This is Dr. David

are you able to in insert a finger into your vagina? when you wash with soap?

if you can insert a finger into your vaginal when you wash, then you can insert a small vaginal suppository to help with vaginal dryness.

you have to use a lot of KY jelly to lubricate for the vaginal suppository to go in.
