I was diagnosed with osteoporosis last month after many years of osteopenia. My spine T-score was -2.8. I am 68 years old, 5 foot 7, 130 pounds and in good health.
I did take osteoporosis medication for about 5 years in 1993 when I went into early menopause at 43 years old. In 2016, my spinal T-score was -1.9 and in 2000 it was normal at -0.9. Isn’t this a fast decrease in the last 2 years especially since I exercise regularly?

I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism and started on thyroid 50 mcg for a few months now. I continue to have severe joint pain, generalized numbness and tingling without improvement on the medication that I am taking. What should I be doing differently? Do you have any recommendations?

I'm having painful intercourse despite using vaginal lubricants and hormone therapy. I'm a BRCA2 carrier with a history of ER/PR positive breast cancer. My main problem is pain with increasing vaginal dilation during intercourse. I don't have pain with initial penile insertion or with insertion of a vaginal probe during a pelvic ultrasound. Will pelvic floor stimulation or perhaps the Mona Lisa Touch treatment help painful intercourse?
