  • 1. You are dry because of breastfeeding.
    2. There are natural lubricants too, at the healthfoodstore.

  • I have heard that BFing makes you dry too I personally haven't had that problem with BFing or with the VCF. I would try a tiny tiny bit of a thicker gel lube.

  • I breastfed for 23 months and never had a dryness problem.

    What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
