Has your physician checked your hormone levels? As women advance into menopause and estrogen is depleted, the vaginal tissues become very dry and irritated. Often if women are given vaginal estrogen (can be bio-identical), the vaginal tissues become balanced and healed up and the irritation goes away. Please check with your physician on this, if you still feel it is the tape causing problems, it would be a good idea to seek advice from a urogynecologist.
