A symptom of perimenopause, vaginal dryness, is caused by estrogen levels dropping. The vaginal tissues start drying and become less elastic.

As estrogen levels go down, the vaginal walls get thinner and lose some of their elasticity. The vagina becomes dryer and takes longer to become lubricated.
