What causes Vaginal dryness?

Vaginal dryness occurs when your estrogen levels drop. Your vagina is usually very elastic, able to easily stretch for sex and childbirth. But as estrogen levels go down, your vaginal walls get thinner and lose some of their elasticity. Your vagina becomes dryer and takes longer to become lubricated.

Finally, it may atrophy becoming somewhat smaller in width and length. This symptom may appear due to a sudden drop in estrogen. Also, it can be experienced when going through a natural premature menopause. Click here to read more about the causes of Vaginal Dryness.
