Here’s a topic for this month ladies – Dry July.
In this case, we’re not referring to abstaining from alcohol… We’re referring to downstairs. A pickle of a situation most of us women face or will face.
We’re talking about vaginal dryness… all ages, all demographics — something of which doesn’t discriminate. Misconception leads us to believe vaginal dryness is only an issue for postmenopausal women – now while 50% of women in this category do suffer from this, recent studies show 17% of women aged 18-50 suffer from vaginal dryness. It’s happened to me on more than one occasion (I’m 30 for reference…) and I can assure any woman reading this who is, or has been, or perhaps has yet to be affected — it isn’t pleasant. It can lead to tearing, bleeding, general discomfort, and ultimately can lead to insecurities. Vaginal dryness isn’t cause for embarrassment, nor should it leave us feeling insecure. It’s natural. It happens to most of us at one stage or another.
There’s a number of reasons vaginal dryness occurs — lack or arousal, medical issues, psychological matters including stress, hygiene products and harsh soaps, chemicals in pools and hot tubs, washing powders… low levels of oestrogen (hello hormones) and one of the biggest causes nowadays — certain medications such as antihistamines and antidepressants, which can dry out mucous membranes, including vaginal tissues. Even the slightest fluctuations in hormone levels, which is so often a side-effect of said medications, may impact blood flow – which causes this vaginal dryness.
