In brief: Lubrication
With each pregnancy comes a dregree of hormonal imbalances.
A common hormone that declines is estriol, vital for the maintenance of vaginal tissue and lubrication. The gyn journals recommend Estradiol cream, but i prefer estriol because of the abundance of receptors for this natural hormone in the vagina. In europe estriol is found at regular drug stores. Here you have to get it compounded.
