i am 33 and 4 years ago I had a partial hysterectomy (kept my ovaries) and for about a year now I have been having really bad side pains and a couple of times sent me to E.R. And it hurts after sex NOT all the time but some of the time. I went to doctor today and all he said was I had dryness and that's it, I don't understand IS THIS EARLY SIGNS OF MENAPUASE OR WHAT?? FEELING KINDA HELPLESS RIGHT NOW
