The ABCs of Vaginal Dryness

A) Ask about the facts: What is vaginal dryness?

When a woman is sexually aroused, there is an increase of blood flowing to her reproductive organs, resulting in stimulating the production of lubricating vaginal fluid. Hormonal changes in a woman’s body, like those that occur during menopause, pregnancy, after childbirth or breast-feeding can disrupt this process. This results in vaginal dryness.

Though vaginal dryness can occur at any age, it is a common issue for women during and after menopause. This normal and natural transition in a woman’s life usually happens between ages 45 – 55. One of the effects of menopause is a decline in estrogen that can cause thinning and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Many women can find dealing with the physical and emotional changes that occur with menopause difficult and even frustrating or isolating.

B) Be aware that there are solutions

Even though adjusting to menopause can be hard, know that you are not alone! There are more options available for women to help ease vaginal dryness so they can enjoy intimate moments instead of cringe at them.

  1. Yes, this does happen when you get older. My gynaecologist gave me a lubricant to use the next time I was due for an examination in order to make it easier on both of us and it did help a lot.
