Atrophic Vaginitis

Atrophic vaginitis occurs when the lining of the vagina becomes thin and fragile because of decreased estrogen levels, usually during and after menopause. Symptoms include vaginal dryness, vaginal burning and irritation, pain during sexual intercourse, and/or bleeding after sexual intercourse.
