Hi Betty

I have just finished reading an article in the July issue of Next magazine (New Zealand) about sex for the over 50's, and the article mentioned your website. I have been experiencing painful sex for the past 5 years, and so I jumped on to your website looking for a bit of help. I am writing now asking for help because I am getting desperate!

Wife Complains About "Burning" Feeling After Sex

Greetings Dr.Betty and Happy New Year!

My 57 year old wife has lost all desire for sex. She will occasionally gives in but now complains of burning after ejaculation.

Any suggestions as to a cause or remedy?

Dear J,

You wife has gone through menopause which means "men-on-pause." A woman's vaginal lining thins out and there is not sufficient lubrication. There are many other ways to share sexual intimacy besides vaginal fucking which is the procreative model.
