Do you want to learn more about how Replens MDTM 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 MDTM work?

Replens MDTM 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.

How often should Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser be used?

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

However, depending on the severity of your dryness, Replens MDTM can be used more or less frequently, as necessary. Replens MDTM is safe to use daily.

When should Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser be used?

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

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

Will Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser make intimacy more enjoyable?

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

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

Can Replens MDTM be used as birth control?

No. Replens MDTM does not contain spermicide. It is not a contraceptive.

Can you use Replens MDTM before getting a pap smear?

We recommend stopping the use of Replens MDTM four days before getting a pap smear.

Should I use Replens MDTM during my period?

Replens MDTM is safe for use anytime, but some women may experience discharge if used during their period.

It is best to resume use of Replens MD TM after your flow completely stops.

Is Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser compatible with condoms?

Yes, Replens MDTM is compatible with natural rubber latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane condoms.

Does Replens MDTM come in more than one package type?

Yes, Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser is available in:

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

Does Replens MDTM Vaginal Moisturiser have any side effects?

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

When used on a regular basis, Replens MDTM 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 MDTM 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 MDTM please consult your doctor.
