Question: vaginal dryness

 srv820 - Sat Sep 10, 2005 3:02 am

I have a complete hysterectomy. I have vaginal dryness. KY does not help nor astroglide nor vagafem or cream. Don't want to go back on hormones. All prescribed by the Dr.
anything else out there to help

User avatar Hi srv820,
Have you tried vaginal moisturizers such as Replens or Lubrin? These products are sometimes more effective in reducing vaginal dryness because they are usually effective for a longer period of time verses the short amount of time of K-Y or Astroglide. Keep in mind that sufficient arousal and regular intercourse also decreases vaginal dryness.
