Has vaginal dryness caused you to shy away from sexual encounters recently?
Your avoidance may be due to normal or unexpected changes in your body.
Those changes can be due to allergy and cold medications, certain antidepressants, douching, or not enough foreplay before sex.
You may have never thought those common occurrences could make changes in your body and sex drive.
You could be suffering Sjögren's syndrome (an autoimmune disorder that attacks cells in the body that produce moisture).
A drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available. It can happen at any age from a number of different causes.
Normally, the walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid. The hormone estrogen helps maintain that fluid and keeps the lining of the vagina healthy, thick, and elastic.
Estrogen levels can also drop because of: Childbirth and breastfeeding,
Radiation or chemotherapy treatment for cancer. Surgical removal of the ovaries, and anti-estrogen medications used to treat uterine fibroids or endometriosis.
Vaginal dryness is a common symptom of menopause - and close to one out of every three women deal with it while going through "the change." It becomes even more common afterward. It also makes the vagina thinner and less elastic. This is called vaginal atrophy. And this can make sex very unpleasant and painful.
No matter what the cause, vaginal dryness can be extremely uncomfortable. It can lead to itching, burning, painful intercourse and low sex drive.
