For many women, vaginal dryness is a common problem that affects and interferes with their day-to-day lives. Vaginal dryness can occur at any age. Women may experience dryness during the menopause, times of stress or as a side effect of certain medications and medical treatments. The effects of vaginal dryness vary from woman to woman, ranging from minor discomfort to painful sexual intercourse. Regardless of the level of discomfort, vaginal dryness can impact your daily life.
The main cause of these conditions is a decrease in the production of the hormone oestrogen. When oestrogen levels drop, blood flow to the vaginal walls and natural secretions decrease, causing the vaginal walls to become thinner, less elastic and more fragile. Vaginal dryness is primarily experienced during the menopause. Unfortunately most post-menopausal women suffering from vaginal dryness, feel uncomfortable discussing their symptoms with their doctor and suffer in silence.
