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.
