why is my vagina very dry?
ok i have had tonsillitis for the past 5 days and anyway about 4 days ago i had a bath and used soap around the outside of my vagina, i may have got some inside by accident but i'm not sure. the next day it was sore, a lil swollen and very dry.. i had another bath and cleaned myself with just water and tried to get any soap out. some of it came out. after this it was still dry etc.

i think that the soap is probably irritating my vagina and it is nothing serious because its not hurting anymore, its not itching and it isnt swollen anymore. but it is still very dry

i tried masturbating the other night to make me wet, after this usualy i would become wet but it seemed like the lubrication didnt exit me properly? i really dont know! it all seems normal, except for the fact its dry.

if i keep cleaning with water everyday will it become lubricant again in time?

please help if this makes some sense to you

sounds like you could be allergic to the soap you use, and the vagina is a sensitive area or it could be antibiotics that is if you were you on antibiotics for the tonsillitis, I know antibiotics have dried me out for a little while (not for very long).  

If you are really worried you should go and see your gynecologist or family GP.

You should really really use body wash, not soap. They are just as good, but soap tends to really dry your skin, esp if your using it down there hun. Try something like softsoap, or suave...it might make a HUGE difference. good luck
