Ask the Nurse

I had an endometrial ablation a couple of years ago and my sex life has completely changed. I am now experiencing vaginal dryness and my libido is on zero. I also am experiencing painful intercourse and am having light bleeding after sex. I changed doctors because I wanted a female doctor. My physician gave me a blood test and said I was not in peri-menopause because I am only 47 years old. Can you please tell me how can I get some relief?

It sounds like you are in menopause and need hormone levels FSH and estradiol checked.

There are many treatments for vaginal thinness, dryness and painful intercourse. You should see a menopause specialist who can check your hormone levels and discuss treatment options with you.

All My Best,
