I'm 51, menopausal (no period), and intercourse has become painful. Lubrication doesn't help. I've been examined by my doc. What to do?

Estrogen? Hormones like Premarin (conjugated estrogens) gel may help to rejuvenate your lower genital tract. However, your extra lubrication would certainly be a good idea, and if you have not tried a different one, do so. And, you should be liberal with it.
