Private Organ Dryness: Here Are 5 Causes Of This Condition In Women

Dryness of a woman's private organ is not common among very young women rather it is a most common symptom during and after menopause, but it can happen at any age and for various reasons.

A woman's private organ is not supposed to be dry especially during intercourse and if this happens, it means she might have a medical condition and this condition usually results from low estrogen levels. Estrogen is the hormone that keeps the lining of the vagina lubricated, thick, and elastic.

Dryness in a woman's private organ is seen as a minor issue therefore they use lubricant and they feel all is well and hence see no need for medical advice.

This condition can lead to pain during intercourse, and contributing to a loss of s£xual desire. Also, it can cause discomfort during sports and other physical activity, and increase the risk of vaginal infections.

Let's look at some of the common causes of dryness in a woman's private organ.

1. Drop in estrogen levels: In a normal circumstance, estrogen levels begin to drop as menopause approaches. It also plays a key role in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy.

2. Stress and anxiety,

3. Reduced blood supply to the vagina.

4. Flammer syndrome. This is a condition in which blood vessels react in an unusual way to stimuli such as cold and stress.

5. Smoking. Women who smoke may experience menopause earlier than those who do not, and also so dryness of the private organ may occur at an earlier age than normal for female smokers.
