Menopause brings with it certain unwelcome vaginal changes. Because of the drop of levels of estrogen in your body, you may experience dryness. Also, the tissues lining your vagina and urethra (opening to your bladder) become thin and less taut. These changes may contribute to burning and itchiness. You may also experience a higher incidence of urinary tract or vaginal infections. The good news is you can expect to experience fewer issues with vaginal discharge. The flip side is that your sex life may be less comfortable without lubrication.
