You’re ready to go ... except that you’re not.

Things are heating up, but your body’s not keeping pace.

Whether it happens with a partner during sex or solo with your favorite toy, vaginal dryness is never fun. It can result in feeling unsatisfied in the bedroom, experiencing discomfort or even pain during intercourse and masturbation.

If it’s happened to you, you’re not alone. In fact, 17% of women ages 18 to 50, and 25% of women ages 50 to 59 have experienced vaginal dryness during sex, according to Women’s Health Concern.

Once you’ve ruled out with your doctor that the cause isn’t anything more serious, the problem could be as simple as adding a little extra moisture — down there and in general.

“Think of how your mouth feels when you haven’t had enough water,” said Dr. Heather Jeffcoat, an LA-based physical therapist who specializes in vaginal discomfort. “Your vagina is just as unhappy.”

But it’s important to remember that there is no “norm” for natural vaginal lubrication from arousal, either.

“Some women naturally don’t produce much vaginal fluid,” Jeffcoat said.

Personal lubricants are used to reduce friction, ease penetration and stimulate the senses. They come in a wide variety of formulas, fragrances and even flavors — so it’s important to do your research before deciding which lube will be best for you or your partner.

None of these tasks were easy for me before meeting Heather. Eight years ago my car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer that was estimated to have been speeding. I spent 3 years working with different PTs and Drs...

      While pregnant with my twins, Heather took care with keeping me on my feet and pain free. She saved my back, my sanity and the holidays! I would recommend her to every “mom” looking to stay on her feet during pregnancy and post-partum. -- T.C.
