Vaginal Dryness Info

Vaginal dryness (sometimes referred to as vaginal atrophy or atrophic vaginitis) usually occurs during menopause when oestrogen production drops in women. It occurs due to the thinning of the tissue lining the vagina and also due to decreased lubrication in the woman's vagina. 

Oestrogen is important in maintaining healthy tissues of the vagina and to keep them lubricated and healthy. When hormone levels are optimal, the lining of the vagina will produce a clear, lubricating fluid. This fluid makes sexual intercourse more comfortable and helps decrease vaginal irritation. Thinning or shrinking of the vaginal tissue causes dryness and inflammation.

Vaginal dryness does not only occur in women undergoing menopause. Severe stress, depression, or too rigorous exercise can bring on the symptoms as well (as these conditions also lower oestrogen levels). It may also occur in younger women who have had surgery to remove their ovaries. Some women develop the condition immediately after childbirth or while breastfeeding, where oestrogen levels are lower at these times. The vagina can also become irritated from laundry detergents, certain soaps, lotions, perfumes, or unfit douche bags.

Oestrogen deficiency is usually related to a low level of oestrogen’s precursor, progesterone.  A reduction in oestrogen production typically occurs in women approaching menopause, when ovarian hormone output decreases. After menopause, when the ovaries stop producing progesterone and oestrogen, the body relies on the adrenal glands for continued production of these hormones.  Reduced progesterone output is one outcome of exhausted adrenals, making stress an important contributing factor in hormonal dysregulation.  (As well as being a precursor to oestrogen production in the body, progesterone is also the hormonal precursor to other important hormones including cortisol and testosterone.) 

Another important factor in menopausal vaginal dryness is adrenal and thyroid gland dysfunction. Both are involved in reproductive hormone production and restoring healthy function to these glands is integral to experiencing a healthy menopause.  Kelp is the number one thyroid balancing herb.  Refer to the Adrenal Fatigue section for adrenal support information.

  • Close to life changing.

    star

    Having hit menopause without too many horror stories to tell I was beginning to think I’d escaped almost scot free. That’s about when sex began to get painful, eventually to the point I was extremely reluctant to engage in any affection that might lead to it. I’d decided I was quite happy to give up sex for life if I was never going to experience pain free sex again. Of course I also realised that wasn’t particularly fair on my partner so began researching ways to alleviate vaginal dryness and painful sex. After a trying couple of satisfactory products but still looking for something better I read the reviews for Bonk Lube and decided to get some. It was close to transformational, sex like sex used to be when my body naturally produced a lubricant. Definitely the best, most natural product we’ve tried and I must say we are BOTH very satisfied with this product.
