Brief Answer:
Atrophic vaginits,consult your Gynecologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to HCM,

I can understand your concerns,

Most probably vaginal pain is due to dryness of vagina.It appears during menopause due to deficiency of estrogen hormone.This makes infection to set easily.


I would advice you to consult your Gynecologist for vaginal examination and further evaluation. You can start local estrogen cream if needed ,
under your Gynecologist guidance.

Hope this helps,
Feel free to ask further.

Take care,
Thanks
