How do vaginal lubricants work to treat vaginal dryness?

They lubricate: They do not treat the cause, they make it so you are lubricated. In many peri-menopausal and post menopausal women , the dryness is caused by lack of estrogen, so a small dose of vaginal estrogen twice a week can cure this problem. Sometimes lubricants are also used. If you are younger , you need to have your estrogen levels checked as they may be too low and this can be treated., so see your gyn.

Intravaginal estroge: You're a bit young but women going through menopause (http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/menopause/ds00119) often complain of vaginal dryness due to loss of estrogen leading to atrophic vaginitis (http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/vaginal-atrophy/ds00770). Replacement w/some form of vaginal estrogen often relieves this dryness w/o risks associated w/oral estrogen.
