Vaginal Dryness RELIEF in Australia

Vaginal dryness is common for women and it becomes even more so as women get older and go through menopause, thinning of vaginal walls or other medical conditions.  In Australia, all women experience it during their lives, whether naturally or as a result of medical treatment.   It can take a several days, weeks or even a month to re-moisturise the vagina. 

Vaginal dryness symptoms include sudden cramping, burning sensations, and discomfort or sharp pains during sex.  It is painful and can occur for a number of reasons.   If symptoms persist, you should seek the assistance from a medical professional.

You might think that vaginal dryness symptoms will pass quickly and you can continue having pain-free sex as normal but that’s not always the case.  Many women find that Astroglide Personal Lubricant assists to substitute for the lack of natural moistness in their body. Some apply it daily and some use syringes available often free from Chemists to insert it where it is needed.  This is best done lying down.

We often get asked what is the best Astroglide Personal Lubricant for vaginal dryness.  The answer is that they are all suitable as they are also vaginal moisturisers, not just Personal Lubricants.     It just comes down to personal preference.   Some women prefer a Gel Lubricant as it stays in place longer than a Liquid Lubricant.  Some prefer Water Based and some prefer Silicone Based, as the latter lasts longest.  We have Gel and Liquid varieties in Water Based and Silicone Based.    Plus we also have a Certified Organic Personal Lubricant.    Astroglide is the only manufacturer with a complete Water Based Gel and Liquid, Silicone Based Gel and Liquid and Certified Organic range for women with vaginal dryness.    That is why we are the number 1 brand globally.     You can buy online from our website, click here.

Life is too short for sore sex. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, personal lubricants can help make sex wetter, more comfortable and more satisfying.  How to increase my vaginal lubrication?

Insufficient lubrication makes sex not just uncomfortable but painful. Painful sex is common: According to data, an estimated 70 percent of women report having experienced it at one point or another. “Lube isn’t the solution for all sex pain, but it can help many situations,” says Christina Cerqueira.

Yet for the most part, women stay silent about pain or discomfort during sex, either out of embarrassment or fear of displeasing their partners. In a culture where female pleasure is often considered little more than an afterthought, this isn’t all that surprising — nor is it shocking that there would be stigma around a product that is largely intended to make sex more pleasurable and comfortable for women.

If you experience painful sex, then personal lubricant is your best friend. Some women feel pain during sex because of vaginal dryness or lack of lubrication — whether from being aroused or from an artificial source.Endometriosis But using water-based or silicone-based lubes during sex can really help ease any discomfort. You should use as much lube as possible so that you’re sufficiently wet, and remember to reapply when you feel your vagina drying out. “Don’t be afraid of lube, even if you don’t think you need it,” As one expert said “Lube, lube, lube, and then throw on more lube.”

Regular sex

You may be surprised, however regular sexual activity, whether alone or with a partner with Astroglide, can help manage vaginal dryness.

Blood flow to the vaginal tissues increases during arousal, and this helps stimulate moisture production.

Adequate foreplay and arousal before sex can help overcome vaginal dryness and make sex more enjoyable.

Vaginal Dryness Relief

Astroglide is the premium personal lubricant brand.  One of the reasons is that our products are not only personal lubricants, but also vaginal moisturisers.  You only need a few drops to achieve lubrication and we have water based liquid and gels to suit your preference.   Some women with extreme vaginal dryness tell us that our silicone based liquid and gel works best for them.

A great starting point for dealing with a dry vagina is to use a lubricant like Astroglide during foreplay, making sure to engage in at least 20 minutes of foreplay in order to maximise sexual arousal.  With increased sexual excitement, you may experience more natural lubrication, plus give your vaginal canal time to elongate comfortably to accommodate his penis (as pain is sometimes caused by the tip of the penis hitting up against the cervix).

