Vaginal Itchiness: How To Calm The Irritation

Posted: 25/01/2012 |Comments: 0 | Views: 87 |

An unfortunate part of being a woman is that vaginal itching and general discomfort will more than likely be experienced at one time or another. Closely associated to the menopause in many instances, though other reasons can be to blame, there can also be quite severe and intense pain while having sexual intercourse. There is no need to suffer though, with many remedies available, such as natural lubricants.

After menopause, a lack of lubrication is extremely common, with fifty per cent of all women suffering vaginal dryness and the horrible sensations that come with it. This is generally due to the decline in estrogen levels and other changes in the hormones.

The use of natural lubricants can really help here, but in addition, there are also other steps that can be taken. For example, women use a great many toiletries and laundry products which are heavily perfumed. Often through the use of harsh chemicals, getting rid of these can help substantially.

Keeping an eye on the diet is important too; but not necessarily in the way that you may think. One easy way that should certainly help matters is to increase the drinking of water through the day. Ideally, two liters of water should be taken through the day to promote the production of the body's own vaginal lubrication.

Another dietary tip which will be very hard for some women is to increase the level of fat they eat through the day. We all know that the body needs some fat to operate, and this is certainly true for the production of sex hormones. Eating seeds and cooking with healthy fats such as vegetable oils, olive oils and the like will help.

Applying natural vagina lubricants directly to the area will help too, and it is a particularly good idea to use these just before having sex with a partner. There are many different types of these available, each of which is likely to suit some users better than others. As such, reading about the ingredients and of what is available will help.

Heading to a specialist online store will help too, as they will be able to provide specialized advice and guidance for each individual. Furthermore, there will be better deals on offers here, and they are far more likely to bring new products to the market ahead of anyone else.

Many natural vagina lubricants also contain vitamins and herbs which can work to immediately reduce the pain caused from itching. Working to take the nasty swelling down there, they can provide exceptional relief very quickly; ideal for when the condition rears its ugly ahead at the most inconvenient of times.

In a similar vein, there are many natural vaginal gels available today. Working in much the same way as regular lubricants, these tend to be slightly thicker. For this reason, they can be more pleasurable to apply and to wear whilst having sex.

Both types of vaginal treatments, lubricants and gels, will most likely contain antibacterial agents to keep the vagina healthy too. Furthermore, they will also help increase blood flow to the area, which in turn will promote the body's natural lubricant production.
