Hello

Dr Owen :

There are a few things you will need to do...

Dr Owen :

Since you are 69 - your vaginal area is Atrophic - so you will need to do the following things.

Dr Owen :

1. You will need to use VAginal Estrogen such as Estrace, or VAgifem - and use this two to three times per week in the vagina

Dr Owen :

2. You should also use vaginal dilators to open up the vagina (dilating it) - do this daily and then using the dilators increasing in size as you can - but you will also need to use a Lubricant with this.

Dr Owen :

3. So, with the vaginal dilators you would use a VAginal dilator such as one called Astroglide - and when you have sex too - you should use a lubricant too.

Dr Owen :

i wish you well
