Vaginal Dryness

I am 72 years old and so I suppose it's not surprising that I have vaginal dryness. I have tried several different moisturisers including Silk and one from Boots but they have all caused a stinging sensation. I'm not sure what else to try. Jannie

Re: Vaginal Dryness

It is very likely that this is due to menopausal lack of estrogen, which can have significant effects on the vagina and bladder.
Using a regular vaginal moisturiser can help, but also worth considering the use of low dose vaginal estrogen. See https://www.menopausematters.co.uk/dryness.php and resources at https://www.menopausematters.co.uk/vaginalresources.php
