This is really stressing me out i'd appreciate any advice. I'm 22 and have been experiencing vaginal dryness for a few months. I was on rigevidon from march and stopped taking it 4 weeks ago. I was on it a few years ago but don't know if i suffered from dryness then. 4 weeks after stopping I'm still bone dry when i'm turned on! I'm really worried because i used to get extremely wet just from cuddling but now nothing what can i do?

Why don’t you try moisturising and use lube

I'm going to but I'm concerned as to why I can't produce my own any more ;/

Pop along to the doctor for a chat if you are concerned.

Are you feeling horny/aroused? How are your stress and general wellbeing levels?

In itself it's nothing to worry about - just get out the lube and go with the flow. Your body is not a machine and sometimes, particularly when it comes to sexual stuff, doesn't play ball.

Agree with lube. Something anyone having sex should have available and handy! Just make sure that its compatible with condoms/sex toys if you are using them.

You get less wet as you get older. Getting stressed about this can make things worse. As long as you have no other symptoms I'd crack on with the foreplay/oral/sex with lube and see what happens. Getting worried about it will make it worse!

I started taking rigevidon in January. Only took the first pack, had the same side effects so I stopped taking it. I still suffer from vaginal dryness even now, and it's november and I've never touched a contraceptive hormone since. You can always talk to your GP, mine weren't very useful and they just said use lube although it is quite worrying when we aren't anywhere near menopause and are suffering vaginal dryness. It is really disheartening, I know how you feel. My vaginal dryness has started to get better months onward, I heard it does take several months/years for hormones to reverse.

I've been off my contraceptive pills since February. My hormones are still messed up from it. Still suffer from vaginal dryness. So in my experience it is true

No. Two issues that may or may not be related. You cannot say one caused the other, you cannot imply causality.

These false associations are why people believe that homeopathy works or lucky pants help England win the football....

It is quite reasonable that the pill (that gets out of your body in hours) has absolutely NOTHING to do with the problem. It could even be a psychological issue (you think it will be dry so you worry and it is)

Birth control pills DO cause dryness. Not to everyone, but it's definitely a thing. Just make sure you drink enough water everyday, this is what I can suggest. Good luck!

Are you still getting your cuddling ? Give your partner hint you want extra affection. I get wet from my bf cuddles but not all time.

Okay, my own GP told me that it takes time for your body to return to normal hormone production after stopping the pill. Some people have to wait months for their period to return after stopping. It's not a psychological issue.
