Expert Answer

Many women have had it happen, they’re in the mood and ready to go, but down there is sort of dry. This is often a common issue, especially with women over 40. It’s also nothing to be ashamed of, and can easily be fixed for cheaper than you thought. Vaginal dryness is often due to a hormonal imbalance, which can happen once a woman turns a certain age.

It’s also an issue for many women who are going through menopause, or have menopausal symptoms. Many women end up spending loads of money on costly lubricants and treatments, not knowing that there’s a much cheaper and natural way of curing vaginal dryness.

Coconuts are a relatively magical tropical fruit which is sold around the world, it’s from this fruit that coconut oil is made. Coconut oil has many great uses for everything from cooking, skin help, organ health and even vaginal dryness.

The reason why coconut oil works so well for vaginal dryness is because of what it’s made of. It’s rather soothing and has a rich texture. This is why many women choose it to help with their vaginal dryness. Coconut oil works by basically moisturizing and soothing the vaginal area. This allows the vagina to retain the moisture provided by the coconut oil.

Curing Vaginal Dryness

Coconut oil can easily be used when it comes to treating vaginal dryness, and there are many ways to use it as well. The most three common ways are in pill form, in cream/oil form, and eating it. To use coconut oil in pill form, you will need to visit a herbal or retail store if your grocery store does not sell it.

You simply take the suggested dose, and let the coconut oil do it’s magic. To use the coconut oil in it’s cream/oil form, you will need to apply it directly to your vagina. You can do this as often as you’d like, and it can also be used as an inexpensive lubricant before sexual intercourse, which works best.

Many women have found that applying it a few minutes before having sex, allows them to stay lubricated throughout the whole action. Coconut oil can also be eaten, by taking a spoon full or two a day. By eating it, or ingesting it in pill form, you will also be able to experience the other benefits it has for the body, such as with the hair and skin.

There are many benefits for using coconut oil to treat vaginal dryness. Many women choose it because it’s inexpensive, works, benefits other parts of their body, and has no taste or foul scent. Coconut oil can also be used discretely because of the fact it doesn’t give off a scent or taste. Many people are able to find coconut oil in their grocery stores or retail stores.

However, depending on which form you choose to use it, a trip to a herbal store may be in order. Another great benefit of coconut oil is that it also works as an antibacterial substance, making it great for wounds even! Coconut oil is rather cheap and is extremely effective, especially when it comes to treating vaginal dryness. It allows for moisture to stay where you need it to, for as long as you need it to as well.

Another great thing is that there’s no negative side effects to using it, as it’s a completely natural substance. Nobody should let their vaginal dryness slow down their sex life, or stop it completely. Especially when there’s coconut oil in the world and for sale. The fact that it’s much cheaper than a lubricant, and less embarrassing to buy is worth trying it alone!
