Love-Lube-Lupus...Let's Talk Girls


                  Okay ladies time for some girl talk, sex and dryness. Yep, I said it dryness. A dry vagina isn’t a happy vagina. Grab a glass of wine and let’s get real for a bit.  A vast majority of us ladies dealing with an autoimmune disease unfortunately also end up dealing with dryness issues in various parts of our bodies, and it’s often a frustrating issue to contend with when wanting to have an intimate relationship. 

         We already have several factors to contend with while living with a chronic illness, such as fatigue and pain. Sometimes it just feels easier to give up on our sex lives rather than experience another pain from vaginal dryness, But don’t give up so quickly because I have come across an incredible product I want to share with you to at least cure one of your issues!

         I’ve always had an issue with vaginal dryness for as long as I can remember. Between chemotherapy, medications, and the autoimmune diseases themselves dryness has been a constant issue for me. I can’t even begin to tell you how many lubricants I’ve tried through the years, even ones my doctors have suggested have failed me. Unfortunately all have led to urinary tract infections, yeast infections, or an allergic reaction. Needless to say none of the fore mentioned encouraged my sex life in any way shape or form. I was just about to give up when a lovely fellow spoonie introduced me to SYLK – a natural moisturizing lubricant. I was lucky enough to get a free sample to put to the test, and boy I am glad I did.

         SYLK is an all natural, water based lubricant. SYLK is the only all-natural moisturizing lubricant made from bio-sustainable New Zealand kiwifruit vine extract. SYLK is not made with parabens, harsh chemicals, animal products, fragrances, artificial colors or flavors, which is absolutely critical for those of us with autoimmune diseases because our skin is so sensitive.

         Okay now for the fun part, the trying of SYLK. I will admit I was skeptical but also excited because of my history with so many other lubricants, but I did really want to have an enjoyable sexual relationship with my husband as well.

          The first thing I noticed was there was absolutely no greasy feeling whatsoever to SYLK. Which in my book is a BIG win, I do not enjoy the feel of a slip-n-slide while trying to make love to my husband. With SYLK this was a non-issue. SYLK has a very soft, very natural feeling. Most lubricants are very thick and gooey- not SYLK. With many lubricants your left wiping yourself for what feels like forever after the deed is done, not with SYLK. SYLK actually absorbed into my skin like a light lotion would with no residual greasy feel at all. Often I found that lubricants wouldn’t last through intercourse, I am happy to report SYLK was only needed once. There was no burning, no itching, and no irritation to be found afterwards. I was able to just enjoy making love with my husband without any issue for once.

         I intentionally waited a few weeks before attempting to write this review so that I could wait and see if any infections, irritations, or other issues would arise from the product. I am beyond excited to say NOT ONE SINGLE ISSUE has arisen.

         I would without a doubt recommend SYLK to not only my autoimmune friends but to all my friends. I’ve given some sample to several friends and family whom all have reported the same positive response that I have. SYLK is definitely a win in my book!
