What Are the Causes of Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness affects millions of women across the world and can be painful and even embarrassing. At Allegro MedSpa in Santa Rosa, we understand the frustration women feel when they lack natural lubrication and want to find a solution for vaginal dryness.

There are various causes of vaginal dryness, most of which can be treated with nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation with Viveve!

About vaginal dryness

The healthy vagina has a thin layer of moisture that naturally coats its walls. Supported by estrogen, this fluid helps to keep the lining of the vagina healthy and elastic. When the thin layer of moisture that naturally coats the walls of the vagina begins to go away, it can cause a lot of discomfort. This can happen to women at any age for any number of reasons!

Vaginal dryness can lead to:

  • Burning
  • Less interest in sex
  • Painful sex
  • Bleeding after sex
  • Soreness
  • Recurring urinary tract infections
  • Itching 

By far the most common concern we hear related to vaginal dryness is the severe impact it can have on a healthy sex life. 

Causes of vaginal dryness 

The most common cause of vaginal dryness is simply the lower estrogen levels that come with aging. Nearly a third of women deal with vaginal dryness as they go through menopause. However, there are many other factors that can lead to vaginal dryness in women of any age. Those include:

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Depression
  • High stress levels
  • Breastfeeding and childbirth
  • Certain immune system disorders
  • Certain antidepressants, cold medications, and allergy medications

By improving the natural lubrication of the vagina, daily life will become more comfortable and sex can be much more enjoyable!
