Vaginal dryness can cause itching, burning and soreness. These symptoms tend to make intercourse uncomfortable. To make sex more comfortable, try a personal lubricant. Vagisil Intimate Moisturizer provides safe, immediate relief of vaginal dryness. You can use Vagisil any time you feel you need it, or just before sex. Other body-safe lubricants include Liquid Silk and Sliquid Organics.
To quell vaginal dryness longer, try an insert. Many women find RepHresh works well to restore vaginal moisture. A RepHresh insert lasts up to 3 days to supply you with continuous vaginal moisture.
If menopause is causing vaginal dryness, talk to your doctor. She may prescribe an estrogen cream, ring or pill.
