Do you want to learn more about how Replens MD can help replenish vaginal moisture? Read below for our answers to frequently asked questions.

What causes vaginal dryness?

Nearly every woman will experience vaginal dryness sometime in her life. It is most often associated with the normal decline or fluctuation of the female hormone oestrogen. This can be triggered by childbirth, breastfeeding or menopause.

Dryness can also be caused by taking certain medications, exercising intensively or being under stress. It is also common to experience vaginal dryness when douching, using tampons or at the end of the menstrual cycle.

How does Replens work?

Replens MD works by lining the inside of the vagina, providing moisture, lubrication and comfort. The gel stays in contact with the vaginal walls for several days while the purified water it contains is absorbed.

For most women, Replens MD Vaginal Moisturiser should be used every three days for best results.

When should Replens MD Vaginal Moisturiser be used?

Replens MD can be used any time of day or night. Replens MD TM works best when used on a regular schedule and not just prior to intercourse.

As Rep lens MD delivers long-lasting moisture, there is no need to apply it just prior to intercourse. We recommend using Replens MD TM at least 2 hours prior to intercourse to allow for the gel to be absorbed.

Will Replens MD Vaginal Moisturiser make intimacy more enjoyable?

One of the most common ways that women discover vaginal dryness is during intimacy. When used regularly, Replens MD replenishes your natural vaginal moisture, making intimacy more enjoyable.

Replens' MD formula delivers longlasting moisture so sexual intercourse can be more spontaneous. Since Replens MD does not need to be applied immediately before intercourse, it does not interrupt the moment. Instead, Replens MD provides long-lasting lubrication whenever the moment is right.

  • 6 single use prefilled applicators.
  • A 35g tube with reusable applicator (which allows up to 12 applications)
    *available on prescription.

Does Replens MD Vaginal Moisturiser have any side effects?

Some women notice a residue or discharge after initial use of Replens MD. This is caused by the elimination of dead skin cells. Your body naturally sheds dry vaginal tissue that has built up over time. Replens MD enhances this renewal process and leaves softer, more supple tissue behind.

When used on a regular basis, Replens MD will help prevent the build up of dead skin cells and the discharge should dissipate, you may wish to wait an extra day or two between applications. While use is recommended every three days, you may wish to increase or decrease the amount of time between Replens MD applications to maximise moisture or minimise discharge.

If vaginal irritation occurs, discontinue use. If symptoms persist, contact your doctor. If you experience any other unpleasant effects after using Replens MD please consult your doctor.
