Brief Answer: Thank you for the answers... Detailed Answer: I am sorry about the delay - I was traveling and it is hard to answer appropriately using my phone only. With regard to your question: First of all, the idea that you have a tipped uterus has probably always been present and is really quite normal. Sometimes it can lead to pain with intercourse, but you reported to me that pain is NOT an issue. What you DID indicate is that vaginal dryness IS an issue. Given your age of 65, this is because you are post-menopausal and your ovaries produce almost no estrogen at all. This leads to vaginal dryness, and in many cases, decrease in sexual function and performance. Here is how something like this is approached: 1. Use of lubricants WITH intercourse - Astroglide is a great product 2. Use of a produce called Replens for daily moisturization of the vagina 3. Consideration of vaginal estrogen - talk to your OB about a prescription If there is concern about your uterus based on previous comments, how it feels during intercourse, or based on concern regarding its position and effect on intercourse, then an ultrasound is a great idea. This could be coordinated with a visit with your OB/GYN to talk about vaginal dryness as well. Please let me know if this helps!
