In 1995 I had a total hysterectomy with my ovaries removed. Sex was fine for awhile, but about 6 or so years ago I stopped wanting it. I am dry now, and all the lube in the world doesn't help me(even the expensive silicone lube). It still hurts like I'm being reamed out with a tree trunk, and I bleed afterward. I went to a doctor and she looked inside me and said my vagina was atrophied(sp).She prescribed vaginal cream which isn't helping and then she tried vagifem pills. nothing worked. She also prescribed estratest for my total lack of libido, and I've been on it for 8 months now with no help. I was told I could not take HRT because I have too strong a family history of breast cancer. I want to want a sex life again, I always used to have a wonderful uninhibited one. I feel sorry for my partner, and I am at the point where I am ready to give up my marriage so he can have a "normal"life and wife. HELP!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
