Why using vaginal cream is safe: A guide to menopausal wellness

Vaginal dryness can be seen as a growing issue among modern women. As a result, vaginal creams are getting popular day by day. Not just postmenopausal women but menstruating women too can face this issue today. In this blog we are going to discuss the reasons for vaginal dryness, how we can use Ayurveda for women’s health, what organic solutions we can provide to you, and why it is absolutely safe to use vaginal cream for keeping discomfort at bay.

How menopause related to vaginal dryness

In menopause, the estrogen levels of your body go down which eventually contributes to hormonal imbalance. This impacts your vaginal health. Normally your vagina contains multiple layers of thick walls. But reduced estrogen level also reduces the vaginal wall glycogen that contributes to thinner vaginal walls. The decrease in glycogen protein makes the vaginal Ph go up from the normal range of 3.5-4.2 to 6-7. Because of all these factors, the vagina produces less lubricants to keep the vagina moist, thereby contributing to vaginal dryness.

Other Causes

Vaginal dryness creates discomfort and irritation that harm the overall women’s wellness in day-to-day life. It may occur due to several reasons that are part of common women’s wellness-related issues. Estrogen is a common hormone that is majorly responsible for vaginal moisture. However, menopause, which is a natural stage in a woman's body, leads to drastic hormonal changes in the female body. As a result, the level of estrogen drops significantly resulting in vaginal dryness. Besides, antihistamines and contraceptives can also cause vaginal dryness leading to significant discomfort. Stress and anxiety are unfortunately parts of the daily busy lives of today's empowered women. These along with insufficient arousal hinder the natural lubrication process of the female body.

Smoking and consumption of alcohol in an excessive manner can also impact the vaginal health causing vaginal dryness. Apart from these, certain medical surgeries and treatments may also result in vaginal dryness. Along with these, the situation worsens when women face dehydration issues and go through inadequate water intake. Therefore, menopausal concerns, hormonal disbalances, infections, and dehydration are major causes of vaginal dryness and these have to be addressed properly to sustain optimal women’s wellness in today’s modern era.

Symptoms of Vaginal Dryness

Here, I am sharing some symptoms through which the issue of vaginal dryness can be detected in your body-

  •   Dryness and itching: Constant feeling of itching in the vaginal area indicates a lack of natural lubrication.
  •   Pain & discomfort: During intercourse and exercise, pain and discomfort can be felt. 
  •   Burning sensation: Burning sensation down there reflects infection, and may be caused by vaginal dryness.
  •   Increased urinary issues: Urgency in urination, frequent urination, and even urinary incontinence can be caused by vaginal dryness.
  •     Light vaginal bleeding: Spotting or light bleeding can be caused by dry and thin vaginal walls.
  •   Thinning of vaginal tissues: Layers of the vaginal wall get thinner causing discomfort. 

How does vaginal dryness interfere with your daily life?

Vaginal dryness can hamper your daily life in many ways. It causes pain while sitting, exercising, urinating, or having sex. When the vagina is not naturally lubricated, the tissues of your vaginal wall get thinner and drier which leads to discomfort during intercourse. This also contributes to reduced flexibility and elasticity of the vaginal tissues which severely impacts overall women’s wellness. It can also occur in women who are still menstruating. Data from various population studies show that more than half of women who are going through menopause and almost 17% of menstruating women aged between 18-45 years experience vaginal dryness.

WYN’s solution

To take care of your vagina during menopause, WYN introduces an effective solution, the Ayurvedic Cream for Vagina, utilizing Ayurveda for women’s health.

    1. What is the safest treatment for menopause?

    The safest treatment for menopause differs from person to person as solutions are bio-individual. But here are a few other options available in the market.

    Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT can become an effective treatment but not without a doctor's guidance. In HRT, hormones like estrogen are inserted in the body artificially through pills or patches to treat the symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and excessive sweat. The other non-hormonal ways include lifestyle changes like diet, exercise, stress management, yoga and pranayama.

    2. What cream is used for menopause?

    During menopause your vagina becomes dry. Hence both hormonal and non-hormonal creams are generally used to reduce the dryness. Hormonal creams such as estradiol creams that contain estrogen are used to supply artificially made estrogen to help your vagina lubricate naturally. Non-hormonal creams such as moisturisers and Hydrocortisone creams act as artificial lubricants. Make sure these lubricants are specially designed for vaginal care. 

    3. Will estrogen cream affect my husband?

    It is best advised not to get into intercourse until at least 12 hours after applying estrogen cream. During intercourse high chances are your husband will likely absorb most of the estradiol cream instead of you if applied just before intercourse. Long term exposure to estrogen cream may cause decreased libido, erectile dysfunction. Hence it is best to let the cream absorb properly before you have sex. 

    4. What happens to your Vagina during menopause?

    During menopause the level of the natural female hormone, estrogen goes down. Hence the vaginal walls become very thin and sometimes inflamed too and the vaginal tissue becomes fragile. The natural lubrication in the vaginal passage does not happen, as a result of which your vagina gets dry. This leads to vaginal infection, burning sensation, irritation, pain during intercourse and urination,bleeding, sometimes UTIs.
