The most common treatment for vaginal dryness due to low estrogen levels is topical estrogen therapy.
These replace some of the hormone your body is no longer making.
That helps relieve vaginal symptoms, but it doesn’t put as much estrogen in your bloodstream as the hormone therapy you take in pills.
Why am I dry down there all of a sudden?
Vaginal dryness can have physical or psychological causes. Vaginal lubrication is often closely tied to levels of the hormone estrogen, which changes at various life stages. Medications (including hormonal birth control) may cause vaginal dryness.
What foods increase female lubrication?
A diet high in fatty acids may aid in producing additional vaginal lubrication. Raw pumpkin, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and fish (especially salmon, mackerel and tuna) are great choices that are high in fatty acids. Vitamin A and B supplements and beta-carotene also have high levels of omega 3 fatty acids.
Is coconut oil good for vaginal dryness?
Coconut oil is a popular natural option for relieving vaginal dryness. Some studies suggest that coconut oil is safe to use on the skin, and it is an effective moisturizer. Many people use vaginal moisturizers or lubricants to help ease vaginal discomfort and to make intercourse more comfortable.
