4 most common reasons of vaginal dryness


Vaginal Dryness sounds like a scary diagnosis that makes a lot of women stressed and worried. But if we have a look into female’s physiology, we’ll see that most often there is no reason to worry, sometimes reduced lubrication is a normal reaction of female body. What are the cases when this problem deserves attention? Let’s see..

Normally, the walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid that keeps the lining of your vagina healthy, thick, and elastic. The main regulator that tells the body to produce the lubrication is the hormone estrogen. A drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available. It can happen at any age from a number of different causes.

  1. Estrogen levels can also drop because of Childbirth and breastfeeding. This is the most common and absolutely normal case, so if you feel the difference in your lubrication level after giving a birth, don’t be stressed. The whole process of childbirth and breastfeeding is regulated by hormones and your body needs some time to go through hormone levels fluctuations and adjust them back to normal. Meanwhile, it is completely normal to start using lubricants for some extra help, just make sure the products you use are safe and organic.
  2. Second most common reason is simply the lack of foreplay before sex. See, unlike men, women’s body needs more time to catch the mood and prepare for sex, so there is a time lag between the moment when you get aroused and the moment when your body reacts and provides enough lubrication for enjoyable sex. Usually we don’t notice this in the very beginning of a new relationship simply because when going out on a date woman subconsciously thinks more about intimacy therefore the body is always prepared for a quick start, while being in a long relationship the partner becomes a part of every day’s life and sex thoughts are triggered less often. It is also a completely normal process and the easy way to improve your sex experience is to give it more time - extend the foreplay or slowly start with intimate talks and flirting. But if you want a passionate start of your night, just use some lube to help you begin.
  3. Vaginal dryness is also a common symptom of menopause -- and close to one out of every three women deals with it while going through "the change."
  4. Vaginal dryness can also be an indicator of some more serious health problems or a consequence of surgeries. If this is the case, it is highly recommended to ask for an advice of medical professional.
