Hello Anonymous,

You are not alone. Vaginal atrophy is commonly experienced by post menopausal women.

Vaginal atrophy, also called atrophic vaginitis, is thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to your body having less estrogen. Vaginal dryness and burning, light bleeding after intercourse and discomfort.
