Vaginal dryness can be the result of some medicines, menopause, hormonal modification during the pregnancy or the breastfeeding, or mental stress (during the first sexual act for example). An inappropriate intimate feminine hygiene (such as usage of inappropriate soap or lack of hygiene) can also cause a decrease of the quantity of lubricant produced. At last, urinary or genital infections as well as STIs can be responsible of this situation.
Vaginal dryness can be very painful, sexual relations are forced and penetration is difficult. It can even lead to tears of vaginal mucosa and severe irritations.
To avoid this kind of situation, it is useful to know that intimate lubricants are available on the market. They can replace natural lubricant when it is missing. Its main component is often water but can be silicone or sometimes oily raw materials. Lubricants made with water are the best to recommend in case of vaginal dryness because their texture and composition looks like natural lubricant. A moisturizing ingredient as hyaluronic acid is often added (See “Tube so Sexy® from Terpan) and lubricants can allow to recover a normal vaginal hydration.
To conclude, we shouldn’t forget that natural lubrication of the vagina occurs when the woman is aroused which is happening usually lately for women compare to men. It is something important to remember in order to understand vaginal dryness reasons.
