Brief Answer:
Hormone variation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for additional information.

This pain is likely to be due to variation in hormones at menopause.

Menopause leads to variation in hormones and especially oestrogen deficiency which causes such symptoms.

This can be corrected by HRT therapy. If you are willing, you can discuss and start HRT under your doctor's guidance.

Let me know if you need anymore clarification.
