    Sounds like vaginal dryness.. try coconut oil. I use a vaginal hormone for dryness and vaginal atrophy. Works wonders and isn't systemic. But since you don't want hormones try the coconut oil, make sure it's pure organic, stick a chunk inside and slather it around the vulva.. others use YES lubricant. If you look around on here youll find tons of suggestions. I personally like the coconut oil in between my hormone schedule if I need it.

    Good Luck!!!

    Try using femme fresh wipes or wash, it helps to bring back vaginal pH balance

    The coconut oil and the wipes are all great suggestions. I would also add a specialized probiotic for vaginal lubrication. I took one orally. They are pretty common; I took the one that is a misspelling of the word refresh. I had to stop taking it every day because it was like I was peeing myself things got so.... you know. 😃 It really did stop the itching.
