I am sorry you are having such bad vaginal lining thinning

this can often come after menopause when your body's estrogen levels decline and you can develop vaginal atrophy

the best treatment for this is vaginal estrogen creams and vaginal estrogen suppositories which can be inserted into the vaginal canal and deliver estrogen directly to the area.

this is a prescription treatment so you have to see your doctor about it for a prescription.

let me know if you have questions.
