Moisturising your vulva and vagina regularly can provide great symptom relief for dryness and discomfort. Lubricants used during sexual intercourse can help reduce pain and improve pleasure. There are some excellent over the counter products that can help. Moisturisers, lubricants and local estrogen can all be used with or without systemic HRT.
Our recommended brands include YES and SYLK. They are specifically formulated to match the typical environment of the vagina without containing worrying chemicals. If you are using condoms, we would recommend using a water soluble lubricant. Each can be prescribed, bought online, or over the counter.
