It started a few years ago soon after menopause and has gradually worsened. Intercourse is out of the question and some days it is so painful and irritating I can hardly function. I've treated for yeast infection with OTC like monistat, etc and then it goes away. Then we have intercourse again and soon it is back in vengeance. I need help! I can't believe it is just estrogen problem because the Dr. gave me cream to use which helped for awhile. Then when I would use the cream the burning would get worse so I quit using it. I've seen a GYNC and the tests she took revealed nothing. I hesitate to go to a Dr. because of that. Most of the time it is itchy.Help! I am 56.
Yes it is due to dryness. Anything my gynecologist gave me made it worse too. I finally found virgin coconut oil works great. I put a little in my vagina some inside on my vulva morning and night and I'm fine and relieved finally. It's Natural and has healing agents too. Works great. You can use it to make love too just not with condoms.
