Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

This is embarrassing, but I need advice. My husband and I have been married for 7 years (next week!). We have a great relationship and I love him very much. When we start to have sex I get very wet, but after about 5 minutes I start to get really dry. Is this normal? I have tried K-Y, but it just gets sticky and doesn't keep me wet. When I get too dry it hurts to continue. I can make myself have orgasms right after we start, so our intercourse lasts about 3 minutes. I orgasm, he orgasms and we are done. Now I really like to have sex, so we have it several times during the day. But I would love a lovemaking session to last an hour! But lately it just isn't going to happen. I do not take any medication or Birth Control. We do enjoy Porn together, but I feel like I've seen it so much it just doesn't do anything for me anymore. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I should also mention our anniversary is next week and we are going away, so I really need some advice. I want to make it a memorable vacation. Besides, it is suppose to rain, soo...............<p>[This message has been edited by Shel (edited 04-10-2001).]

Re: Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

Hello <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I'm going to stick to the dryness part of your question. You don't mention whether you use condoms or not so I'll assume you don't since you are married, but condoms can cause dryness to occur quickly like no one's business.

KY lube tends to go sticky quickly and can be really annoying if the problem is what you have, needing slickness for thrusting. I would recommend picking up some different lubes and trying them out. The top three for us for thrusting purposes are Astroglide (great for thrusting, lasts long, stays slick), KY Liquid (thinner than regular KY, doesn't dry out as quickly and stays viscous as opposed to getting thick as it dries) and Liquid Silk (same properties as both of the above). Experiment, see what works for you. You two sound like a very sexual couple, so the experimentation should be half the fun! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> It may not be as romantic as staying wet on your own, but if you miss long slow lovemaking sessions where there is a lot of penetration for long periods of time, lube is great and can be a lifesaver for you two.

You asked if it's normal to go dry after about 5 minutes...I don't know about for other folks, but with me it depends on some variables. If there is a lot of hard, quick thrusting involved or if there is a *****/vibrator involved then yes, I can dry up quicker.

Good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> And congrats on having such a strong sexual relationship after 7 years of marriage....something to be proud of!

Re: Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

My husband and I use Astroglide and it works well. When I get dry during the day I apply vitamin e oil to my vulva. You can also insert a vitamin e capsule and it will dissolve on its own. Hope you find something that works for you.

Re: Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

Astroglide is the best product that I have found. If you have a Target around you, you'll find it in the feminine hygiene area. I assume WalMart and other stores would have it too. I had been ordering it online, which you can do if you can't find it locally. Just do a search through *********** (which by the way, is the most phenonmenal search engine known to man.) Some of the "sex product" online companies also offer sampler collections so that you can try out different kinds without having to order a full size bottle. That way, you can see what works for you.

Re: Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

Now personally I dont have this problem but you might want to talk to your doctor about it. There are ways to solve it with the lube but talking to your docotr might be more helpful in the long run.

Re: Vaginal Dryness during Intercourse

what is youre age? have you had children? are you breast feeding? these things can alll change the hormones in youre body and make sex dryer. so can the pill.

I agree astroglide has to be the best product on the market for dryness. and it doesnt take alot of it either.
