Without context I don't believe your question can be answered properly: psychogenic? Hormonal?

Hi,
Vaginal dryness, also known as atrophic vaginitis, is a common condition in women. Although it is most common in women who are postmenopausal, vaginal dryness can occur in women of any age.

Hope it helps...
