Vaginal Dryness Q&A

What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness?

Symptoms include:

  • Pain only at sexual entry (penetration)
  • Pain with every penetration, including putting in a tampon
  • Deep pain during thrusting
  • Burning pain or aching pain
  • Throbbing pain, lasting hours after intercourse

What causes vaginal dryness?

Normally, the walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid. However, sometimes this lubrication is not as thick or fluid as it needs to be. It can happen at any age from a number of different causes. The most common cause of vaginal dryness are hormonal changes or menopause. The hormone estrogen helps maintain that fluid and keeps the lining of your vagina healthy, thick, and elastic. A drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available. A blood test and medical evaluation with Balanced Medical Solutions can help determine the underlying culprit. Untreated, this condition can cause painful intercourse and affect your sex life, which would be a shame because there are easy solutions to this common condition. Most women suffer from this condition at some point in their lives, but the good news is that it is treatable and preventable.
