Sometimes, communication within the couple is enough to resolve certain apprehensions.
> Vaginal lubricants : they are available without prescription in pharmacy. They facilitate penetration. Note: the lubricating gels Vaseline and oil are to be avoided because they are irritating to the mucous membranes.
> Homeopathy is also an alternative to consider to treat vaginal dryness (with, for example, treatment with Bryonia - 7CH).
> Hormonal treatments (vaginal application of creams or eggs, tablets) may be prescribed by a doctor if the symptoms persist despite the use of lubricants. These treatments increase the concentration of estrogen in the blood, which helps restore the vaginal mucosa its flexibility and moisture. These treatments are generally prescribed for other indications, such as hot flushes.
> Doctors also sometimes offer botulinum toxin injections to fight against vaginal dryness and vaginal tonicity.
