Atrophy: At 49 you are getting low on estrogen which will cause vaginal dryness. Estrogen vaginal therapy can help. Also, lubricants like olive, coconut, or any pure vegetable oil can be used to lubricate for intercourse.

Tube to the uterus: The vagina is tube that connects the vulva (the outer part of the female genitals) to the uterus, or womb. It is between the urethra (where urine comes out) and the anus (where bowel movements come out). When someone talks about a woman having sex, they are often referring to penetration (with a penis, finger, or sex toy) of the vagina.
