Tanong: I'm already in my late 40's, single, menopause for the past 4 years. Whenever I make love with my current boyfriend, it really hurts and I feel dry. My old friend told me that there could be no secretion inside. What could be the remedy? Is there a supplement that I can take or do I have to resort to injection. I tried putting ez gel but it won’t work. Where can I consult and buy? I'm so desperate.

Doc Gino: Menopausal women experience vaginal dryness due to lack of estrogen--a kind of female hormone--in their body. Hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) is an effective solution to this problem. Because HRT is not without complications, a thorough gynecologic evaluation is essential. I suggest that you seek medical consult to a doctor who specializes in this field.
