Hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Menopause leads to decrease in the level of sex hormones.thus making the vagina dry and hence the intercouse painful.HRT helps in preventing vaginal dryness.But always take HRT under medical supervision.Consult a gynaecologist and it can be helped out.
Take care
