Here are some common culprits for vaginal dryness:
You’re feeling stressed: Life can be overwhelming at certain periods, which can lead to being less present in the bedroom. One solution is to stop thinking you have to jump from whatever you’re doing to sex - instead you can dedicate time to setting a sexy mood and then get yourself in the mood!
You’re on medication: Several medications have the inconvenient side-effect of making an impossible feat out of getting wet. This includes low-dose birth control pills, which contain small amounts of estrogen, a key hormone in lubricating the vagina. The best solution is to make an appointment with your doctor and talk through better options
You’ve not found the right lube: certain oil-based lubricants can actually have the reverse effect of what they claim to do. If you find yourself in this situation, try a new one!
You have a yeast infection: these lovely infections disrupt the flora balance of the vagina, leading to potential dry sex. Consult your doctor for treatment options.
You’re not making enough time for foreplay: There are so many solutions to this one - feel free to try just one or all of them. Watch a sexy movie, put on your sexiest playlist, buy yourself some fancy lingerie or read some erotica. Get your partner involved and enjoy watching their arousal.
