Dryness

What's a good way to increase natural lubrication in my vagina ? Would kegel balls help ? Pussy pump ? Or should I use rabbits for inside and outside stimulation ? If there are any women over 40 that found a way, please comment.

Don't take antihistamines & diuretics, plus drink water like a fish, lol! Other than diet related stuff and lube, they have over the counter, topical aids at the drug store (make sure they are condom friendly, if you use those). The problem is, without introducing hormones into the equation via systemic, or topical applications, you are left with the less effective means of diet and the always useful lubricating treatments. It also helps to keep your vagina active so it stays elastic and doesn't thin so much with menopause, plus the increased blood flow to the area from stimulation is what brings the fluid.. I have found lots of foreplay helps, but it just takes me longer to lubricate at 46 than even 43! As for any implements, I can't see how you will get them in there without lube to start. I find a few orgasms from clitoral stimulation lubes me up quite a bit, plus some saliva doesn't hurt. What have you tried? Have you tried herbal remedies, either oral, or topical? And for God's sake, don't douche or use anything around there that is irritating, such as a lot of chemicals in fragrance and soaps. They even say smoking attacks estrogen which can possible lead to dryness. Oral contraceptives are another of the medications I mentioned earlier that are notorious for causing dryness. You can eat foods rich in phytoestrogens such as "soy, apples, nuts, flaxseed, celery, alfalfa, and whole grains". I take a supplement that has evening primrose oil and black currant seed oil (plus other stuff) that gives me relief from menstrual cramps from hell. I would never have believed it if I hadn't gotten desperate enough to try it. So when I read Drs. Andrew Weil and James Duke are proponents of dong quai, I had to mention it to you to investigate if you want. Here's some more: "Fennel and fenugreek are also often recommended for vaginal dryness (as well as for milk production in breastfeeding mothers). Dr. Weil himself recommends chasteberry, black cohosh, and Vitamin E. "

What have you tried?

I consume "Damiana" pills to take care of that problem. Here's an article with a list of natural remedies: link.

How well have they worked for you and how long have you been taking them? For instance, do you not need to apply any lube during sexual activities? Do you take that every day? Do you have any side effects? I hadn't heard of it increasing lubrication that's why I'm so interested in what your experience has been!


Oh, and if you live in Louisiana, it's illegal to have any part or extract from the plant, lol!

Thanks for the reply, all of you. I'll look into them. Doctor did prescribe Vagifem. I took for maybe one week and will resume. Not only is it perimenopausal or menopause, I'm taking 2 different allergy medicines lately.

Again thank all of you for answering. Perhaps I should ask my husband for more oral.

I looked up Damiana and don't think I can take those. The link for dryness is very helpful. Some of herbs recommended there look like the type men take.
My husband is going to start taking them on regular basis he mention just the other day. He's a few years older than me and says he needs help.

Do you think I can take the same stuff like Tribulus Terrestris ? Aren't they for men ?

Yep, the allergy pills do it every time! Glad you saw a Dr about it and definitely, ask for more oral, lol!

cmm, having to apply lube several times a day and every time you use the restroom is a major pain in the ass! We're not just talking slapping on some lube for sex, we're talking "OMG, my whole groin is like sandpaper & on fire, I can't bear to walk!", kind of problem and often these lubes just don't work well enough! So, just going "with a good old lube" is not the answer.

Too bad you can't take Damiana, but then everyone's body is different.

Hmmm, you're right, other articles categorized Tribulus Terrestris as a guys' supplement for athletic performance and male health -- it's probably not that suitable for women.

Do you believe in traditional Chinese Medicines and Acupuncture -- they will be the most effective ways to restore harmony to our various organs. Check with your relatives or friends, see if they can recommend a reliable practitioner in your area.

I've been taking Damiana pills daily for over a year (probably longer?). I use it mainly to relieve my menstrual problems such as cramps, bloating, and breasts tenderness. It also helps with some of my perimenopause symptoms -- restoring my lowered libido and increasing my vaginal lubrication - both moderately. And no, not many articles mentioned using Damiana for vaginal dryness, but it does work for me. And yes, I still use a small amount of lube during sex or while I'm playing with my toys -- I'm not in my 20s or 30s anymore! LOL

Thanks for answering all the questions, Rossie! I think it's great that you found something and I just have to find out if it's something I can take if I need it.

Rossie, thanks for saying it out loud. Lowered libido was the major concern.

Wicked Waahine, thanks for letting CMM know. I don't think he understands about female perimenopause.

Yes, neither my husband or I are spring roosters or chickens anymore.

You're welcome, good luck! I have had dryness issues because of medication for more than 20 years and it's not pleasant!
