What is vaginal dryness?

The walls of the vagina are coated in a layer of moisture, which reduce friction during sexual intercourse and keeps the vagina lubricated. These walls can thin out when women age and the hormone production change.

Vaginal dryness is a common symptom for many women and is often, but not always, linked to menopause and hormonal disruption.

Other reasons for experiencing this can include:

  • Breastfeeding or childbirth
  • Medications or treatments like chemotherapy
  • Medical conditions like diabetes or Sjögren’s syndrome
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Surgical removal of the ovaries
  • Severe stress
  • Rigorous exercise

Symptoms of vaginal dryness can vary and severeness varies too but there are several different treatment options available – many of which are simpler than you might think.

Itchiness, burning and pain during intercourse as result of vaginal dryness can be treated.

No female body is exactly the same, which means that symptoms of vaginal dryness – and the level of severeness – differ between women. Some can suffer from itchiness, stinging and burning sensations, sometimes whilst urinating. Others can experience pain during intercourse, find that the intimate area is sore and get reoccurring urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Depending on what's causing your vaginal dryness and what type of symptoms you have, treatment options can vary. Common treatment options include: 

  • Clinically proven vaginal gel
  • Vaginal gel
  • Vaginal cream
  • Local estrogen
  • Vaginal pessaries
  • Health supplements

Only use products adapted to the vaginal area.

The vagina and the surrounding area is sensitive and should be treated with care. First off, you should not use just anything in an attempt to increase lubrication. The most common way of relieving your vaginal dryness is to try a moisturizer or cream. Many different options are available over-the-counter without a prescription. Nowadays there is also a clinically proven vaginal gel available over-the-counter, VagiVital Active Gel.

In a clinical study carried out by professors within gynecology at several of the university hospitals in Sweden, 79% of the patients experienced an improvement in the symptoms creating the most discomfort. VagiVital's gel is classed as an active gel, due to the effects having been clinically proven to do more than just moisturise. The following effects have been documented: 

  • Relieved symptoms of vaginal dryness (itching, irritation, burning, pain during intercourse and whilst urinating)
  • Relieved symptoms connected to sports incontinence
  • Improved vaginal pH and number of cells in the outer surface of the vaginal mucous membrane

Nowadays both milder and more severe symptoms of vaginal dryness can be treated with non-hormonal options.
