vaginal dryness causes

I’ve been dealing with some, eh-em, lack of moisture down south recently. I visited my doctor to figure out what it could be about. Honestly, it doesn’t even really bother me because as far as sex goes, there is always store-bought lubricant, and I actually feel fresher and cleaner with a dry va-jay-jay, especially in the summer! That being said, I had to face the fact that it is not normal for a young woman to stop producing her own natural lubricant. I visited my doctor and we got to the bottom of the issue with me, but if you’re struggling with the same problem, the root of the problem may be different for you. There are several causes of vaginal dryness. And, while we’re on the topic, there are a lot of ways it affects your partner—sometimes in funny ways.


My partner takes it personally

My lack of moisture is a medical thing. It has nothing to do with my not desiring my partner at all. In fact, I am very into him, and am actively ready for intercourse—my arousal level is very high—by the time we have sex. My body still just…doesn’t produce moisture down there. And it’s hard on my man’s ego.
