    Thank you for getting the conversation started. Like a lot of diabetes related stuff, it helps to know one isn’t the only one suffering silently.

    My Dr told me about the dyspareunia at a regular pelvic exam. Apparently if you “don’t use it, you lose it” works for vaginal tissue too. Having Fibromyalgia also makes getting lucky
    something lower on our list of daily activities, which is
    unfortunate because the endorphins released by orgasm
    help the Fibro pain. But memory is short and it’s a case of
    “why don’t we do that more often?”, after the pain stops and we
    are basking in the afterglow. But we get on the pain cycle
    treadmill of little sleep and forget how great sex is because
    our brains are caught up in that. So Dr prescribed Premarin
    cream once a week, which is icky, sticky and gross and
    does not want us to have sex!
    I am post menopause and on a light antidepressant but have great blood pressure. My A1C is 5.7, so all is good in that area, have more lows than I would like, but life gets crazy.
    Thanks for opening up this conversation. Mary!
