How Well Are You Treating Your Vagina?
“Self-care” is a frequently used phrase these days, but there’s one part of your body you may have been neglecting. Many of us discuss our skin-care routines and sleep improvement strategies, when talking about feeling better, we rarely mention vaginal dryness. Yet for most women, restoring vaginal vitality is one of the easiest self-care fixes ever.
Lube is only a temporary solution
Compare popular ideas about penises to how people think about vaginal dryness. Anyone who’s watched television commercials in the past twenty years knows the treatment for erectile dysfunction is a little blue pill. So why do we assume the only treatment for vaginal dryness is a topical application of lubricant? Lube only works temporarily, leaving your vagina dry again in between applications. What if you could enhance your vaginal lubrication from the inside, and for the long-term, without taking hormones?
Estrogen-Free Nutritional Supplement
Membrasin® Vitality Pearls work from the inside, nourishing vaginal mucous membranes. Taken orally, SBA24™ diffuses through your stomach, into your bloodstream and then nourishes the mucous membranes that line the vaginal wall. Membrasin® Vitality Pearls help maintain your own vaginal moisture. By taking two Membrasin® Vitality Pearls once a day, you can begin to experience lasting change in your vaginal mucous membranes.
Some physicians prescribe Menopausal Hormone Therapy (MHT, also referred to as hormone replacement therapy or postmenopausal hormone therapy). Doctors may recommend either systemic or local hormone treatments. Systemic treatments include transdermal patches, oral medication and implants. Vaginal dryness is commonly treated with local MHT delivered intravaginally via creams, tablets, or rings.
The National Cancer Institute website states that MHT is associated with a variety of health risks including hip and vertebral fractures, vaginal bleeding, urinary incontinence, dementia (among women age 65 and older), breast cancer, plus strokes, blood clots, and heart attack. The FDA’s fact sheet on menopause and hormones recommends, “If you decide to use hormone therapy, use it at the lowest dose that helps. Also use hormones for the shortest time that you need them.”
Common myths about vaginal dryness
Some people assume that vaginal dryness is an inevitable part of aging. This assumption is doubly wrong. Not everyone who goes through menopause experiences vaginal dryness, while some women experience it in their 30s or even 20s. Another myth about vaginal dryness is that it’s merely a situational inconvenience, a condition that can cause sex to feel uncomfortable or even painful.
Regardless of whether you’re sexually active, maintaining vaginal moisture plays an important role in the overall health of anyone who possesses a vagina.
Linking vaginal health to overall health
If left untreated, vaginal dryness can contribute to several health concerns. Severe vaginal dryness can result in sores or cracking of the vaginal tissues. Another frequent side-effect of ongoing vaginal dryness is urinary tract infections.
Vaginal dryness can also sometimes be a symptom of other health concerns. Talk with your physician about whether your vaginal dryness could be related to gastrointestinal issues, Sjorgen’s syndrome (an autoimmune disorder affecting mucous membranes, including salivary and tear glands as well as vaginal skin), or emotional concerns like anxiety and depression.
