Vaginal Dryness
Are you a woman struggling with vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness is a common issue that can affect women at different stages of their reproductive years. It can cause discomfort and pain during activities like sex, urination, sitting, and exercising. Normally, the vagina stays lubricated with fluid, which helps maintain its thickness and elasticity. However, when the tissues become dry, it can lead to a lack of natural moisture and result in discomfort during sexual activities. There are various factors that can contribute to vaginal dryness. These include menopause (GSM), breastfeeding, diabetes, certain medications (such as birth control pills), chemotherapy, and inadequate sexual arousal. These factors can disrupt the natural lubrication of the vagina and lead to dryness. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, you may notice symptoms such as soreness in the vulva, a burning sensation, itching, frequent urination, recurring urinary tract infections (UTIs), or bleeding after sexual intercourse. These symptoms can have a significant impact on your daily life, including your sexual health and relationships.

Vaginal dryness happens when there is a decrease in estrogen levels as estrogen helps maintain lubrication of the vaginal tissues. Reduced estrogen levels can also happen during menopause, perimenopause (GSM), after childbirth, as a side effect of certain medications, or due to conditions that affect hormone levels.
