Sex is painful!

QSince start­ing the Pill, my vagina has felt dry and sex is painful. What can I do? Yvette, Tod­mor­den

Anat­u­ral sex hor­mones such as oe­stro­gen trig­ger your vagina to make lu­bri­ca­tion. the ar­ti­fi­cial hor­mones in con­tra­cep­tive pills can in­ter­fere with this, leav­ing you dry. if lube doesn’t help, a change of pill or a dif­fer­ent method of con­tra­cep­tion might be the an­swer.
