This is Dr. David
your breast cancer treatments can cause lower estrogen levels and can cause vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness as you know.
I am glad you are using a vaginal estrogen cream for your severe vaginal dryness
this over time can help.
you can also use a personal lubricant like KY jelly which might help increase moisture
or a thick moisturizer on the outside labia like aquafore which could help decrease some of the dryness
because your vaginal mucosa is so thin and dry, it is very easy to bleed as you know.
so don't stress too much about a small bit of blood that you see.
that is most likely from such thin dry vaginal mucosa.
and is not a sign of breast cancer recurrence.
