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?

In brief: 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.

In brief: Estrogen Cream
Vaginal estrogen cream can be very helpful to treat atrophic vaginitis.
This is safe and very often effective.
