Dry Vagina? Fix It!

Dry Vagina? Fix It!

As a woman’s estrogen level drops due to menopause or other causes, one of the most irritating side effects can be vaginal dryness. When your vaginal tissue thins out and loses its natural moisture due to decreased estrogen, women often struggle with itching, burning and painful sexual intercourse. Many vaginal dryness sufferers want to find relief without adding much more estrogen to their system. 

Vaginal Dryness Has a Variety of Causes

The most common reason for an onset of vaginal dryness is peri-menopause or menopause itself, when a woman’s body gradually stops producing estrogen. But women who have not yet reached menopause can also experience a dry vagina, due to causes like:

  • Medicines used to treat various conditions
  • Radiation or chemotherapy
  • Extreme stress or excessive exercise

Sorting Through Treatment Options

If you are noticing a decrease in your vaginal moisture or pain during sex, the first step is to schedule a visit to your gynecologist, who will assess your health and present a variety of options to alleviate your vaginal dryness. There are many options for treating vaginal dryness. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is an option some women choose to deliver additional estrogen to the body. However, many women have concerns about estrogen replacement.
