Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Hello and welcome

I am sorry that your Dr is ignoring this. You are experiencing pain with sex due to lack of estrogen.

Your Dr needs to do blood work to include your thyroid and hormone levels. You may be experiencing early menopause. This is called premature ovarian failure. This can be diagnosed by a simple blood test.

The treatment is hormone replacement. This will help with the pain with intercourse. You may need to consider a new physician.

Best of luck.
