Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
This is usually not something to worry about and is usually due to vaginal atrophy that is due to lack or hormones which is very common at your age.
However, having said that, I would still like that you should be seen to make sure we rule out anything serious.
Let me know if you have more questions.
