Vagina will close after radiation

My radiation oncologist said that 'once a week or so' was fine. I'm a year out from radiation and my exams have been fine. Sex is just like it always was, sometimes even better. I did not have sex during treatment but began about 3 weeks after my last, internal, treatment. It felt a little strange the first time, but only in the beginning, then it was fine. I never had ANY pain with sex or exams. I did have spotting with sex, and still do have a tiny bit, but my gyn/onc said that's 'perfectly normal' due to fragile new scar tissue high up in the vagina. My doctor perscribed vaginal premarin cream which use twice a week. I haven't always had sex every week, or used the dialator every week, but I did try to do it that often in the beginning. Now, I am a bit more lax. The last time I saw my gyn/onc I asked about it since my husband is gone for 3 weeks. He said if I didn't have sex for a month I should use the dialator, insert it to make sure that scar tissue wasn't developing where it shouldn't be. For me, this hasn't been a big deal. My husband says everything feels the same to him and has for me as well. Lately I seem to have better orgasms than ever before. Go figure!

Hugs,
Janie
