Vaginal dryness is when the vagina no longer produces or produces insufficient lubricating fluid. Vaginal dryness can be the result of stress, lifestyle factors (such as drinking or smoking), medication or some contraceptive pills. Fluctuating hormonal levels during menopause or pregnancy are another frequent cause of vaginal dryness.
If you suffer from vaginal dryness, wash intimate areas with a mild cleanser a maximum of twice daily, then apply a soothing ointment. Another option is to use a hydrating vaginal gel.
