vaginal dryness causes

Dryness is particularly common during the menopause

However, a reduction in the amount of moisture made by the cervix or these glands can be a real problem since it can make the vagina thinner and less elastic, while also causing pain or discomfort during sex.

There can be a number of reasons why this occurs, but one of the most common is a drop in levels of the hormone oestrogen, which often occurs during pregnancy or when a woman is going through the menopause.

In fact, the NHS believes that vaginal dryness affects more than half of 51 to 60 year olds, with roughly a quarter of women aged between 50 and 59 experiencing dryness during intercourse.
