hi I am a 50year old female who is having trouble with excessive vaginal secretions during intercourse. this is making my partner lose sensation and I am also finding I lose muscle control during this as well. I have been doing kegel excersises and have had a lap assisted vaginal hysterectomy about 3 years ago. My partner keeps telling me there is something wrong down there as he says I become 'loose and juicy'. I have asked my doctor here but she was unable to help, she refered me to a gynea who also was unable to help. is there something wrong with me and is there anything I can do about this?
ps I had the hysterectomy for increasing pain during menstruation. the last time I visited my doctor she did a hormone check for menopause as I have had the occasional hot flush and a couple of night sweats. i do not wish to go on hrt as my mother has had strokes ++ and there is a family history of high blood pressure and heart disease etc. i myself am hypotensive and often suffer from postural hypotension. please let me know if you need any further information.

Brief Answer:
Can be due to hormonal changes.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The increase in the vaginal secretions during the intercourse could be due to a normal hormonal variation that your body is going through during the menopause or a vaginal infection like bacterial vaginosis or yeast infection or vaginitis- inflammation of the vaginal mucosa.
If the secretions are watery in nature with no offensive smell then it is more likely to be due to a hormonal variation.
A direct examination of the area and a vaginal swab culture will help in detecting any inflammation or an infection in the area.
The treatment will then depend on the cause.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
