I just recently found a sore on the upper inside of the vagina. It's not very big. Can you give me any information as to what this is or what's causing it? I'm 52 years old and in menopause with hotflashes. I haven't had a menstrual period since January 9, 2008.
One of the most common things that can cause sore places in the vagina is small tears that happen because the tissue becomes very thin and dry, and therefore more fragile. It also might possibly be a lesion caused by bacteria or a virus. Regardless of what we might guess this is, I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you here, so you definitely need to have it evaluated by a gynecologist. See a doctor, and put your mind at ease.
