Our expert says:
It seems that you have developed an abnormal sense of smell. You are not allergic to your husband's body fluids. The pain with sex is probably related to vaginal dryness, common in the menopause. It can be helped by using oestrogen cream. Semen does have a partcular smell, which many women find quite pungent. This is, however, normal. Also remember that after the menopause, libido tends to drop, contributing to the reluctance to have sex.
