmacies who can also probably tell you of a physician who will give you a prescription. Try to also get tested for your levels of estrogen, testosterone. (yes, women have a little), and progesterone. These can also be taken in beioidentical creams to maintain body levels.Never take estrogen without progesteroneGet educated.
