Hello;

 

Thank you for writing in today. Based on your information, I would have to recommend an evaluation. I realize that no one wants the "go to the provider" response, but sometimes it is necessary. I will explain. At this point, this could be related to a number of different problems. First of all, as women age, there is a loss of estrogen. Estrogen is helpful in maintaining the normal vaginal tissue and secretions. Therefore, with age and as estrogen levels decline, vaginal tissue can atrophy and sex can become painful. If this is the case, there are some options for treatment, such as topical estrogens. Now, there is additional concern. The bleeding may be a symptom of infection or even something more serious, such as abnormal cervical changes or endometrial lining disorders. Since your mate is unable to enter all the way, bladder or uterine prolapse is a possibility. There are actually several possibilities, but these are just a few. In addition, since you are diabetic and have not been able to take your medications routinely over the last few months, this could cause an increased risk of infection. At this point, I would definitely recommend a gynecological evaluation. Since you do not have any insurance, I would recommend contacting your county health department. Most counties offer some type of free or discount women's health services. If your county does not offer services, they may be able to refer you to some available resources. Also, if you would like, I could try to see if I can find some available resources for this free or discount care in your area. If so, please let me know your general area. I hope this helps. Lisa

Thank you for the imformation thats helps alot i"m doing my best with my state medcal and hope to here from them soon . So that the doctor can get the help i need i the other area's that i having prolems with so again Thank you Smile
You are very welcome. In the meantime, while wating to hear about state medical, I would still recommend checking on Women's Health Services in your area. If there is a Planned Parenthood or other clinic, you may be able to get seen soon and for no money or a small fee ($10-20). Take care. Lisa
