How to Have Great Sex/Intercourse & Menopausel Symptoms

Question
Hello:

I'm not sure whether or not you can answer my question, but I wanted to ask you nevertheless.

If a man's wife is using an estrogen cream for menopausal symptoms and uses estrogen inside of her vagina, what effect will the estrogen have and the man's genitalia (penis) if it comes in contact with the estrogen cream?

I thank you for your reply.

Answer
Hi, Kenneth...

You're right -- I'm a PhD type, not an OB/Gyn type, however...

I seriously doubt that you could get enough cream on yourself to matter.  I presume she's putting it on at some time other than when you're about to have intercourse, but even IF she were putting it inside right then, I suspect that you'd have to be having almost daily intercourse (and contact with the cream) to make any difference.

And, then there's the question of the amount and strength of the cream as it affects men.

I don't think this is a big deal, BUT -- are you sensing some change in yourself?  If no, then forget about it.  If yes, then you're probably going to have to discuss it with an MD.

Hope this helps and thanks for writing,

Bob

Great sex results from the overall approach you take with women. Great sex starts way before the bedroom. Most men are primarily interested in their own pleasure -- I specialize in ways of turning a so-so sexual experience into an extraordinary one not only with techniques but also by modifying/altering the man's approach to playing sexually with a woman.

Experience

Author of: Squirms, Screams and Squirts: Going from Great Sex to Extraordinary Sex I do a two-hour demo/workshop called "How to Pleasure a Woman." It covers mental approach, oral sex, fingering techniques, vibrators and erotic shaving.
