I am hoping someone, doctor or someone with experiance, could help me answer something. I am a mom and wife, I am 40 years old. Seemed alomost to the day I turned 40 all of the sudden I had a dryness issue sexually, just seems to take a bit longer to get where we need it to be. There has been a couple of times where we rush it a bit, and it hurts afterwards. The other day we had sex and I knew it was going to hurt, we were hurrying before kids got home...and after wards it was sore, and burned on the outside when I pee'ed, it was as if I was peeing on a cut, after 2 days the burning had gone away, and later that night we then tried again, and we couldnt get him inside of me....felt like something was in the way, or maybe to swollen....Is this normal? Has anyone else had to deal with something like this?

The chances are high that using a lube will help :) You may have to try a few before you find the one that works for you.

Accept that your body changes with age.

Your prob right, that is exactly what I was thinking, but was really concerned, the next time we tried and it would not go in.....that really made me nervous....

I really wish I could, however I lost my health insurance last month, and will not be able to get on my husbands till open enrollment in January....that is why I brought something so private here, hoping someone would know something
