Re: Pain during sex????
Oh yes, but I didn't have the problem in peri. It occurred after my periods stopped. Generallly speaking, when estrogen levels fall, thinning of the vaginal tissues occurs. This can cause dryness & pain, and definetly pain during intercourse.
You may simply be at the early stages, so try some lubricant to see it that helps.
Also, if you haven't had your doctor check things out, that might be a good starting point. Yeast infections, BV, and number of things could cause the pain also.
Lots of women go through vaginal dryness, vaginal atrophy, etc during "the Change" so you aren't alone, by any means.
