Vaginal Dryness: When and Why It Happens

Vaginal dryness is a common occurrence that many women face at some point in their lifetime.

It’s not uncommon for women to experience vaginal dryness while breastfeeding, as they go through menapause, and as they continue to age.

The main cause culprit behind vaginal dryness is hormonal changes! Your partner can relax a bit, it’s not necessarily that he is doing anything wrong! Reassure him and let him know the facts.

Women’s bodies naturally experience a shift in hormones, in particular, a decrease in the female hormone, estrogen. As our bodies decrease in the production of estrogen, our natural lubrication production is negatively affected, resulting in vaginal dryness. 

The good news is that through science we now have available to us a synthetic lubricant that can easily be applied to either his penis or your vaginal opening to help us ladies stay interested and satisfied sexually.

If you feel more comfortable searching and purchasing a lubricant online, please go to our product review section for recommendations.
