Maybe TMI but Vaginal dryness while nursing...what can I do?

I haven't posted in a while but...

I am having an AWFUL time with vaginal dryness while nursing my 4 week old. I stopped the PP bleeding at 2weeks, 2 days and I've been so dry and sore from the dryness. My underwear even feel rough on me b/c I'm just so dry. When we DTD we have to use a lot of lube and even then I feel dry. Bleh...Suggestions??

Have you had a pp appt with your OB/midwife? They prescribed some kind of cream for me for the same issue...maybe estrogen cream? I was afraid to use it though and just used coconut oil instead...both for lube while dtd and just whenever I was feeling super dry.

Estrogen cream. I cannot get by without it while nursing. But also- go get checked!! Ds2 is 2 1/2, he weaned at 23 months and it never got better. Apparently I have granulation tissue. If its still an issue After ds3's birth soon here, I will have it removed, & pray it helps!

That's a drawback of breastfeeding....gotta love those crazy hormones!

I found that when we lubed it up, it really helped! KY gel is good.

I had the worst troubles with DS#4. But with DS#5, no problems at all except a little sensitivity in the very beginning, but I oddly enough recovered the quickest down there after having him....go figure since I needed stitches and everything LOL!

Anyway, have you talked with your OB/MW? They will have suggestions as well
