Very often after menopause or if one had tx for Breast Cancer with chemotherapy vaginal dryness occurs. It is very good to use lubricants because that reduces pain on intercourse and also reduces irritation of the whole vaginal area. The Colen MD office has a very nice lubricant sample that you may request to try. It is just the right consistency and feel and smell and even taste. For women who exercise by bicycling or spinning vaginal dryness may cause bleeding and pain. So consider lubrication. After all we lubricate our skin and especially our faces at night. What is so unusual about lubricating the vaginal area? It is prone to yeast infections, Barthelin gland infections, genital warts, various allergic reactions and rashes. It must be taken care of as any other part of our body. So ladies pay attention and take care of every part of your body and that includes the vaginal area as well. Call the office for some samples of gels that you may enjoy.
