I could be that woman! Except that I am even older, 75, and haven't had intercourse in 9 years. I had had a hysterectomy/bilateral oophorestomy and took ERT, and later Estratest HS for about 17 years until my husband died. I didn't notice any hot flashes when I quit, but my vagina did become dry and itchy, I just used topical drugstore creams for that. But now I have met a man of 78 who says he is interested in sharing a cabin on a cruise. We have kissed, and he says I am sexy (not true!), but I know I need to get ready for this. Will any GYN prescribe hormones to be after so long?
