Vaginal dryness tends to occur in older and middle-aged women in their 40s and 50s. It’s not uncommon to have cases of women in their 20s and 30s who suffer from vaginal dryness.
The vagina is naturally self-lubricating. It lubricates during sexual arousal or stimulation that is usually brought on by either thought or foreplay. Lubrication is the female body’s way of making the statement that it is ready for penetration. Lubrication helps the penis insert into the vagina and also helps to protect the vaginal tissues from the effect of stroking.
Causes of Vaginal Dryness
Physically speaking, vaginal dryness results from a hormonal imbalance and issues with the endocrine and reproductive systems. Vaginal dryness usually indicates a lack of the female hormone progesterone, but also a lack of the female hormone estrogen or perhaps a lack of both hormones in some cases.
On a deep level of understanding, when the vagina fails to naturally lubricate, it’s a sign that the woman does not want to have sex or that the woman should not be engaging in sex.
Natural vaginal lubrication is necessary for penile penetration and if there’s a problem with the vagina becoming lubricated (which it naturally does when a woman is sexually stimulated), then it’s a sign that sex should not be taking place until a problem is first addressed. The problem could be physical, mental, emotional, psychological, or even etheric.
The majority of females do not enjoy painful, burning penile penetration (which can rupture the delicate and soft vaginal tissue and lead to bleeding). Painful, burning penetration results from sex while the vagina is not lubricated.
What You Should Know About Commercial Lubricants
Dherbs does not advocate commercial brand lubricants for any purpose or reason, regardless of the sexual act or activity.
Many synthetic-based lubricants can cause further vaginal dryness. Synthetic man-made lubricant is not the solution for a dry vagina. A dry vagina means something is out of balance with the female endocrine and sexual reproductive system.
There are plenty of natural alternatives such as botanical oils such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and grape seed oil to name a few. Remember, ideally you should be able to eat anything you put on your body and if you can’t, it doesn’t belong on your body.
Many commercial brand lubricants contain petroleum that is derived from rocks and has no business on or in your body. Never use Vaseline either. Vaseline is 100% petroleum, hence its name, Petroleum Jelly.
There is a good alternative to petroleum jelly today that is sold in health food stores. It’s called ‘Un-Petroleum Jelly.’ It feels and looks just like petroleum jelly. It can be used for everything petroleum is used for.
Reversing Vaginal Dryness Naturally
No herb helps to reverse vaginal dryness like saw palmetto berry. Saw palmetto helps to stimulate natural lubrication in the vagina. It can be combined with false unicorn root for maximum effect. Six capsules (or 3 cups of tea) of saw palmetto berries daily should suffice (along with change in thought process, diet, lifestyle, and attitude) for purposes of reversing vaginal dryness.
Stimulating Sexual Thoughts
A good method to try involves stimulating sexual thoughts. The sexual excitement is totally mental. It takes the female body much longer than the male body to warm up due their Yin nature. Mental/sexual stimulation is necessary as a precursor to the sex act because it causes vaginal secretions to secrete for purposes of vaginal penetration.
For about 10 minutes daily, visualize erotic thoughts, thoughts of physical sexual foreplay. Don’t feel this is silly or that you’re silly for doing such. Don’t be shy. Use your mind to help yourself reverse vaginal dryness. Use your mind to become sexually aroused.
