Painful sex, dryness, bleeding!

My LSH was almost 2 years ago, coming up on March 2nd.

I had a great surgery and have had little to no problems since then.

One of the best things that could have happened to me is that I have a great sex drive. Something that was never around before my surgery. I have suffered with dryness for 2 years now, and it's one of those things that I have treated with hormone creams that are messy and don't seem to help, so I have just learned to deal with it with other options. I'm looking into Replense now though.

Recently I have noticed more pain during sex, the same pain I felt before my surgery, one of the big reasons for my surgery. I had a few large Fibroids that were removed, so I thought that was it. I was also told that my Uterus was small, so the top was always getting hit. Another thing that went away with the surgery. So now I'm starting to wonder why it feels like that old pain again. My boyfriend got back from a short business trip yesterday, and like I said, my sex drive is in over drive, so with out sex for 5 days, I was really ready to go. I thought I saw some blood last night, but I was tired and didn't think anything about it. Then this morning after another round, I noticed more blood. I can't even think of what would be bleeding or why?!

The pain isn't a lot, but it's there. Nothing I would run into the doc for, but now bleeding, I was just wondering if anyone else has any insight about this at all.

Thank you,

Painful sex, dryness, bleeding!

Hi I'm sorry you have been dealing with dryness for so long despite using creams. Can you tell us which creams you've tried, and how often you use them? And, are you using any systemic HRT (pills, patches, etc)? It sounds like you are dealing with a bad case of vaginal dryness/atrophy. Bleeding can result from tiny cuts and tears in the vaginal walls that happen because of the pressure of penetration.

I encourage you not to wait any longer to see your DR about this. If untreated, vaginal dryness and atrophy can also lead to urethral atrophy, which causes stress incontinence - not something you'd want to deal with, I'm sure.

Congratulations on maintaining your libido throughout all this... and I hope you get the dryness problem resolved soon.
