Hello,
Radiotherapy also makes your vagina become less stretchy and narrower. To try to prevent or minimise this, it is important to start using vaginal dilators after your treatment. To minimize pain, use a lubricant jelly while using dilators or try having regular intercourse. You can also get local estrogen therapy like rings or creams prescribed.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
