As we glow older, the tissues in our vaginas start to thin, and dryness takes over. A safe solution: Vitamin E vaginal suppositories. Twice a week over several months should do the trick.
You can order them on the net, or check out your pharmacy. Some pharmacists will even compound them for you. (Visit www.iacprx.org to find a compounding pharmacist near you.)
Just make sure the suppositories are made of the complete, not partial, Vitamin E– and pick up a few sanitary pads to go with them.
Another option–calendula, which also comes in suppository form. Studies have shown that extracts of calendula, a type of marigold, have various healing properties.
