I am 57 years old. All through my adult life, I have had a good, normal sexual experience. Through the loss of a partner, I abstained for 6 years. I didn't know anything was wrong in there. Now I am attempting to begin a new relationship, and the first time I attempted intercourse, it was so painful that I had to stop. Talk about embarrassing, well, I just went out and purchased some replens vaginal moisturizer, and haven't tried it yet. I am hoping that it will solve my problem, but thought that perhaps I could draw some knowledge from someone else's experiences. Is replens good? Is there something better? Will it work? I am not ready to forget about sex yet. Help..... Answered by Refugio Cravatta 1 year ago.
Moisturizer can help. If it's not sufficient, you could try some vaginal estrogen cream, or something like the Estring--an insert that releases small amounts of estrogen continually. But it's such a small amount that it is absorbed and used by the many estrogen receptors right in the vaginal area. So the rest of your body is not exposed to the estrogen, in case you're worried about risks of estrogen after menopause. Another thing to keep in mind: after menopause, there's a 'use it or lose it' thing going on--the area tends to atrophy, but with use, it gets more blood flow and stays in better condition. So while it might be difficult now, if you try these techniques, then start having sex regularly, things will likely get better and stay better, as long as you keep having sex 2-3 days/week.

At our age this is quite normal, especially after not having sex for quite some time. If you use the Replens ( or one of the other liquids like any of the KY or Silk products - and my doctor particularly recommended Astroglide - which comes in liquid or gel form), you will see a definite improvement. You can use it before sex or your partner can put it on for you as part of foreplay. The more you have sex, however, the better your own natural lubricant may work. Don't be afraid to try a number of different products until you find the one that works best for you. You still have so many good years of loving left! Answered by Nicki Cucco 1 year ago.
Hi there, You are right there is no reason why you should be giving up on your sex life just yet. There are a lot of lubricants on the market and it can be fun to introduce them into your love making. As long as you are open conversationally with your partner it should be fun and you will both experience new sensations with lubes. There are flavoured lubes and non flavoured lubes, warming and natural. Check out the site below and I hope it is of some help. Remember, don't just stick with the first product you try if it isn't right just try another. Good luck Answered by Marina Rouhoff 1 year ago.
The effect is different for everyone. Why not give em' a try!? If they don't work, you can always invest in some warming lube or something of the sort. Don't forget about sex and don't give up on it! Answered by Cory Steer 1 year ago.
so u re menopausal. that's when vagina gets dry. they suggest u take hormones at that time - they help for bones not to lose calcium and vagina to stay moist. i am not that old yet and i don't have dry vagins, but my hubby wanted to try one of those lubricants cos his oanis is big and he says i am smtimes too tight for him. anywho first seconds it was glidy but after somehow it became superdry and more painful. somehow this lubricant absorbed all the mositure and vaporized it.

It can be attributed to the decrease in female hormones associated with us after menopause. Use the replens - it should help a lot and make sex fun again. I know it stinks! Answered by Tarra Gagney 1 year ago.
Dryness at our age can be caused by the fact that our bodies less estrogen. Sometimes using herbal remedies like Black Cohosh or Licorice root ( capsules or tea) can be very effective, and less embarrassing. Answered by Nicolette Corpeno 1 year ago.
well, I am much younger but I get the dryness problem sometimes, too. Eating yogurt daily helps as well as making sure to drink LOTS of water, because being dehydrated makes all your body parts dry. Also, stay away from alot of sugar, that seems to make me dry, too. Answered by Florence Catrett 1 year ago.
I would go see your doctor - or just call their nurse, if you can. I say this because of your age. menopause? There are natural treatments as well (Google: holistic natural treatment for vaginal dryness). Hope that helps! Answered by Ann Altvater 1 year ago.
give yourself and him a good lube of Ky lubricant, try penetrating slowly a inch at a time back n forth and eventually he'll be fully in. Answered by Charisse Schlagel 1 year ago.
THERACYL IS DANGEROUS it is just hormone replacement therapy; why don't lawyers sue THERACYL like HRT co.'s?

If you buy prescriptions, like Estring, it's TIGHTLY dosed because WHY? The Women's Health Initiative showed that hormone replacement therapy was dangerous, caused higher rates of heart disease, dimentia, and cancers, and should only be reserved at small doses for short times for women who absolutely needed it. All those lawyers suing because women got cancer from hormone replacement therapy---heads up!!! You should be suing this company too!!! Why does the FDA allow this ancient quackery to be allowed in the midst of modern science and medicine?? Answered by Augustina Eyer 1 year ago.
A great question, one best directed to the TGA though. Probably the old 'natural' line. Natural like arsenic and heroine... Answered by Jodi Conelli 1 year ago.
The Women's Health Initiative showed HRT is dangerous for SOME patients, and HRT is left up to the patient. Before sailing off on a lawsuit mission, make sure that the women you are "protecting" welcome your "protection". Answered by Reginald Thonen 1 year ago.
