Q: Can I enjoy intercourse again without expensive prescriptions?

Q: Can I enjoy intercourse again without expensive prescriptions?

by Dr. Barb DePree


You asked. Dr. Barb answered.You say you’re hoping to enjoy intercourse again after a five-year hiatus, but that you experienced some discomfort with your last gynecological exam. The prescriptions offered to you (which I assume were localized estrogen) are not in your budget, so you’re wondering about other options.

A vaginal moisturizer, used regularly, can help you regain some tissue elasticity. Any of the moisturizers we offer might be an option for you; they’re intended to be used regularly, from daily to several times a week.

Along with thinner and fragile tissues, in menopause, without estrogen and without sexual activity, the vagina will become more narrow and shortened. You may need the gentle stretching of dilators to help restore vaginal capacity.

I’m hopeful that, with some effort and regular attention, you can restore vaginal health to resume pleasurable intercourse!
