A New Look at the Older Vagina

Good reading today from the HuffingtonPost.com ---- and for those of you who may be new to the blog, I have stated several times that Dr. Carr has had me on estriol cream for vaginal dryness/atrophy for several years, it works great, and it's inexpensive. I use it at night at bedtime. A healthy vagina is important for not only sexual health, but also for overall health, fragile tissue that tears easily is more prone to infection, and that can lead to urinary tract infections also. If you are afraid to talk to your doctor about this, or your doctor seems to be blowing you off----it might be time for a new doctor. Your sexual health is important, and you need to be able to speak frankly and openly with your health care provider.
