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.

    I don't normally write reviews but I feel compelled to with this lubricant. I have tried a couple of other products that say they do this and do that and have been disappointed.
    Bonk Lube... for a start you gotta love the name!! And it is a natural product, no taste or smell and seems to melt on application which makes it easy to apply and then you are good to go!
    Its not greasy or messy . It has enhanced our sex lives and we are in our 40's - it gets the job done!!
