Surprising Reasons Why You’re Horny But Still Feel “Dry” Down There

Our body does many wonderful things – one of which is that our vagina self-lubricates.

Lubrication makes such a world of difference when it comes to sex. It makes sex so much more pleasurable, easy and fun.

However, sometimes you can be super horny, but you’re not getting wet ~ down there ~ at all. It can be frustrating when your mind tells you one thing and your body another. Here are some surprising (and common) reasons why you’re not getting wet down there.

It could be a side effect of medication

Medication for common illnesses like flu and even mental wellness drugs may cause you to be dry down there. Why are you craving for sex when you’re ill anyway? If that’s the case, stay in bed, give yourself a break and you can get wet any time after you get off your medication. For people with long-term medication especially for mental health, talk to your doctor about alternative drugs that may improve your sexual wellbeing.

Your hormones are out of whack

Your body may be experiencing a decrease in estrogen levels, especially during menopause, after childbirth or during breastfeeding. If you’re a smoker, you may experience this too as smokers tend to have lower levels of estrogen hormones than non-smokers.

You may be feeling guilty about having sex

Growing up in a conservative culture, we were never taught anything about sex – anything at all. In fact, we may have been told that it’s shameful. If your mind is against it, your body will be too, no matter how much you want it. It’s important to change this mindset and seek a therapist to help you through your issues.

Maybe your man just isn’t that good in bed

Oops… did we write that out loud? This time, it’s not him, it’s you. If what he’s doing isn’t just working for you and you find yourself thinking about your celebrity crush, maybe you should think about telling him that it’s his problem too. He won’t take it lightly, we’re sure.
