Thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls is known as vaginal atrophy, and generally occurs after menopause due to decreased levels of estrogen. Vaginal atrophy is accompanied by urinary symptoms and painful intercourse. The term Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) is used to refer to this combination of issues. Over-the-counter treatments, such as vaginal moisturizers or water-based lubricants, topical estrogens, and vaginal dilators are a few treatment options for GSM.
