Women have different timings when it comes to sexual responses. In women over 40, it takes 1 to 3 minutes for them to get wet, while it takes 10 to 30 seconds for younger women. Other things that may affect response time include:
Like in men, women get wet when blood flows to the genitals. This means that the clitoris and the vulva swell, making the vagina react by releasing fluid and becoming wet. So if you’re a constant smoker, what it does is to block the small arteries that carry blood to your vagina.
Yeast infection affects your ability to get wet by messing with the bacterial balance of your vagina. During intercourse, the vagina becomes more and more irritated the more the woman has sex. Although the symptoms are not always the same with every woman.
Flu, allergy, and asthma medications can cause your vagina to go dry during sex. Hence, you should do all you can to keep yourself healthy so that you don’t have to take some of these medications. But if it happens that you get sick, you may switch to a more natural remedy. But speak to your doctor about it first.
Hormones are also responsible for dry vagina during sex. The hormone that triggers the release of fluid in the vagina is affected during menopause, perimenopause, after childbirth, or during breastfeeding. Also, the treatment of cancer can affect the level of this hormone.
Guilt Or Insecurities
Your body responds to your state of mind. If you’re feeling guilty or dirty about sex, your vagina might not get wet. This guilt comes in the form of thoughts where you’re thinking that having sex is wrong, so your body listens.