Most personal lubricant users will admit that they had to try out a few different formulas before they found the perfect one for them, so don’t be shy -- request some free Astroglide samples and start exploring your options. You might even find that you or your partner enjoy more than one formula for different reasons. That’s totally OK -- there’s no rule that says you can only own one bottle of lube. So go ahead: experiment, share, play and explore. Most of all, have fun!  If you still need help head on over to our lube selector and we will help you pick out the best formula for you.

Our Naturally Derived product for example is water-based and available in 74ml bottles and 4ml sachets and wholly made from natural and organic derived ingredients. The perfect blend of naturally derived ingredients creates a natural vagina treatment that never gets sticky and is long-lasting also acting as a vaginal moisturiser.   Like our Sensitive Skin Ultra Gentle Gel, that is also water based, both these lubricants are Glycerine free, Paraben Free, Alcohol Free, Fragrance Free and Colouring Free.  If you have extremely sensitive skin, we recommend you place a small drop on the inside of your forearm before applying to more delicate areas. The Sensitive Skin Gel is also Preservative Free.

Vaginal Dryness after Hysterectomy

Vaginal dryness can be a problem for some women who have undergone a hysterectomy, so know that you’re not alone!  In tackling vaginal dryness, the best and most important thing you can do is to talk to your Medical Professional about the symptoms that you’re experiencing. In determining the cause (beyond having had a hysterectomy), your Medical Professional may test your hormone levels. If needed, they may explore alternative therapies and vaginal moisturisers with you.

Try an Astroglide vaginal lubricant when sexually active, as this could diminish pain and discomfort, making things more pleasurable. Take your time when making love, allowing your body to get as turned on as possible. 


You may like to take the time to condition your vulva and vaginal walls, as in perform a regular massage, with your hands, a sex toy or vibrator, using lube, to gently stretch and strengthen your skin. ou want to press and release the fluid into your skin (versus rub or stroke it). Over time, this could condition your skin, helping to increase blood flow, flexibility and tissue resiliency.

Many women complain of vaginal dryness, especially during or after menopause, or following a hysterectomy. 

While, for many, the dryness does not affect their daily lives, it can make sexual activity difficult and painful, to the point where they start to avoid sexual contact altogether. Furthermore, some women also experience symptoms such as burning or itching around the vulva, even when they’re not having sex.

Lubricants that are formulated to mimic natural vaginal lubrication

One way to alleviate the discomfort experienced with vaginal dryness is by using Astroglide vaginal dryness products. Specially formulated to mimic the natural moisture found in the vagina, Astroglide female lubrication products are one of the best-known and most popular brands of vaginal lubricants worldwide.

Invented over 40 years ago by NASA Aerospace Scientist Dan Wray, the range of water based and silicone based lubes are some of the best female lubrication products available on the market today. 

Astroglide lubricants provide long-lasting relief from vaginal dryness

While many people buy vaginal lubricants to enhance sexual activity, you’ll find that Astroglide personal lubricants are also ideal for everyday use when vaginal dryness is a problem. 

Only a few drops of our silky smooth vaginal lubricant are needed to provide long-lasting relief from the itching and burning sensations often associated with this uncomfortable condition. 

One application of our lubricant lasts for hours and there’s no sticky feeling, no irritation and no tell-tale taste or smell. In fact, it’s difficult to distinguish our lubrication from the natural moisture so kindly provided by Mother Nature. 

The benefits of using Astroglide Naturally Derived water based lubrication

The Astroglide range contains a variety of both water based and silicone based products, which provide immediate and on-going vaginal dryness relief from irritating and painful symptoms. 

For example, our Naturally Derived lubricant is water based and comes in handy 4ml sachets and 74ml bottles. Made from natural and organic derived ingredients, this popular lubricant is non-sticky, long-lasting and feels just like your normal lubrication. 

If you suffer from extra sensitivity, our Sensitive Skin Ultra Gentle Gel, is also water based and is free from any glycerine, parabens, alcohol, fragrances, preservatives and colourings. 

However, like any skin product, we do recommend that you test out a small amount on the inside of your forearm before applying to your more delicate and sensitive areas. 

