Vaginal dryness, also called atrophic vaginitis, is inadequate vaginal lubrication typically due to low estrogen levels. Usually estrogen drops following menopause but can occur due to other disorders. The decline in hormone levels can result in vaginal atrophy, or the thinning of vaginal tissue. Applying the correct treatment usually relieves symptoms, but the condition may result in sores or cracks in the vaginal walls, increases the risk of yeast and bacterial infections and makes sexual intercourse painful. Often vaginal dryness can be managed with a water-soluble lubricant available over the counter. If that solution is not effective, a woman should consult with her doctor.
