In brief: Lack of estrogen
As women age, for example after menopause, their bodies make less estrogen.
This can lead to vaginal dryness. A doctor can evaluate if a topical vaginal estrogen cream could be right for you.

In brief: Depends
Sometimes a vaginal infection will cause dry vagina, or lack of estrogen if you are no longer having menstrual cycles.
This can be a problem for women who are breastfeeding, too.
