There’s no doubt about it. A lot of us suffer from menopause vaginal dryness when we are in our fifties. This is caused by a dip in estrogen level.
Loss of estrogen causes the vagina walls to lose its thickness making it fragile and vulnerable to small tears and breaks during sexual activity.
Diminished estrogen also affects the vagina’s ability to lubricate, a main cause of vaginal dryness after menopause.
Thinning vaginal walls and lack of lubrication are the two main causes of painful intercourse.
While female dryness is a fact of life after "the change", the good news is that menopausal vaginal dryness can be easily corrected with my recommendations from treating vaginal dryness.
Many women help relieve vaginal dryness and overcome painful sex with their own hands. Your body can be retrained to maximize its natural lubrication by "waking up" your clitoris and G-Spot.
Here are some examples on how to do it.
The clitoris is the external knob of extremely sensitive flesh situated at the top of the vaginal slit. It has thousands of nerve endings that extend far and wide beneath the surface of our body. It is the only part of the human body that has no function at all other than giving pleasure.
Many women ease menopause vaginal dryness and painful intercourse by stimulating the clitoris to bring on lubrication. You can do this either through self-touch or partner-touch.
Applying the feminine gel as shown on the clitoris and the vulva opening is very pleasure and sensual to get lubrication flowing.
As the clitoris is a very sensitive organ it can get irritated quickly if it is not pleasured correctly. Be patient and explore to find out what works best for you. Feed backs from friends reported that lightly stroking the outside area and not directly on the top of the clitoris is the most pleasurable way.
The Grafenberg Spot or G-Spot seems to be more prominent as estrogen levels drop. That is why women who suffer from menopause vaginal dryness might have a better advantage of finding the G-spot than their younger sisters.
The G-spot is made up of erectile tissues. When we are sexually aroused the tissues swell up when blood rushes to it. So foreplay is important when locating the G-spot.
To find it you have to slide your middle finger one or two inches in from the vagina opening towards the front vagina wall. The “front” wall is the wall of the vagina on the same side as the belly button. Position your finger in a “come hither” sign until you reach an area which is rougher and slightly ridged than the rest of the vaginal wall. That is the G-spot!
Stimulating it with a firm “tapping” motion
creates waves of excitement and pleasure which leads to powerful orgasms.
Practice finding and awakening your G-spot twice a week either alone or with your partner. Believe me, it brings on a whole new dimension to your intimate moments.
In addition to aging, one common cause of menopausal vaginal dryness and vaginal burning during sex is not having enough sex. When sex after menopause is difficult making it almost impossible for a man to insert his penis in, vaginal dilators could help.
Vaginal dilators are tampon-shaped devices that a woman can insert into their intimate area for several minutes to stretch the tissues and keep them pliable. They come in sets that range in size from small (from three quarter inch in diameter to about the size of a fully-erect penis). You start with the smallest and gradually work your way to the larger sizes. Be patient as it can take weeks or even months to get to the larger sizes.
You can get your doctor to recommend and explain the proper techniques to use a dilator .
Manjakani (oakgall) is the most powerful astringent herbs known. Its rich blend of nutrients help to:-
Take heed of my suggestions. With a little stimulation, imagination and the herbal products sex after menopause can still be gratifying.
Never have the misconception that menopause vaginal dryness is a sign that you are no longer sexually excited or attractive. Or think that sex after 50 is inappropriate.Back to top
