Had a hysterectomy 11 years ago and when I have sexual intecourse there is bleeding?

For the past 9 years my sex life has been inactive. Just met a wonderful man, but when we do have sex I have bleeding for at least 2 days. We do use lubricants and he is a gentle lover and although I am 60 I do not consider myself dead. Has anyone else suffered with this problem and/or what can I do?

  • Talk with your gyn. Maybe try a vaginal moisturizer in addition to the lube. It is probably your tissues getting thinner. If you can, maybe an estrogen vaginal cream would help.
