I had early postmenopausal breast cancer just requiring surgery and chose not to take any hormonal treatments for painful intercourse. I have tried so many unsuccessful topical treatments. Then without any genetic warnings I had stage 3c ovarian cancer. I had surgery followed by 5 months (18 treatments) of chemotherapy. As I have been getting back into living again painful intercourse once again was an issue.
I had the opportunity to use a botanical topical drug derived from green tea that was very beneficial to me. It has finally enabled me to" get back into my life" with my husband. Two well known women gynecologists, from NYU are now scientifically testing this drug in a clinical trial so I am sharing the link below.
My husband continues to be my best friend and our relationship has only grown closer as we have faced life's trials and joys together.
I hope that this information might be helpful to other "thrivers" like myself!
