As we’ve seen in earlier articles, having a vagina comes with plenty of benefits, like having multiple orgasms. But, oh, dear! It also comes with endless struggles. Today we’ll be discussing Vaginal Dryness because it’s a very common issue that women have at some point in their lives.
But despite it being such a common problem, most women don’t seek help in fear of being shamed by their doctor or friends.
Fear not! Because Nina Lessi is here to break it down
Is Vaginal Dryness Normal, or Should I Hide in a Cave?
Say it with me: “Vaginal Dryness is Common!” A lot of women are struggling with it every day. But it’s also not right. Your lady bits should not be dry on the inside because your vagina needs moisture to function properly. In fact, when you experience vaginal dryness, your body will start sending signs to tell you that something is wrong.
What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness?
If your flower is dry, you’ll probably feel itching inside or around your vagina. You might also experience pain, soreness or discomfort during sex or when using tampons. And you are more likely to get a peeing infection (aka. urinary tract infection).
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
First things first, you might be dehydrated. Meaning you don’t drink enough water every day.
Secondly, like many other functions in our bodies, vaginal dryness can be a result of hormonal changes. So anything from menopause, breastfeeding, hormonal medication, contraceptives or womb surgery (hysterectomy) might cause vaginal dryness.
Another very common reason for vaginal dryness could be coming from the type of soap you use around or in your vagina. This can be anything from the detergent you use for your underwear to the soap you use to shower.
Ps. Keep in mind that soap should NEVER enter your vaginal canal, and vaginal douches have been reported to be more harmful than beneficial. As a general rule, only use clear water inside your vagina, and only use soap on the outer parts.
How to Treat Vaginal Dryness?
Start off by drinking a minimum of 2Litres of water per day, and stop using perfumed soaps on your underwear or anywhere close to your vagina. If you’re still experiencing dryness, you should contact a medical professional to ensure that what you’re experiencing is, in fact, vaginal dryness.
Your doctor will most likely prescribe a vaginal moisturiser, which typically comes in the form of a tube. You’ll then be instructed to squeeze a small amount into your vagina every night.
On a side note, before having sex make sure that you are fully aroused. So take your time building up the excitement to have sex; that way, your body will start to produce lubrication naturally. If you notice that you’re still dry, you should use a Water-Based Lube.
And that’s it really! Thank you for reading another one of Nina’s Notes