However, some women have found that the silicone-based products are most effective in relieving any associated symptoms. As with most things, it’s a case of trial and error – you’ll need to try out the products to see which one works best for you.  Assists your wellness through confidence in relationships.

How to relieve vaginal dryness during sex with female lubrication

Dealing with a lack of vaginal moisture is easy with Astroglide female lubrication. Try inserting a little of our vaginal dryness cream, liquid or gel into and around the vaginal opening during foreplay. 

This will not only help to relax the internal muscles but will help to relax you too, especially if you’re experiencing anxiety about penetration. 

The longer you engage in foreplay, the more relaxed you’re likely to be and the more aroused, so try to make it last for anything up to 20 minutes. 

Relieving vaginal dryness following a hysterectomy 

Undergoing a hysterectomy results in vaginal dryness for many patients. While your first port of call should always be your medical practitioner, you can help to relieve the symptoms with one of our personal lubricants. 

Our Astroglide lubricants are carefully designed to help to restore moisture levels and, together with adequate foreplay, can help to make sex much more comfortable and enjoyable. 

You may also find that internal massage with your fingers or a sex toy together with a little lubricant, will help to increase blood flow to the area, and so increase the flexibility and resilience of the delicate tissues. 

Which lubricant will be the best one for you? 

This is down to personal preference. What one woman may say works for them might not be the best option for you, and many women try out a few different formulas before they find the one that provides the optimum relief and comfort. 

At Astroglide, we understand that one formula doesn’t necessarily suit all, and that’s why we offer you the chance to try before you buy. Simply request our free Astroglide samples and see which one you prefer. 

You may even find that you prefer more than one formula, and that one product may be best for everyday relief of vaginal dryness, while another may turn out to be your favourite when it’s time to turn up the heat in the bedroom. 

Our lube selector will help you to find the best lubricant for women who suffer from vaginal dryness, so head on over and see what it suggests for you.

Personal lubricants and vaginal moisturisers are effective in relieving discomfort and pain during intercourse for women with mild to moderate vaginal dryness.  Both personal lubes and vaginal moisturisers reduce the friction associated with thin, dry genital tissue that can occur.

Personal lubricants

Astroglide is available either as water, silicone, organic oil base and are applied to the vagina and vulva (and the partner’s penis if required) prior to sex. Astroglide acts rapidly to provide short-term relief from vaginal dryness and related pain during sex. They are particularly beneficial for women whose vaginal dryness is a concern only or mainly during sex.

Astroglide water-based lubricants have the advantage of being non-staining. Excipients acting as humectants, emollients and preservatives are added to Astroglide water-based lubricants to achieve viscosity, alter water activity, and prevent bacterial contamination, and these will have an impact on pH and osmolality values.

Vaginal moisturisers

Vaginal moisturisers rehydrate dry mucosal tissue and are absorbed into the skin and adhere to the vaginal lining, thereby mimicking natural vaginal secretions. Vaginal moisturisers are intended to be used for the non-hormonal alleviation of vaginal dryness/atrophic vaginitis/vaginal atrophy and they are applied regularly, from every day to once every 2–3 days. Their frequency of use is directly proportional to the severity of atrophy (i.e. the more severe the atrophy, the more frequent the application), and their effects are more long-term than those of lubricants, lasting 2–3 days. Vaginal moisturisers provide this longer relief by changing the fluid content of the endothelium and lowering vaginal pH, thereby maintaining vaginal moisture and acidity. They are therefore particularly beneficial not only for women with  pain during sexual activity, but also for women who are not necessarily sexually active, but experience day-to-day discomfort. As vaginal moisturisers are intended to moisturise the mucosa, the majority contain water. In order for the water to adhere to the mucosa, they also contain either plant-based or similiar polymers. In addition, they contain a wide range of other excipients to provide the appropriate viscosity, pH buffering and preservation, and it is these additional ingredients that will affect the pH and osmolality of the moisturiser.
