Should vagifem be used when engaging in oral sex?
My mammogram, bone density, and a pap smear a year ago were all normal. My only real problems now seem to be diminished interest in sex, vaginal dryness, and a vaginal discharge with a very unpleasant odor when my husband and I do have sex. Intercourse is painful and I have a constant awareness of that part of my body. Between these two vaginal treatments I have stuff running out of me all the time and do not feel sexy at all. And some of this stuff actually burns. I am considering oral hormone therapy just to get away from this constant vaginal stickiness.

I often find myself sharing with patients how little education we, as physicians, get in sexual medicine.
