No, your genitals goes back to pre-pubertal conditions. Cervix closed, very little cervical mucus, no observable cycle in the cervix height, firmness, mucus or openness, no PMS, thinning vaginal wall, labia and shrinking clitoris. Of course there are exceptions to this, especially if you do hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

If you do not do so already, this is the time to start masturbating to keep your vagina and vulva healthy and functional. Just make sure you use lubricant and don't rub too hard. The sexual arousal cycle, orgasm and the hormones from orgasms does wonders for you and keeps your vagina healthy and functioning.

Take care.
