When your body enters menopause it produces less estrogen. This causes the vaginal walls to become thinner and drier, and a reduction in lubricant production by your mucus membranes results in vaginal dryness. Due to the decrease in estrogen the pH of your intimate zone goes up. This reduces the vagina’s natural acidic protection and makes you more vulnerable to irritation and itching. Meaning, your intimate zone needs extra care.
Does every woman who goes through menopause experience vaginal dryness, or is this just a myth?
Vaginal dryness among menopausal women is not a myth. When you go through menopause, you will experience a hormonal shift that includes a drop in estrogen levels.
A drop in estrogen levels causes the vaginal walls to get thinner and drier. A reduction in lubricant production by your mucus membranes results in vaginal dryness.
Some women take hormone supplements to rebalance after this shift. Lactacyd Pharma Moisturizing has an adapted pH and contains moisturizing ingredients to bring extra hydration to the intimate zone.
Excessive vaginal discharges ever since you’ve entered menopause?
Excessive vaginal discharge can be a sign of a vaginal infection. This is particularly common among menopausal women due to hormonal imbalances that make the vagina more prone to bacterial infection. Ask your doctor or gynecologist for advice about medication for vaginal infections.
How do I know if I am experiencing vaginal dryness?
Discomfort may be felt internally, externally, or both. Many women first notice vaginal dryness when intercourse becomes uncomfortable or when transitioning into menopause. A feminine moisturizer can be used to help relieve vaginal dryness and make intimate moments more pleasurable.
