I'm young, only 26, newly married with a toddler. I was diagnosed with VIN3 and anal cancer in Feb' 12. I have since completed both radiation and chemotherapy (Jul' 12), as well as a vulvectomy back in April 12'.
It's been over 6 months and my husband and I are still unable to have sex. I tear every time. It's not a matter of being to "dry" but rather that it just doesn't fit any longer. They gave me the dilators but they have not helped at all. Emotionally I cannot take it any longer and neither can my relationship. I haven't had a period since July, and I at this point I just don't feel very womanly anymore.
Have you gone through this? What did you do? Are there any sort of "creams" or "gels" that would help or will I need another surgery?
