You are right to investigate but it could also be atrophy. Are you on HRT?  

If it is back, don't despair, it's far from the end of options.

Leanne I'm sorry to hear you are going through this worry again. I haven't suffered from the same symptoms as you but I just wanted to say I hope it all turns out to be something easily treated.
