What Causes Vaginal Dryness During Menopause?

When hormone production by the ovaries declines, most women experience symptoms of Vaginal Dryness. It is most often associated with the normal decline or fluctuation of estrogen and ranks among the ten most common problems occurring during menopause. More than 44 percent of women between 40 and 59 in menopausal or post-menopausal stages report problems with vaginal dryness. Among those complaining of vaginal dryness, nearly nine out of ten women (87 percent) describe it as at least moderately bothersome, with 51 percent finding it "very" bothersome. The National Institutes of Health lists feminine dryness among the most common menopausal symptoms.*
