There are a lot of things that could cause a woman to have vaginal dryness. Those include things like menopause, hormones after childbirth, medications, including some birth control meds, and just the body's natural production rate. Not only does vaginal dryness make it uncomfortable to have sex, but also it can make a woman just be uncomfortable all the time. There are things that women can use to help deal with the problem. Some things are used for specific reasons, like lube. Lubricants are used specifically for sex, to make everything easier. However, that won't help in a normal day-to-day basis. That's where vaginal moisturizers come in.
A vaginal moisturizer is generally a cream that a woman can apply topically whenever the dryness becomes uncomfortable. It can also be used to help provide lubrication for sex but doesn't have to be applied at the time of intercourse, a woman could use it several hours ahead of time so that they are ready at any point. Some of the moisturizers are prescriptions, while others are OTC. The prescriptions often have a low-level dose of estrogen in them, to help the body naturally produce more lubrication. However, not everyone wants to go with a medication or other product and may want to go with more natural moisturizer.
Natural Vaginal Moisturizers
One reason that some women may choose to use a more natural option is because the chemicals in some of the moisturizers can irritate health issues and cause problems like yeast infections. One option is to use aloe vera gel. Aloe tends to be very moisturizing. Before anyone uses aloe, they should test it on a less delicate area of the body, like the inside of their elbow, first. That way they can find out if they are going to react badly to the gel or not. It's also important to note that the product needs to be 100% aloe gel, with no other additives. Some pharmacies will carry the gel, but some may only have a gel with additives in it to be used in burns. Another place to find 100% aloe gel would be a health food store.
Many women will, at some point in their life, experience vaginal dryness. It can lead to general discomfort as well as painful sex. There are options out there to help handle the problem so that no woman has to suffer through this painful condition. For more information, contact a business such as Bring On The Magic llc.
