    Dryness...

    For the past three years ever since I came off my birth control I’ve had issues with vagina dryness. I’m only 22 (my birthday was yesterday actually) & when me and my fiancé try to be intimate I’m left feeling inadequate because even when I’m very turned on I’m still dry. I’ve been told many things like my depression is the culprit but I’ve been depressed practically my whole life & trust me when I say that NEVER got in the way of my sexual desires. We try lube but I’m very delicate, lube gives me yeast infections it does not matter if it’s proper lube. My GYN doesn’t really show any concern, & when I do have sex it ends up being painful. I wanted to know is there anything I can do to fix this? Or do I just have to deal with it.

    Hi So if you have done enough reading you find you are not alone, and its a very unfortunate that you have it and spoiling your sex life, you can try vitamin B 6 as they say it helps vaginal dryness for most of the month, and for a sexual lubricant try coconut oil its very good and give lots of slip and is good at fighting YI's so perhaps this is what your looking for.

    But also try this link.

    What your find is that its about phytoestrogens which are good for vaginal dryness.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hi Just one more thought you say you have been depressed most of your life, what even as a bay?
    If your on drugs for it this could why you have vaginal dryness, so a change would do you good, you could change over to meditation as a way out of being depressed, and once you get that working you can be weaned off your drugs for depression, and this may help with your vaginal dryness.

    You didn't mention if you're on any meds (some anti-depressants can cause vaginal dryness, notably Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil but there may be others). Do you smoke? That could also be a contributing factor. Doing a lot of sports is another...

    The cause of your pain is obviously your dryness. Have you tried vaginal moisturizers rather than lubes? I'd suggest Replens, the effects last for 3 days. Just a thought.

    Besides that, your gyn should be concerned - you came to her/him with a problem and you want a solution. You don't want to hear that it isn't serious. For you it is! Remind yourself that you are paying the doctor to care for you, not to brush your concerns under the carpet. If you don't get satisfaction from that one, go to another.

    Hope you find a solution!
