A question of intimacy... - Sunday, June 30, 2013 8:50 PM

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...
