Painful Sex Part 2 | Vaginal Dryness

Because the vagina is covered in a thin layer of mucus that protects it, vaginal dryness can be a source of frustration for many women. This may prevent women from discussing symptoms with their physician or partner; however, the condition is a common occurrence that affects every woman at some point in her life.

Effects of Vaginal Dryness:

Vaginal dryness primarily causes discomfort in the vaginal and pelvic regions. Vaginal dryness can also cause:

  • burning
  • loss of interest in sex
  • pain with sexual intercourse
  • light bleeding following intercourse
  • soreness
  • urinary tract infections (UTIs) that don’t go away or that reoccur
  • vaginal itching or stinging
