What is vaginal dryness?

“If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, itching, burning or feeling of dryness in your vaginal area, you may well be experiencing vaginal dryness.

Around 17% of women experienced additional dryness and that number soars to over 90% for postmenopausal women.”

If you’re in discomfort, give yourself a break and get support. Whether it’s visiting your gynecologist, trying a vaginal moisturiser or switching up your intimate care routine.

Why do we experience vaginal dryness and what are the causes?

“Estrogen is responsible for keeping your vagina moist and keeping it lubricated. When we see a drop in estrogen levels, which can happen for a number of reasons throughout our lives, then we may well start to experience itching, dryness, pain and discomfort in the vaginal area”

Next time you feel that tell-tale feeling of dryness, come back to this handy pocket guide.

How can we prevent and treat vaginal dryness?
