Dry Vulva

Hi there. I'm a newbie here.


Wondering if this is common or not...  I am 38 years old; in my 20's upon sexual arousal I would naturally lubricate. It was about 8 years ago I discovered that my body can no longer do so.  Also, my Vulva area feels dry in general.  


Any response is apperciated.


PS: Yes, Astroglide is my friend.

Have you had the opportunity to discuss this with your doctor?
