Dryness or something else

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi Ladies,

ok I'm not sure where to start with this ?  I've got something going on down below that's sending my anxiety through the roof !  When I sit down I get a sensation, almost like the skin is stuck together (sorry to be graphic) it also feels slightly sharp sometimes ? Is this possibly a symptom of vaginal Atrophy or could it be prolapse ? I've tried to have a look and I can't see anything ? Some days it's less uncomfortable than others.  Thanks in advance xxx

    Hi Debbie, I got the dryness and I get like mine sticking together too, I think it's because your drying out but as you say it goes and comes. Ignore it till find a cream for it

      Hi maria,

      So grateful for your reply.  It’s so comfort that you say you have the same ! I really don’t know how to describe it really ? But what I first noticed cannonky be described as if something needs realising ? At first I thought it was an air bubble ? Because when I sat down it seemed to release something . . Now I’m thinking is it the skin becoming unstuck ? I don’t know it s new to me and freaked me out a bit xx I also think the worst xx

      Hi Maria,

      Should have checked that before I sent it ! So many typing errors ! It should say ‘releasing’ not realising !!! Sorry hope you can make sense of it xxx

    Hi coconut oil has been an incredible help to me.

    I also have an oestrogen Cream from the doc but the coconut oil really helps ‘outside’, it’s really worth a try.

    Hope that helps, I learned this from a tip on this forum!

    Our down below equipment varies so much from person to person that it is impossible to say what is normal and what is not. If you have a good and understanding dr get them to check you out for a prolapse which is easily correctable with ring insertion. It may well be that you are just drying out and perhaps shrinking a bit. Get a good vaginal moisturiser or even a clear lubricant like KY Jelly. They are all good to relieve the discomfort or the dr can give you something for it. XXX

    Debbie, it feels like a paper cut does. Very sharp pain, red & sore but for me the coconut oil has really helped.  Do hope it works for you.
