    I just saw my gyn last Friday and she suggested a vaginal estrogen cream which is applied with an applicator. She said that it's important to start using it before you get dry because once you do it's hard to reverse it. I've got it waiting at the drug store, just need to do some more research to see if it's safe, etc..

    I would suggest using a lubricant like KY liquid. It's odorless and doesn't seem to cause any allergic reactions for me, and I'm very sensitive.
