Many causes...: Infections, cancers, trauma, autoimmune diseases such as lichen sclerosis, gonadal/sex hormone disorders etc...I would say that infections lead the pack here--vaginitis/vaginosis, candidiasis, and std are most common. If you are experiencing symptoms, consult doc for an evaluation. Good luck.
