Vaginal Dryness

Some medicines can cause vaginal dryness.

For example, vaginal dryness is a common side effect of hormonal medicines that are used to treat breast cancer. It can be a side effect of hormonal medicines that are used to treat gynecological conditions such as endometriosis.

Vaginal dryness can also result from the same kinds of medicines that result in mouth dryness -- examples are antihistamines, some antidepressants, and medicines to treat diarrhea or an overactive bladder.

Do you think your vaginal dryness might be a side effect of one of your medicines?

Yes, it might be a side effect of my medicine.

No, I don't take any of these medicines.
