My husband & I have been married for 35 years. I'm 56, he is 58. I am so frightened to have intercourse, we haven't had any intercourse since I was 50. Mind you, I take care of my husband's needs, I'm starting to feel as though I need to have a release, climax. I have heard w/age, women's skin gets very thin and I am scared of ripping myself. My husband can be gentle with me, anymore I'm at a loss. I'd LOVE to be able to resume our once great sex life., we live in a rural area & the closest dr. & hospital is over 50 miles away. Any suggestions, the NP told me my uterus was tipped & my cervix was atrophy or something like that. Maybe I should of posted to a dr. I.D.K. losi ng my mind!!
See if your nurse practitioner will prescribe Premarin for you. It can improve your vaginal tone a whole lot. You're really too young for vaginal atrophy. If you really can't stand the idea of seeing a NP about this, try Wild Yam Cream. Basically, you need something hormonal in your vagina. You don't need to go onto estrogen pills, but some estrogenic cream will help a lot. Then, try a glass of wine.
THANK YOU ANNIE, I will ask her to RX that 4 me, she did say I was atrophy last year & I'm alone, as far as an older woman I am able to talk to. My Mom passed in 2006, since Mom passed, I feel alone when it comes to asking questions about sex. My NP said Premarin was expensive, I will check into Wild yam cream, probably cheaper. Plus, I was given hormone pills, I feel I don't need them, so I quit taking them ( atrophic ) did I phrase that correctly?
Again, A HUGE THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE! You should of read the other one response I got. I deleted it, give you an idea of the answer?
