How to treat vaginal dryness during sex?

Hi,
I am a 21 year old female.
Since last August, I have been experiencing vaginal dryness during sex. I can get wet during foreplay but when It comes to sex I go very dry, making sex impossible.
The reason I am only seeking help now is that the relationship i was in turned into a long distance relationship and then we split up so I was not having sex regularly. It has happened with my ex boyfriend, both casual partners and my current boyfriend.

I am otherwise healthy and have regular periods.

Hello,

The dryness during sex can be overcome by using adequate lubricant gel before having sex. These gels are easily available over the counter at pharmacies.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
