Vaginal Dryness

Common around the time of menopause, vaginal dryness is an often uncomfortable symptom that can occur at any age. Although it is not unusual for a woman’s vaginal fluids to decrease for a few days just before and after menstruation, dryness can in certain situations settle in in a more prolonged manner.

With acupuncture, laser acupuncture, chinese herbs, naturopathic advice and tuina massage we can help you to resolve symptoms of vaginal dryness.

Signs & Symptoms

From our patients’ experience, vaginal dryness can often result in:

  • Vaginal itching, soreness and irritation
  • Burning sensations
  • Painful Urination
  • Pain or bleeding with sexual intercourse
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections

Causes

These symptoms, to our knowledge, are often a sign of hormonal changes or imbalances. While they are common around the time of menopause and pregnancy, a number of other factors can also trigger them, including:

  • Overwork, emotional stress and lack of sleep
  • A poor diet
  • Dehydration
  • Reactions to soaps, body products or certain methods of contraception
  • Hormonal medication

Chronic vaginal dryness can also accompany a number of sexuality-related conditions, such as lack of arousal or vaginismus.

People Say

I first noticed vaginal dryness when vaginal fluids took longer and longer to come back after each period, until I started to experience itching and chafing most of the time. It was becoming difficult to have sex too. It was a very stressful time for me. I went to Nei Jing and started acupuncture and a treatment with herbs. Things have normalized a lot, and I haven’t had a serious episode of vaginal dryness since.

People Say

Apparently, I am one of these people who don’t react very well to hormonal birth control. I experienced constant vaginal dryness with it, as well as urinary infections, hot flashes and migraines. Acupuncture helped a lot, and I also followed precise dietary advice to help bring my hormones back to normal. The vaginal dryness disappeared, and thankfully the other symptoms as well. I am now working with my doctor to find another contraception method that suits me better.
