    Hi Kim, Peri-menopause can cause women to experience vaginal dryness, also can cause a narrowing of the vagina as you get further along into menopause(solutions for that) there are personal moisturizers/lubrication for dryness for regular daily use...also lubricants specifically for pre/meno/post women for during sex...if you're still having issues consult your Dr or nurse practitioner for other solutions, Good Luck🍀
