Dryness is only part of the story
Painful sex due to menopause is often not simply dryness. It’s caused by VVA (vulva and vaginal atrophy), a common condition that affects many women after menopause. VVA causes vaginal tissue to shrink and become thinner and can result in pain during sex.
You may have tried various lubricants and moisturizers and found they provide some temporary relief. But if your pain is moderate or severe, a prescription treatment may be necessary to address the underlying cause and get the pain relief you need. Speak to your healthcare provider.
