Vaginal Dryness is not uncommon and can be a result of varying life conditions including the following:

  • Perimenopause and menopause
  • Change in hormones
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding
  • Stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Imbalance in vaginal pH
  • Allergy, cold medicines, and antihistamines
  • Chemotherapy/exposure to radiation
  • Candida Albicans
  • Diabetes

Vaginal dryness can be caused by factors other than a hormonal imbalance. The chemicals found in detergents, soaps, or unnatural lubricants can also irritate the vagina and result in dryness. Allergy and cold medicines that contain decongestants and antihistamines can decrease moisture in the body. Those experiencing anxiety, stress, or depression may also experience dryness in their vaginal area. Dr. Goldstein of Alvarado Hospital states that a woman has insufficient blood flow when she becomes anxious. Stress can also change the body’s internal chemistry, including the hormonal balance.
