Hello Ladies ? I'm hoping that one of you lovlies can advise or help me...........After a double mastectomy and removal of both ovaries and tubes, 7 years ago, I went full steam ahead, into a surgical menopause. All the usual hot flushes, insomnia, tears, tantrums and depression followed. I expected some loss of moisture in my lady garden, but not the dry wilderness it has become. Due to health issues, I can't take HRT, but was prescribed Vagifem which hasn't helped. I have not had intercourse with my amazing hubby for almost 5 years, as, to put it bluntly, it's like being jabbed with a red hot poker😔 I have bought a Femmax vaginal dilator kit, which has 4 varying sizes of smooth hard plastic dilators, but having trouble even with the smallest, which is about the size of my middle finger. I've purchased everything from Replens, Vagisil Internal/External gels, Sylk, Yes etc and am now at the next of my tether. Please, please help if you can. I am lucky that I have a caring patient hubby who reassures me and who I find other ways of loving, other than intercourse. I feel desolate and deprived of a loving sex life, as I am starting to even close my mind to the prospect of ever feeling "Normal" again.........Thank you xxxx
