- Vaginal dryness a sign of pregnancy?
- Q: I am wondering if vaginal dryness is a sign of pregnancy. I have had unprotected sex the 29th of October, the 2nd of November, and yesterday. I am due to get my period on the 15th. I took a Clear Blue Easy digital pregnancy test which says you can test 5 days earlier and it was negative. I have been feeling really tired, though I wonder if that’s just me being overanalytical since I am usually tired no matter what. I have not had any other symptom except feeling hungrier than usual, and again, that could be me overanalyzing since I eat when I feel hungry normally and don’t notice the exact timings.
- A: A variety of conditions can cause vaginal dryness. Determining the cause is key to helping you find an appropriate solution. Potential causes include:Decreased estrogen levelsReduced estrogen levels are the main cause of vaginal dryness. Estrogen, a female hormone, helps keep vaginal tissue healthy by maintaining normal vaginal lubrication, tissue elasticity and acidity. These factors create a natural defense against vaginal and urinary tract infections. But when your estrogen levels decrease, so does this natural defense, leading to a thinner, less elastic and more fragile vaginal lining.Estrogen levels can fall for a number of reasons:Menopause or perimenopause Childbirth Breast-feeding Effects on your ovaries from cancer therapy, including radiation therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy Surgical removal of your ovaries Immune disorders Cigarette smoking MedicationsAllergy and cold medications, as well as some antidepressants, can lead to dryness of mucous membranes, including those of your vagina.Sjogren’s syndromeIn this autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy tissue. In addition to causing symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth, Sjogren’s syndrome can also cause vaginal dryness.DouchingThe process of cleansing your vagina with a liquid preparation (douching) disrupts the normal chemical balance in your vagina and can cause inflammation (vaginitis). This may cause your vagina to feel dry or irritated.Hope this helps!
- My girlfriend can’t get wet all of a sudden…sign of pregnancy?
- Q: My girlfriend and I have been having sex for about a month. All of a sudden, after one very good sexual experience, two days later she became drier mid-intercourse, and it is now very difficult to get her wet enough to engage in sex. We started having sex right after her last period, so I guess her time of the month is coming up soon.We use condoms, correctly, each time. I am paranoid that the vaginal dryness is a sign of pregnancy. Is that the case? I’m just hoping she has her period already so I can rest easier, because neither of us want a child.
- A: Why would you relate that to pregnancy? You probably aren’t spending enough time on foreplay or she just isn’t as turned on, it happens to everyone. Also, if she’s on the pill, a side effect can be vaginal dryness. You’ve only been having sex for a month, and women’s bodies act very different at different times of the month. I wouldn’t worry about it unless she misses her period.
- Vaginal Itching/Soreness/Dryness?
- Q: I have never had a yeast infection, but I think I may have one. I am taking an antibotic for an ear infection, and I know that sometimes being on an antibiotic can cause a yeast infection. I don’t have an unusal discharge or anything, I just have some itching, and some pain and inflammation inside my vagina, and on the outside also. The inside of my vagina also seems to be more dry, and having sex is kind of uncomfortable now. (Sorry for all the details) My lower back is also bothering me. I’m not sure if I am pregnant or not yet, but I will be able to test in about the next 4-5 days. Could these just be early signs or pregnancy, or maybe its a yeast infection? I just don’t know..Oh yeah, I wasn’t meaning it as in, either I’m pregnant, or I have a yeast infection. I realize that it’s possible that both are happening. I think I’m pregnant because of other symptoms, but my mom said the only time she got yeast infections was when she was pregnant. I know they occur outside of pregnancy, but I’ve never had one before, and it just seems ironic that I would get one, along with back aches, and along with being naseous. I can test in a few days, so I guess I’ll find out then!Well, I was having unprotected sex, but with my boyfriend of 2 years..I have to wait to test, because I’m only about 9 days past ovulation, and that’s an estimate. I may have ovulated late. My last period was August 30th, but my cycles are usually 40 days apart, so I’m giving myself until October 11th to start, and if I don’t, then I will test.
- A: I always get yeast infections and that’s a sure sign! Get some monostat.In the meantime, fight itchyness with Vagisil wipes. They’re easy to keep in your purse and aren’t messy like cream!Vagisil makes this tester kit now, it’s super easy. It let’s you know the PH levels and tells you if you have an infection more serious than a yeast one. If you’re on birth control, especially yaz, you have increased risk for yeast infections! When I was on yaz, I got one every couple of months. It was awful!Good luck 🙂
