I have dryness and soreness why? Comes and goes tired moisturizers.
Vagina dryness and soreness why?: I have... - Women's Health
Since the menopause I have suffered with this too and tried many moisturisers and creams from over the counter and on prescription and the best thing I’ve used is coconut oil, it’s a great moisturiser and keeps my soreness at bay, it’s cheap and all natural with no nasties in it. I use it everyday.
You should definitely speak to your GP about it and be tested and treated for whatever may be causing it but in the meantime while you’re waiting for tests etc you might find coconut oil soothing.
All the best 🌸
Is the pain there if you use lubricants? If not, use lots of lubricants, don't just put up with the pain. If the pain is still there despite lubricants, then it needs an appointment with a doctor. Pain isn't uncommon, it's treatable, but sometimes you need someone who knows what they're talking about to examine you. Trying to treat at home can potentially exacerbate the pain.
There's a helpful book called "when sex hurts" that you can read through.
Hi Mia898. Vaginal dryness and soreness is usually due to reduced oestrogen. You noted that it comes and goes, Hormones fluctuate during your monthly cycle. Around the time of and after menopause dryness and soreness is more frequent due to low oestrogen levels. What is your age? There are over the counter creams available that are applied directly to the vaginal area that are used to treat your symptoms. Be very careful what you are putting on or inside that area.
Hi Mia898. Do you know which type of PCOS you have? What are your symptoms? Which medication are you on for PCOS? The typical type of PCOS is accompanied by oestrogen dominance. If you're on Yaz (drospironone which is progesterone) for PCOS, it's possible that now your oestrogen is too low, and that is causing your symptoms.
Even if you're not menopausal age, hormones still fluctuate up and down every month since you started your cycle as a young woman. During a normal monthly cycle oestrogen rises daily for the first 14 days. Once you ovulate, your oestrogen takes a deep dive during the first part of week three before it slowly goes up a bit. In the fourth week of your cycle oestrogen takes another plunge. Have you noticed where you are in your cycle when you have these symptoms? Women can start perimenopause even in their late 30's.
Thank you for all your helpful advice. No I just know I have PCOS with other gynae issues!!!
I don`t take any medication other than homeopathic . I did get offered the Yaz pill.
Symptoms lack of periods and i have loads of stomach pain and mood swings . I couldn't say where my cycle was with the symptoms as so all over the place.
Would PCOS cause mental health issues as last year just for a few months I felt so depressed but no reason ? As good life and everything.
