Vaginal dryness is a common problem that many women have at some point in their lives. But some things can help.

  • Use water-based lubricants before sex – put these in and around your vagina, on your partner's penis, on your partner's fingers, or a sex toy if you're using one
  • Do not use perfumed soaps and washes around your vagina
  • ⚪ Try to enjoy more foreplay so you feel more aroused during sex
  • Do not put creams or lotions like petroleum jelly inside your vagina as it can cause an infection

If the dryness persists, visit your clinic.
