I am extremely dry down there during sex. Should I increase the lubricant I get from you guys? And is there anything to help my pH balance?
I’m sorry you are feeling uncomfortable in the vaginal area. Increased lubrication can help but I would want to figure out the reason you are feeling dry. Vaginal dryness can be caused by a number of reasons: birth control, contact irritation to soap, perimenopause and menopause, over-wiping with toilet paper, etc. Probiotics can be helpful to re-establish your pH balance but I would check in with your primary care or gynecologist to discuss further and narrow in on what is likely to be causing this.
