Moisturize to stay sexy! (We don’t mean your face.)

by Margery Gass | Sep 18, 2012
You may need moisturizing in more than one place. After menopause, your vagina can become thin and dry, especially if you are not using it regularly. Using estrogen in the vagina is one way to ease the problem, but non-hormonal, non-prescription options are available in the form of vaginal moisturizers or lubricants. Moisturizers are absorbed into and cling to the vaginal lining like natural secretions, and they can last a few days. Lubricants reduce friction and are used right before sex. Go for water-based or silicone-based lubricants and not oil-based ones, which can cause irritation and make it easier for condoms to break. Learn more here.
