This is very personal but I know there is a lot of women who could benefit from this.
I have had so much trouble with vaginal dryness. I have tried all the regular things like Replens, vagifem and that and ended up with vaginal infections and a Uti. So I looked on line for something natural and found that some women tried virgin coconut oil and vitamin e capsules for the dryness. So I tried it. For the coconut oil I just scraped some on a spoon and put it in my fingers and put some in my vagina and wipe the rest on my vulva. For the vitamin E just put the capsule right in your vagina and it dissolves. For me the vitamin E is good at night when I sleep because it is a little oily. But the coconut oil is fine. It smells very lightly of coconut so don't worry about it. I am very sensitive to everything so this I have no reaction and no more dryness. Oh yeah, It's also good to use in sex too! Also the coconut you can use as many times as you want and the Vitamin E I read you could use one in the morning and one at night.
Coconut oil is a cure-all, and great for more than just this. I know that natural vaginal suppositories are made with it. It doesn't surprise me that these two oils work well for you. You just want to make sure you get filtered coconut oil. Though you can use the stuff that's sold to cook with, just as long as you get the most refined kind you can find. It's just not as refined as the "cosmetic" kind.
Thank you because I have trted the lubrication but that break me out. Di you mean a real coconut from market? And how many times apply vitamin e do break the capsules or just insert thxs for great method.
I totally agree! I've been using virgin food grade coconut oil for 3 months now. Nightly. After my shower I moisturize my entire body and then my vagina. It has helped greatly, and spontaneous sex is only an issue occasionally. Once in a while I may have to add a little more coconut oil for lubrication. The all natural and other lubrications for sex were always stinging when I applied them. Not so with the coconut oil. By the way, this summer, when the coconut oil was warm and fully liquid ( it is hard when the temperature is 72 or less) I spilled a good amount on my cotton, expensive, bedspread. The next morning there was no sign of any stain. I was getting UTI's quite often before I began my coconut regimen, as well as cranberry juice daily. So far so very good.
