The clitoris, like most other body parts, can atrophy, become dry, wrinkled and shrivel up. The causes of this are many and range from menopause, infections and even from lack of use. Effective treatment is generally simple and will not require surgery. When a clitoris is dry it has numerous detrimental effects that include causes of negative self-esteem of self-body image from the perception that the clitoris is ugly and any person seeing it will feel the same way, reduction of enjoyment of sex due to the shrinkage of the clitoris and lowering of self-esteem, itchiness, rash and infection due to the vaginal fluid not being able to flush away bacterial and yeast infections.
In more youthful ladies, if you feel torment as the penis is endeavoring to enter the vagina, it is perhaps because of vaginismus (see tight and excruciating vagina). More severe pain might be because of a penis or sex toy touching the wall of the womb, or ovaries, and having intercourse in an alternate position may offer assistance. If pain continues it’s a smart thought to see a gynecologist in case it is an ovarian growth or something similar.
At its worst clitoral and vaginal dryness can cause the sufferer depression, anxiety and sexual psychological problems that would then require counseling to fully recover. The clitoris like any other body part requires blood flow to keep it healthy. In most cases the simple act of female masturbation or invigorating the clit by way of sexual attention with a partner or sex toy will suffice. However, in many cases, when females are menopausal or after menopause vaginal fluids do not flow as freely so lubricant should be used assist whilst arousing it. In most cases this simple and enjoyable act will awaken the clitoris and deter clitoral shrinkage and dryness.
Unfortunately in many cases the reason why women do not masturbate is from an early age either parents or carer’s discouraged it, making it seem like an act that was dirty or taboo. These pre-conceived prejudiced behaviors are then difficult to overcome. Masturbation in females should be encouraged, is healthy and a natural part of life. Clitoral health should start from an early age. Parents and carer’s should teach their children from an early age that it is essential to clean the clitoris and vagina with a soap that has essential oils in them to stop dryness. Liquid soaps are generally of better quality than a soap bar. After showering or bathing the application of a topical cream such as sorbolene cream will ensure the labia and clitoris remain in good health and will deter many yeast and other infections
In more seasoned ladies, especially the individuals who are post-menopausal, your vagina might be dry and excited because of an absence of estrogen – a hormone that keeps the vagina wet. A decent grease or estrogen cream can offer assistance. But many women were not taught how to look after the vagina and clitoris from an early age or after menopause, through no fault of their own now suffer from labial or clitoral dryness and shrinkage. The effective forms of Clitoral rehabilitation take the forms of vacuum system that promotes blood flow through the affected area causing it to be engorged, invigorated and enlarged, topical creams that will lubricate the clitoris and often with added with ingredients such as l-arginine that will again cause the clitoris to become enlarged with increased blood flow and if clit degeneration is not too severe by the simple act of female masturbation.
Another basic reason for a dry vagina at any age is absence of excitement. As you get more seasoned it can take more time to end up physically excited. Absence of adequate foreplay before entrance, either with your accomplice’s penis, fingers or sex toys, will bring about difficult sex. This occasionally turns out to be uncomfortable to the point that a lady may wind up staying away from sex by and large.
Sex doesn’t generally need to include entrance. There are numerous pleasurable methods for being sexual with or without a partner, and experimentation can be enjoyable. Invigorating your erogenous zones, using either a vibrator, with with your partner or through masturbation, might energize your clitoris. Sex toys are not just for the youthful, and can be purchased on the web if you feel reluctant about heading off to a sex shop.
