Hello,
For your dryness of vagina, there are a few possibilities. It may be due to lack of foreplay before intercourse, medical conditions such as vaginusmus and pelvic pain, vaginitis, anxiety regarding performance, low estrogen levels, inflammation and infections of vagina, menopause and drugs such as narcotics, tranquilizers, nicotine, alcohol and sedatives.

I feel that pelvic examination by a gynecologist along with cervical swabs and hormone studies are necessary. Please get it done. Also indulge in foreplay before intercourse and use some lubricants like such as KY jelly, or moisturizers or vaginal estrogen creams. Also keep your pelvic area clean and wear cotton undergarments.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
