In brief: That

That can definitely be related to menopause.
You can try over-the-counter soothing vaginal preparations such as vagisil or others; ask your pharmacist for a recommendation. If this is a brand new problem or you have discharge of course then discuss this with your doctor. If over-the-counter preparations don't help, your doctor may need to give you a prescription product. In addition, avoid hot baths or wearing nylon underwear.
