Brief Answer:
I would be happy to help!

Detailed Answer:
I will assume that she is "post-menopausal" and around your age. If this is the case, the cause of this problem is related to her lack of estrogen that occurs after the age of menopause. When this is present, there is atrophy / thinning of the vagina with narrowing of the opening. This should be addressed by her OB/GYN and can be treated with:

1. Vaginal estrogen
2. Vaginal dilators

I hope that this helps!
