What is it and how do I treat it?
If you have ever had it, surely you have asked yourself these questions.
The main reason for vulvar dryness is the decrease in oestrogens, which is why it is usually associated with menopause. Although in reality, more than half of women who have it are under 50 years of age.
So this condition is highly prevalent in women of all ages.
Several factors affect oestrogen production:
- Taking certain medications (especially hormonal ones).
- The stages in the life of women in which oestrogen levels are altered (after childbirth, lactation, menopause, etc.).
- Smoking and alcohol.
- Having high levels of stress.
- The use of non-specific intimate hygiene products.
This dryness causes a decrease in the size of the vulvar epithelium due to the disappearance of fat and thinning of the mucous membranes.
The symptoms (pain, stinging or irritation, among others) are irritating and negatively impact the quality of life of women who have vulvar dryness.
In these cases, it is essential to start treatment with moisturising agents such as hyaluronic acid, an active ingredient extensively recommended by vulvar health experts.
Lubripiù Intimate Cream is a long-acting moisturising and soothing vulvar cream, indicated for all cases of intimate dryness.
