I feel like I have hard bones inside my vagina that are

Customer Question

I feel like I have hard bones inside my vagina that are closing up. I had a checkup and my gyno said nothing was wrong probably due to menopause but that was a year ago. It's getting worse and I can't even get a finger in without almost scraping bone! I'm terrified!

As i understand you are experiencing extreme dryness inside your vagina. Well you have what we call atrophic vagina following menopause and rapid decline in estrogen . You will need topical estrogen creams to help you with thus other then lubricating yourself well ,before having sex. Topical estrogen is what you should use for now and see how it goes.

Let me know if you need any further help

Hi there. Board-certified gyn here. Couple questions - do you still have all your female parts? Any surgeries in the abdomen or vagina? Do you still have periods? Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
