Too dry: Typically, the feelings you describe result from inadequate vaginal lubrication. Some solutions are to try more prolonged foreplay to improve the lubrication associated with sexual arousal or to use an artificial lubricant like Astroglide, KY liquid, or others that are available at the pharmacy.
Dr. Andrea Brand
Specializes in Family Medicine
Dryness, infection: Vaginal dryness and/or infection may result in pain during sex. If lubrication does not help, infection is more likely. Screening for infection with a check up is a good idea.
