Cut on inner lips of vagina. Post menopausal. Reason?

Hi I am 60 years of age and went through the menopause about 6 years ago no bother! I am thankfuly very healthy, not taking any medication . I am 5 6 tall and weigh approx 64 kg. I have what is like a paper cut in between the inner lips of my vagina . I have never had any problems in that area so find this odd! Is it to do with post menapause and all that goes with it? Perhaps you would give me your view on this Many thanks Doreen

OBGYN 's  Response
After menopause, the mucosa of the vagina becomes thin and dry and cracks just like dry skin during winter. It is not abnormal. Healing is mostly natural; it can be aided by applying coconut oil, herbal creams, avoiding intercourse and taking an antibiotic if needed under the doctor's supervision. Prevention of abrasions over the vagina is by application of lubricating creams. Please have a routine gynecological checkup every 6 months and as soon as possible now. Take care.
