INTIMATE DRYNESS Definition, symptoms and treatment

Intimate Dryness and Itching: do you suffer from vaginal dryness?

One woman in six suffers from vaginal dryness. It mainly affects menopausal and post-menopausal women and women who are pregnant or have recently given birth. But it can also affect women using hormonal contraception or who have been receiving strong medication or intensive medical treatment (such as for acne, depression or cancer). Vaginal dryness is characterized by a shortage of lubrication in the vagina. Vaginal lubrication is maintained by estrogen. When estrogen levels drop, vaginal lubrication is less abundant, or in others words vaginal dryness occurs. This is why it is an unavoidable phenomenon in menopausal and post-menopausal women.
Several factors can cause vaginal dryness:
– the ovaries ceasing to produce female hormones (such as estrogen and progesterone) during menopause;
– fluctuations in the menstrual cycle;
– smoking;
– stress;

– breastfeeding.
Vaginal dryness can also be caused the mucous membranes becoming more fragile because of inappropriate local hygiene.
