Alternative treatments for vaginal dryness
Is there a drug-free treatment for vaginal dryness?
Because there are many causes of vaginal dryness, there are many potential treatments. Before self treating, you should be sure your vaginal dryness is not caused by an infection, foreign body, or tumor (a rare cause of vaginal dryness).
A very common cause of vaginal dryness is lack of the hormone, estrogen. (See: atrophic vaginitis ) Applying a vaginal estrogen-based cream can help relieve this dryness. Water-based lubricants also are effective for relieving vaginal dryness. Lubricants will moisten the vaginal lining for several hours, and the effect of a vaginal cream can last for up to a day.
Soybeans contain plant-based substances called isoflavones that weakly mimic the action of estrogen. A diet rich in soy foods would therefore be expected to improve symptoms of vaginal dryness. R...
