Sex is painful
My partner have been together for 12 years. When we first met, our love life was fantastic. She was very sexually active and was very skilled and multi-orgasmic lover. At the time, she was 48 and I was 38 and we made love like 6 to 10 times a week. She was on HRT's since her early 30's and about 1.5 years ago she went off them. Since then, intercourse is uncomfortable for her. She gets UTI's all the time when we have intercourse and has seen several different doc's. Lubrications do not appear to comfort the pain and dryness. It is hard to not be down about this because we were evenly matched in the bedroom and now she has no desire. I still have a high sex drive and this situation is a sore spot (no pun intended) between us because I still want to make love to her and she is no longer interested in making love because it is painful. When we do try, I can tell she is enduring pain and I stop as I cannot enjoy it when she is wincing.
Is there anything that can relieve this pain and dryness she is having? I seen somewhere about natural HRT's that will help with menopausal issues. She stopped the original HRT's because of cancer concerns for being on them for 30 years.
