I am 52 yrs. old haven't had a period for about a year and a half no sex drive what so ever and if and when we do have sex I end up with a UTI(urinary track infection) every time another reason I don't like having sex. I also have vaginal dryness. Having menopause sucks big time. I use to like being spontaneous now we need to use lubricants and it's just not worth it anymore I feel bad for my husband. I am not on any hormones I did want to try bio identical hormones did talk to my dr. About it and he just said they were pretty much all the same so I am confused and just not sure. and now my nipples started getting sore about 3 days ago. We ladies have to go through a lot just not fair. Is there something I can take to help get back some of my sex drive and help with dryness? And for the sore nipples. Any help would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
Thank you for the information I will definitely look for the book and look into the Estriol cream and Pro- gest cream and get my hormone levels checked again to see what hormones are missing. Thanks again for your help it means a lot.View Thread
