HI I am 56 years old and when I have intercourse my vagina straight away feels like it is burning and gets sore. It then swells up and for at least a week after is swollen, sore and dry. Also at the bottom of my opening (near to my bottom) the skin splits and bleeds. I started to get mild problems a few years ago and have been using ovestin cream and now changed to a suppositories. The doctors did all tests for any infection etc but found none. I have had the herpes virus for about 4 years. I asked to see a gynacolagist but was refused, as the last doctor I saw examined me and said my vagina looked fine for a woman my age. Please help me I don t know what to do I am so depressed about this I feel they think I should just put up with it
