lubricants have not helped...is there a non-painful way to re-open the labia minora due to vaginal dryness?

Dear An_254850,
You health care provider could prescribe you some topical estrogen cream (estrace or premarin) which you can apply with your fingertip to the labia-and this will help soften the tissue, and make it more pliable, and able to separate it.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
