Thank you for your question.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
Vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy is very common after menopause.
The most common recommended treatment with least side effects is the topical estrogen preparation i.e. the intravaginal cream.
It has much less side effects as compared to the oral.
The topical one is very safe with minimal side effects.
Things that you can do at home include the following:
If you do not respond to the OTC medications that I mentioned above then you would definitely require topical estrogens and if you do not respond to the topical then the final step is oral medication.
