What is it?
When life affects your natural lubrication
Glands in our cervix control natural lubrication and when this
process is upset, through hormonal changes or when you are experiencing stress and anxiety, vaginal dryness can be an unwelcome side effect. The itchiness and irritation are often confused with things like cystitis and thrush, but medications for these will not help dryness and can make the situation worse.
Many women first notice vaginal dryness when making love.
Vaginal dryness can make penetration painful and uncomfortable
and if untreated can impact relationships and self-confidence.
Other common times when women suffer from vaginal dryness
are when starting hormone based contraception, when using
tampons, pregnancy and/or breastfeeding and when menopausal.
Some drugs for cancer treatment can also cause this unwanted condition, so dryness can affect any woman at any life stage.
