Sex and the older woman

Sex and the older woman

Sex hurts so you avoid it. The less sex you have the more painful each episode gets until finally you say, "ENOUGH!" Before you give up entirely, let's discuss potential solutions.

Painful intercourse or painful sex can be experienced by women of all ages. The pain can be inside the vagina or pelvis or even outer labia. It can be deep pain, sharp pain, or a burning sensation. A common cause of dryness is menopause when estrogen levels fall and the vagina loses moisture and elasticity.  

A simple, quick solution could be increasing foreplay and using over-the-counter lubricants could help too. However, sometimes more is needed.  Hormonal creams can be very effective when used over time.  

Vaginal rejuvenation is a new treatment that has been very successful in women with painful sex due to menopause and vaginal dryness. It is a hormone-free approach that is painless and requires no down time. How could one 30-minute procedure change pain to pleasure?
