Lubrication, not irritation
Nearly half of all women aged 40-59 suffer some form of vaginal discomfort and consequently, a loss of self-confidence and compromised love-making. And vaginal dryness isn't restricted to those going through the menopause. Women in their 80's may suffer the same discomforts, and find their lifestyles compromised and restricted.
What is vaginal dryness?
Glands in the cervix normally produce the natural lubricant that keeps the vagina moist. However, certain life stages, including hysterectomy and other gynaecological conditions can affect the production of these lubricants.
Lifestyle issues such as stress, infrequent lovemaking, childbearing and breastfeeding and using tampons can all adversely affect vaginal lubrication. Additionally, health conditions, such as hormonal changes, diabetes, bladder and continence problems, reactions to drug therapies (Tamoxifen, Anastrozole, HRT) and cancer treatments can all contribute to vaginal dryness. Estimates suggest only a quarter of women suffering vaginal dryness seek medical help. Others struggle with unsatisfactory lubes or chemically-or hormonally-based lubricants.
