Vaginal dryness is the inability of the vagina to moisturize itself. This can cause pain during sexual intercourse and general discomfort while walking and performing other physical activity. It can be caused by menopause, use of birth control pills or recent child birth. Vitamin E capsules contain vitamin E oil which can be used to moisturize the vagina, which relieves symptoms of vaginal dryness.

Examine a vitamin E capsule to ensure there are no scratches. If there are scratches on the capsule, it might be a cause irritation in your vagina.

Insert the capsule into your vagina while lying down or standing with one leg elevated. Slowly push the capsule into your vaginal opening. Your vagina will effectively absorb the casing of the capsule, releasing the oil slowly over time.

Pierce one vitamin E capsule with a safety pin, allowing the oil to leak from the hole.

Collect some of the oil from the capsule on your hands and fingers.

Rub the oil on the outside of your vaginal wall to lubricate your labia.


Because vitamin E is an oil, it may cause condoms to break down during sexual intercourse.
