A question of intimacy...

How is your SEX LIFE?
Mine is TERRIBLE!!! Excruciating Pain
, even with lubricant. I saw my GYN on Friday and we discussed some options, Pros and Cons. She asked if I had talked with Onc about this. My Onc has told me to go live my life and see my PCP for general health issues. I was HER2+ only and ended Herceptin last June.
After weighing the risk and considering QUALITY OF LIFE, I decided to try the vaginal estrogen cream, low dose for a week or 2. GYN will be calling Con to discuss and I see ONC in 3 weeks.
I have been reading about HRT and as far as I can tell, estrogen is generally OK if there is no uterus present. I have mine.
Are any of you using HRT, or ANYTHING else that helps with this sort of pain?
Thanks for your help.
Like Jerry said, What a long, strange trip it's been...
