severe itch of vagina + painful intercourse

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi

I am 62. Few months ago it all started with itchy vagina plus incredibly painful intercourse. Did all tests, all ok, no bacteria, no yeast etc. Did anyone of you experience similar problems? Please share what you did to help yourself as I am "loosing" my mind slowly. It is really bad at the moment and nothing seems to help.

Thanks, Grace

    Had pain with intercourse badly. Starting retrace cream twice a week and it worked. Also started bioidentical hRT for other symptoms now don’t need estrace cream.  My vagina is  so much better. Also use astroglide before sex and all is great.

    I experienced the exact same thing! From what I've read I think it has something to do with vaginal dryness.

    Hello Grace you could be low on estrogen, which will cause dryness and irritation. Make an appointment with your doctor and maybe get referral to gynae. You can get cream prescribed or if you don't want to go down hormone route you can buy something called Reopens that helps with moisture and itching. Good luck.
