It has solved all my dryness and severe pain of trying to have sex since my hysterectomy. 53 is way to young to give up sex!

Need to find a way to keep it up and not keep falling down!

I am 53 and suffer from extreme dryness & burning. Immediately upon doctor inserting ring, I felt the ring and it was very uncomfortable. Next day the pain was worsening, terrible burning, pressure in vagina and frequent and painful urination. Suffered horribly for 5 days, until I took it out.

Comment:
Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse after menopause made me seek a solution. Dryness is totally corrected but intercourse can still be painful because it didn't really help with the lack of elasticity.

Comment:
I tried the the Estring to relieve dryness and vaginal atrophia. I have had a hysterectomy and since i have used a diaphragm before, I thought this would work for me.
