I had a hysterectomy beacuse of severe endometriosis pain. The pain is gone now and thank God for that.

Now I have such bad dryness that it is difficult to have sex and my husband is 73 so he has a little trouble with erections. He is on Cialis for that and I have tried everything I can think of for lubrication and I take premarin cream although it doesn't really help. This doesn't bother me other than that sex is now difficult and now I feel embarrased and nervous. I used to be a rather uninhibited person and this is really a problem. The only solutions anyone has are lubrication and the cream. I don't want sex now because it is too, just too everything! I need help.

It's water-soluble, application is easily incorporated as part of foreplay, and K-Y can be used as much and as often as needed without problem.Best regards,John

  • You may want to get a good omega 3 fish oil and flax oil supplement. This can help with vaginal dryness. You would take this internally, not as a lubricant;). Other things to try include the herbs Chaste Tree, Black Cohosh, Evening primrose oil, ***g Quai. A good B complex like Jarrow's B-Right would help. Lastly vitamin E oil may be helpful. Best wishesDOM
