Despite the high number of women experiencing symptoms related to vaginal dryness, it is still a silent condition that many women feel embarrassed to share with their partners, friends, and even doctors. Vaginal dryness is a common symptom experienced during the premenopausal and postmenopausal years. Although inadequate vaginal lucration can occur at any age, vaginal dryness is a hallmark sign of vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis) – the thinning and inflammation of the vaginal wall due to a decline in estrogen. Along with vaginal dryness, women may also experience itching and stinging around the vaginal opening, and in the lower third of the vagina.
