What are the symptoms of vaginal dryness ?
Common symptoms of vaginal dryness are burning, itching or soreness of the vagina.
Vaginal bleeding (spotting) may also occur.
You may first notice vaginal dryness as a lack of natural lubrication during sexual intercourse.
Vaginal dryness is usually the first symptom of Atrophic Vaginitis - thinning, dryness and inflammation of a woman’s vaginal tissues. These tissues normally make a clear lubricating fluid to keep them healthy and supple but if this doesn’t happen vaginal dryness occurs.
Up to about 50% of women with symptoms describe them as moderate or severe.
