It’s the kind of thing most of us experience, but don’t really want to talk about. But, the reality is if we don’t face vaginal dryness head on, it will continue to make us uncomfortable. Miserable in some cases.
Just what is the cause of it anyway? The answer to that question is pretty loaded. Three days before and after our periods, we experience vaginal dryness. When our hormones are off balance, we experience vaginal dryness. If we’re on medication (sometimes birth control), it can lead to vaginal dryness. Being perimenopausal, or in menopause, can also cause it. And that’s just for starters.
Luckily, in many cases, vaginal dryness is something that can easily be remedied with the help of a few tweaks in our daily regimen. Here are six natural ways to treat your vaginal dryness. If after a couple of weeks lubrication is not restored, make an appointment with your doctor. In the meantime, know that if your vagina is not as lubricated as you would like, you’re not alone. It comes with being a woman.
