Post Vaginal Dryness

Your advice is greatly appreciated. First off, I am 26 and suffering from vaginal dryness. I was on the pill (Demulen) for atleast 3 years, when my doc and I decided that the pill was definitely the culprit. Well, I tried Premarin, it worked for as long as I used it, and I developed melasma! Well, now I'm on natural progesterone cream, and it's a little to early to tell if it'll work. Oh- I also had my blood drawn to test my hormone levels and everything was fine, or so they say. I really need some help! I'm tired of Astroglide, I want my own glide back!

I'm shocked at all the things that cause dryness, as I'm finding out from this board here and other places on the net. I'm in your situation, also. 25 yrs old, been taking BCP's for the last 5 years, and I, too, have vaginal dryness. I'm going to end the birth control all together, except for condoms.

One thing you might want to try, just in case you don't already do this, but drink more water. I started drinking about half a gallon of water a day (any more would probably be too much) but it can sometimes help. Even on the pill, drinking water eased that dryness a little. It can't hurt, right?

Thanks Nickname. My doc told me the same thing, about the water. I'll continue to drink more and see if it works.
