Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

She may be suffering from atrophic vaginitis along with a possible uterine descent which can exert pressure over the perineum while standing or walking and combined together can cause discomfort.

Please take her to a gynecologist for a local examination and a high vaginal swab culture to rule out any infection.
