The estrogen decline that leads to menopause causes a loss of moisture, resulting in the development of dryness in your vagina, which can be very painful.
In addition, there is a gradual process of thinning, drying and inflammation of the lining of the vagina, in response to prolonged deprivation of estrogen, which can cause distress and pain during intercourse. Moreover, changes in your vagina’s pH levels increase your susceptibility to vaginal infections. A more alkaline environment is a great breeding ground for the growth of germs, which impacts the neighboring urinary tract, making it prone to urinary infections as well.
