What is vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness is when the walls of your vagina get thinner and drier, caused by a change in the balance of your hormones around menopause. With less natural lubrication, you can be left feeling itchy and uncomfortable.

Vaginal dryness is a common problem that many women have at some point in their lives, but it usually occurs during perimenopause or menopause.

You may also experience vaginal dryness caused by hormone changes if you are breastfeeding, taking the contraceptive pill or have your womb removed (hysterectomy).

If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness not related to menopause, please see your GP in person.
