Vaginal Dryness
I am 56 years old and had a total hysterectomy 2 years ago.
I used Synopause which is off the market and now use Vagifem
could the Vagifem be the cause of my vaginal dryness and burning especially with intercourse? as no over the counter lubrication seems to help?

The cause of the dryness is the menopausal oestrogeb deficiency. Oestrogen creams will help with this. Perhaps you will have to use them more frequently for a while.
