I'm 56 and had been married for 29 but it ended in 2005. I recently tried to have sex again and it hurt so bad I couldn't go through with it. It never occured to me that I would have any problem since I never had problems before. I guarantee that it was not because I wasn't wet enough or ready. I've always had a small vaginal opening and both by sons had to be taken via c-section but never had this kind of pain. All my pap test have come back normal. I was so embarrassed! I want to try again - but now I'm scared because it hurt so bad. My Mother is dead and the last time I went to the doctor - they had me see a male doctor and I couldn't talk to him face to face. I never saw him before. HELP!!!
