Vaginal dryness can occur at any age sometimes due to simple causes like dehydration or use of medications that dry mucous throughout the body (e.g., sudafed). However, the most bothersome cases of vaginal dryness are associated with the loss of naturally produced estrogen that accompanies menopause. Vaginal dryness is a remarkably common symptom of menopause and usually occurs along with other symptoms like pain with intercourse, itching, and difficulty with urination. Yeast and other vaginal infections can increase as a result of vaginal changes due to menopause as well.
