It’s a common scenario. A woman is given a prescription for a local vaginal estrogen, or DHEA, and uses it faithfully but continues to have painful intercourse. In most cases, the product is working just fine and there is another reason for the pain.
In this segment Dr. Streicher discusses:
  • The TOP 3 REASONS women have pain despite using estrogen
  • Why a WRONG DIAGNOSIS might be the problem
  • The importance of treating the VESTIBULE (the opening) of the vagina
  • Why a painful, tight PELVIC FLOOR might be the problem
  • VAGINAL DILATORS- What they are, how they help, when and how to use them.
