In brief: Common

Vaginal dryness and atrophy in menopause is extremely common and may result in burning, irritation, and pain with intercourse.
Common treatments include vaginal estrogen (creams and pills) or a unique laser treatment known as MonaLisa Touch. Treatment is based on how bothersome the symptoms are.

In brief: Probably

I think its signs of menopause.
See your gynecologist to examine and of course do a pap smear. If vaginal dryness is the only problem there are some local creams ( premarin) that may keep you comfortable for a while.
