Question for Betty.

I am 52 year old virgin, menopausal, recently had sex with my partner and felt pain.  Please guide me.

Betty's Answer.
Painful intercourse may be experienced your first intercourse, with mucousal changes with menopause, or with lack of lubrication and foreplay.  You may want to see your health care provider, or make an appointment with the SHCC for an evaluation.  Treatments available include topical estrogen cream, progressive dilation of the introitus, and adequate lubrication. Please seek help for this treatable condition.
