For millions of women, vaginal dryness is a real problem that affects and interferes with their day-to-day lives. Vaginal dryness is common and can occur at any age. The effects of vaginal dryness vary from woman to woman, ranging from minor discomfort to painful sexual intercourse. Regardless of the level of discomfort, vaginal dryness can impact your daily life.
Menopause is a natural transition that occurs as women leave their childbearing years. As early as our mid-30’s, oestrogen levels can begin to decline causing hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, mood swings and vaginal dryness. Over time, most symptoms, like hot flashes and night sweats, will go away, but lower oestrogen levels and its effect on skin will continue for the remainder of life. Vaginal dryness continues past menopause and tends to worsen over time.
Replens MD™ is especially helpful in this time of life as it helps to replenish vaginal moisture by attaching to dry, compacted cells and delivering continuous moisture. This allows the vaginal tissues to absorb moisture leaving them hydrated and rejuvenated.
Vaginal dryness, whether mild or severe, can cause pain during intimacy and discomfort, itching and irritation even among those who are not sexually active. This condition can affect menopausal women and continue to for the remainder of their life.
