Hi, Anon.

Thanks for your question.

It’s normal for a woman’s hormone levels to dip while she’s on her period. One of the primary hormones responsible for keeping your vagina moist during menstruation is estrogen. When your estrogen levels are depleted, vaginal dryness can be an irritating side effect. Once your period starts, the menstrual flow moistens things again and by the time your period is over it should be back to normal.
