Evidence based: I am not aware of any evidence that would support that. Birth control pills would be providing adequate hormonal balance so hormonal deficiency is not likely the issue causing vaginal dryness. Replens or Prevaleaf Oasis are over the counter moisturizers that you could try. A gyn exam evaluation for other vulvar conditions would be a good idea
