Women everywhere are suffering in silence. A silent condition is affecting their everyday lives and their most intimate of relationships.

The good news is that you don’t have to suffer in silence any longer! You can take action over the silent condition that inhibits your life. Vaginal dryness is a real condition that you can do something about.

As a condition, vaginal dryness can affect women at any stage of their life. In fact, 22% of us will have experienced the condition during the course of our lifetime – yet only 50% of those women affected will seek treatment for the silent condition.

The Negative Impact of Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness can cause women pain and discomfort, and this can negatively affect a woman’s confidence, self worth and cause intimacy and enjoyment issues in the bedroom.

Women can also have ongoing stress and anxiety as a result of their experiences with vaginal dryness.

Causes of Vaginal Dryness

A variety of contributing factors or issues can cause a woman to develop Vaginal dryness. These can include, hormonal changes, medications, douching, soaps and stress – all which can lead to a chemical imbalance in which the natural moisture of the vagina are reduced.

This chemical imbalance sees the reduction of Estrogen levels within a women’s body causing the vagina environment to become dry. Oestrogen is a female hormone which is essential and well-known for the creation of healthy vaginal tissue and lubrication.

Milestones in a women’s life in which hormone levels are affected also have the potential to contribute to vaginal dryness. Pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause and breastfeeding all have a direct affect on Oestrogen levels and can lead to the condition.

While most of us don’t discuss this very silent and personal condition in public, it is important to know that if you are suffering from the condition there is something you can do about it!

Take Action!

Discuss with your doctor about potential underlying factor contributing to you developing the condition. For example, Estrogen creams when used in women experiencing menopause have been proven to assist with vaginal dryness.

Visit your local chemist and gain advice about specifically targeted vaginal moisturisers such as Vagisil ProHydrate Plus gels that can also assist in preventing vaginal dryness.

Take control of the silent condition that is affecting your life. There is something you can do. Stop suffering in silence and restore your natural moisture.

A note from MoM about sponsored posts:
Every single day companies ask us to share their news with our members. And almost every single one of these companies is willing to pay us a fee to do this. There are lots of costs involved in bringing you everything Mouths of Mums has to offer for free so it is tempting to say yes to everyone. However we never have and never will. Because we value the relationship we have with you, our members, above everything we are very selective about what we will run. We review the content and decide if it is relevant, informative or interesting to some or all of our members. This post is one of those. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

  • Thank you for the very interesting article.


  • I am alone but I’m not suffering. Vaginal dryness isn’t a major problem in the bigger scheme of things


  • strange “article” to see appear here?


  • This is not an article, it is an advertisement!


  • So far I have not had this problem although im surprised that its not been an issue for me. I had to have a hysterectomy a few years back and that included removal of my cervix. I expected to have issues after that but I havent as yet.


  • Never had this problem


  • Seriously I really don’t need Vagisil to post a story on this…your health should be accessed and regularly checked by your GP and that includes Vaginal Dryness. Purchasing a tube of cream may help in some situations BUT SERIOUSLY you very well may have another bigger problem that needs more than a tube of Vagisil.


  • Thank you for this article, it’s very interesting. I’ve had surgery on my cervix 2 or 3 times to reduce discharge that I think may have contributed to this issue. It’s true, it is painful and makes one self conscious. I put it down to age, possible peri-menopause, etc. But think it’s high time I have the awkward talk with my GP.


  • Definitely go to the GP as there is no need for any woman to suffer.


  • Personally I would prefer to go to a women clinic instead going to my Doctor when this was an issue.
