In brief: Poor lubrication

After menopause or during breastfeeding the vagina senses the loss of estrogen.
The vaginal tissue becomes thin and dry. Vaginal estrogen can easily fix this. Some women experience poor lubrication. Replens is a nice over the counter product which can help with dryness. Ky jelly or astroglide can help with lubrication during sexual activity.
