Treating / Curing Vaginal Soreness, Vagina Dryness and other Vagina issues.

What causes vaginal problems? 

                You might experience changes in the vagina following vaginal 
delivery. Soreness in the vagina is a common problem after childbirth. 
The natural elasticity of the vaginal walls helps to expand the vagina to 
enable childbirth. After delivery, the vagina gradually returns to its 
previous shape. However, episiotomy, a surgical procedure undertaken 
to ease vaginal delivery might injure the vaginal walls. As a result, the 
vagina might lose its natural elasticity and it might become larger than 

                  Changes in the vaginal walls largely occur due to reduced 
estrogen secretion. Vaginal atrophy, a condition characterized by 
thinning and swelling of the vaginal walls usually occurs after 
menopause. It makes sexual intercourse painful and reduces interest in 

Vaginal atrophy starts developing several years prior to menopause. 
In some cases, fluctuations in estrogen secretion during breastfeeding 
might cause vaginal atrophy. It could also develop as a side effect of 
hormonal therapy or chemotherapy for treating breast cancer or other 
forms of cancers. 

The vaginal discharge helps to restore the health of the vagina. Changes 
in the normal vaginal discharge are the first signs of vaginal problems. 
Fungal and bacterial infections are common causes of vaginal 
discomfort. They are associated with excess secretion of vaginal 
discharge. The color of the discharge changes and it become either 
watery or thick like cottage cheese. Vaginal yeast infections are 
frequently associated with foul odor in the vagina. Watery vaginal 
discharge might indicate presence of sexually transmitted diseases such 
as gonorrhea and Chlamydia. 

      Besides changes in vaginal discharge, vaginal infections also cause 
redness, inflammation, pain and itching in the vaginal area. 
          Painful sexual intercourse owing to vaginal disorders reduces sex 

          How to treat vaginal problems naturally

Vaginal disorders are quite common. In some cases, they can be 
prevented and treated naturally. Vaginal dryness, a common complaint 
for painful sexual intercourse and diminished desire for sex, could be 
reduced by lubricating the vagina with a suitable moisturizing agent. 

Creams, sprays or serum could be safely used for lubricating the vagina. 

In addition, by working on the vaginal tissues the components of the 
serum will help to revive the health of the vagina.
Estrogen like plant compounds could help to boost the estrogen reserve 
in your body. Hence, women bothered by vaginal atrophy owing to fall 
in the estrogen level might consider increasing intake of fruits and 
vegetables containing phytoestrogen. Soy is one of the richest sources of 
phytoestrogen. Soy products contain isoflavones that are dietary sources 
of estrogen. Isoflavones derived from soy are used for making 
phytoestrogen supplements. Although phytoestrogen supplements do not 
cause adverse side effect when taken in small doses, it is advisable to 
avoid these supplements if you are suffering from health disorders such 
as endometriosis, uterine fibroids and cancers of the breast, ovary and 
uterus that might worsen by consuming phytoestrogen supplements. 

Flax seeds would supply your body phytoestrogen in the form of lignans. 
Lignans also double as antioxidants that can protect your body from the 
harmful free radicals. Alfalfa, wheat, celery, fennel, oat, rice, sesame 
seeds and sage are moderate sources of phytoestrogen. Estrogen-like 
compounds are also found in apple, citrus fruits, carrot, beet, cherries, 
pomegranate, peas, beans, pumpkin, papaya, potato, eggplant and garlic. 
Increasing consumption of vitamin D might help to reduce vaginal 

 In postmenopausal women, fall in the estrogen level increases
the risk of osteoporosis. To prevent loss of bone density, 
postmenopausal women should increase consumption of dietary 

 Vitamin is needed for aiding calcium absorption. Exposure to 
sunlight aids synthesis of vitamin D naturally. However, for various 
reasons natural synthesis of vitamin D slows down. Deficiency of 
vitamin D increases with age. Excessive use of sunscreen products 
shields the skin from the sun’s radiation. Vitamin D rich foods and 
supplements might help to compensate inadequate synthesis of vitamin 
D in the body. Fish, seafood, cow’s milk and egg are natural sources of 
vitamin D. To prevent vitamin D deficiency, you can consume cereals 
and juices fortified with vitamin D. 

In some cases, DHEA supplements are recommended for treating the 
symptoms of vaginal atrophy by boosting circulation of estrogen. 
However, women engaged in regular sexual activities could avoid 
vaginal atrophy. Blood flow increases in the vaginal area during sexual 
activities. Increase in blood flow helps to nourish the vaginal tissues. 
Vagina could be tightened naturally with the help of Kegel’s exercises. 
These exercises help to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. The 
vagina loses its elasticity when the pelvic floor muscles weaken. Besides 
tightening the vagina, Kegel’s exercises also help to improve bladder

sensitiveness, irritation, tenderness, inflammation, and general 
discomfort. Continued dryness can lead to yeast infections and vaginitis.

virtually duplicates a woman's own moisture. Pueraria Mirifica may also 
naturally stimulate the "Bart Holon" glands to release estrogen, restoring 
a woman's natural lubrication.
