This is a tough one, Linda; many women go through this, and you're not alone. I know several women (including my oncology nurse) who swear by regular applicaiotns of olive oil; not a whole lot (you're not making salad!), just a bit. You might see if your oncologist would let you use Estring, an internal ring that releases estradiol into your vagina; some think it's OK, and not enough is absorbed into your system to hurt. Also, take a look at this page for more hints. Best of luck to you - PJH
