Causes And Remedies For Vaginal Dryness

Causes And Remedies For Vaginal Dryness

I’m Susan, your trusted hot sex advisor. Doctor Jessica Drummond runs an organization called the Women’s Integrative Health Center, and she and I are going to talk to you about vaginal dryness. Vaginal dryness is annoying especially when you want to be sexually active.

Here is an overview of some of the causes of and remedies for vaginal dryness.

The primary cause of vaginal dryness is low estrogen, or an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone. This is common postpartum, so it’s natural to have low estrogen when you’ve just had a baby. It’s also common in perimenopause and into menopause because after menopause, our primary source of estrogen is the adrenal glands instead of the ovaries. So we have to take great care of our bodies to have optimal estrogen going through perimenopause and into menopause.

It can also be an issue of lack of blood flow. Anything that damages the soft tissue structure of the vulva can contribute to problems with vaginal lubrication because the tissue in itself is not as resilient and plump. The issue for women having unsatisfactory sex is they’re not taking the time to allow the vaginal structures to get enough lubrication, which comes from several different glands around the vulva. Some women might have perfectly normal systemic estrogen levels, but they’re not taking enough time with intercourse to patiently allow the vulva to get ready.

Vaginal secretions change with our cycle, even after menopause. Here is an overview of the glands that provide vaginal lubrication.

There’s the Bartholin’s glands, which are on the bottom part of the vaginal canal. There’s also the Skene’s glands, and more new research shows that on the anterior side, or the top of the cave of the vagina, there is tissue that is very similar to male prostate tissue. There can be some secretions from that region. There’s also saltwater secretions when the vulva and the clitoris is engorged, which, as we’ve talked about previously, is not just that little clitoral glans, but a larger, deeper structure. And finally, you can also have vaginal secretions from the cervix that can contribute to part of the entire vulvar lubrication. If you can’t get enough of your own natural lubrication, you can use high quality organic nut oils.

Doctor Jess has a Three Steps to Natural Hormone Balance webinar where you can learn about your estrogen, progesterone and what it takes to support yourself naturally.

There’s no better way to get vaginal tissue full of blood and resilient than a really good vaginal massage. Inside and outside, it brings all that blood to both your clitoral structure, as well as the other erectile tissue, like your perineal and urethral sponge. That not only gives you extended pleasure from the stimulation, it also gives you more lubrication.
