I'm 32 and have been suffering extreme vaginal dryness

This answer was rated:

Hello I'm 32 and have been suffering extreme vaginal dryness not just during intercourse, it's throughout the whole day. I have had 2 swabs for infections but nothing found. I have had hormone tests and they came back as satisfactory. I have also had in outer and inner pelvic ultrasound which shows nothing. I went through 2 cycles of IVF last year due to male factors. I am ok. One failed and one resulted in a miscarriage last December. Have you any ideas on what else could be causing such severe dryness.
HelloYesThe mixture of flora in your vagina can be wrong.Even without obvious infection.I would try a product called rephresh for 8 weeks, which stabilizes vaginal flora. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
