We all know the importance of intimacy in any relationship. Sex is an integral part of any relationship; it conveys emotions and feelings that help us communicate better with our partners. One of the secrets of successful couples is to have a healthy sexual relationship. But when the pleasure or enjoyment of sex is hindered by vaginal dryness, couples should immediately seek treatment for this medical condition.
Many females suffer from vaginal dryness at one point of their life. There are many possible causes for this including diet, anxiety, age, and hormone levels in the body. Treatments for vaginal dryness may vary depending on the underlying cause. This medical condition is simple to treat and using a lubricant during intercourse can be a quick way to remedy the situation.
Without the moisture produced by the vagina, intercourse can be a painful and even traumatic experience. Moisture is naturally produced by the vagina during intercourse. The amount of discharge is naturally affected by hormone changes and age. A healthy female may experience changes in the amount, odor and consistency of their discharge.
Vaginal lubrication is produced by two small glands located beside the vagina. During intercourse fluids is released from these glands into the vagina. This serves as a lubricant for the penis allowing for smoother penetration and a more pleasurable experience during sex.
Hormones such as estrogen and progesterone are responsible for many female characteristics including vaginal secretions. This is why even healthy females may experience changes in the amount and consistency of discharge during the menstrual cycle. The changes are none more evident than when females go into menopause where the levels of estrogen and progesterone drop significantly causing lesser moisture in the vagina.
Here are some tips on how to cure vaginal dryness:
There are a lot of creams, moisturizers and oils which could be used to lubricate the vagina during intercourse. For women suffering from unusually dry vagina or decreased secretions, this could be an easy way of managing the situation. This however is not a treatment but only provides temporary relief from dryness.
The use of lubricants is recommended for females who have been diagnosed as healthy and the bout of dryness is only due to normal hormone level changes during menstruation, menopause, or pregnancy. Women must understand that lubricants are not cures but for normal functioning in the vagina is to be restored, treatment of the underlying factor should be considered for finding a permanent cure.
But, Gels like HerSolution try to restore your body’s normal systems which lubricate the vagina naturally and thus avoid the need for these gels.
Eating a diet that increases the production of estrogen helps in normalizing sexual functions in the female body. Estrogen plays an important role in determining moisture levels in the vagina and production of estrogen is affected by factors such as age. Fat intake affects estrogen production. Cholesterol is an important building block for estrogen and maintaining adequate amounts is important as women age.
There are also dietary supplements on the market that have a direct effect on the levels of estrogen in the body. However, consulting with your doctor and asking for a recommended dosage helps eliminate the risk of harmful side effects.
One of the visible signs of aging is skin dryness. As women advance in age, the body is unable to retain fluids leading to dry skin and less body mass. Increasing fluid intake helps to replace lost bodily fluids. Water makes up a huge percentage of our body and maintaining water levels helps the body to function normally.
Taking in some types of beverages such as coffee and alcohol also increase fluid loss in the body. These drinks have diuretic properties which speed up liquid loss. Aging decreases the body’s ability to eliminate these substances which only increases the effect of these compounds.
Although a great deal of research gone into the production of feminine wash and soaps, many of these products contain high levels of alcohols and irritants which strip the vagina of valuable moisture content. Feminine douches including those with antibacterial content dry the linings of the vagina. Swimming for hours in a swimming pool may also dry the skin with their high chemical content.
