Vaginal Dryness & Vaginal Atrophy FAQs

  • Vaginal dryness can mean feeling sore or itchy in and around your vagina, or it may mean discomfort or pain during intercourse or a pelvic exam. For some people it can be noticeable frequently during daily life, whilst others will only notice discomfort during penetration. The use of vaginal moisturisers and lubricants can help reduce vaginal dryness so that you can start to feel better about this important part of the body.
  • While it may never go away completely, there is plenty you can do to manage vaginal dryness during menopause so that you can continue to feel comfortable and confident. The regular use of vaginal moisturisers can help with discomfort in daily life, and high quality water-based lubricants are a great way to have more enjoyable intimacy.
  • It is generally advised that you use a high quality water-based lubricant during menopause. Vaginal tissue can be more easily irritated, and so flavoured lubricants or lubricants that claim to ‘increase sensation’ might have an adverse effect. Oil-based lubricants are also less effective at soothing and hydrating dry tissue than water-based alternatives as they are not as well absorbed.
