Vaginal dryness causes the vagina to thin and become less elastic. This is called vaginal atrophy and it occurs when your body has less estrogen. When this happens, the ovaries stop producing the female hormone estrogen and the levels begin to decrease. One of the early signs of reduced estrogen on the vagina is reduced lubrication during sexual activity.
Vaginal dryness can cause discomfort and at times very painful. Common symptoms of vaginal dryness include itching, burning, and soreness of the vulva area. Fortunately, there are several ways we can take to reduce or eliminate this issue.
One common way to treat vaginal dryness is by visiting the doctor or gynecologist. Though it is important to occasionally take trips to the doctor, a good probiotic helps in reducing the chances of vaginal dryness.
