good luck at the dr's. right now I've just been put on lidocaine jelly to use when the pain gets too unbearable. and on estrace cream - which i've used before, but it seems to be working better now that I'm off the BC pills. It supplements the estrogen just where you need it, instead of systemically like BC pills. If you're low in estrogen you should ask to give it a try. I only used it for a week, and haven't had to use it since (last 2 weeks). At least I can sit down w/o pain now! Hope everything works out for you.
