Our expert says:
Karen, at 46 I wonder what your menopausal status is...? Many women experience a drying of the vagina as oestrogen levels diminish and find that oestrogen creams applied regularly inside the vagina assist in maintaining healthy, supple vagina tissue... You'd need a script for this though...so if you want to avoid hormonal treatments, and find that good waterbased lubricants are insufficient (e.g. Sylk, Durex Play, Astroglide), then have a look at the link below - there clearly are some products on the market, but I am unable to comment on their scientific credentials...
