Treatment for Vaginal Dryness

Treatments for vaginal dryness depend on your situation so it’s beneficial to visit your doctor or pharmacist to discuss options if vaginal dryness is interfering with your lifestyle, relationships or sex life. Alternatively, you can buy specially formulated products over the counter in pharmacies to relieve the discomfort of your vaginal dryness so you can feel comfortable in your everyday life. Using them regularly can help moisturise and lubricate your vagina, even during sex.


Always read the label.
If you want to report a side effect or quality complaint, please contact your health care professional (e.g. physician or pharmacist), or the Health Products Regulatory Agency (HPRA), or go to the “Contact” menu at
