At the same time, the lactic acid it contains helps to restore the vaginal pH to its normal acidic value.
How do I use it?
- To enhance the healing ability of damaged or atrophic vaginal mucosa: One application daily for 7 days, before sleep.
- As a means of prevention, especially during menopause: One application daily for 3 days, every 10 days, before sleep.
The dosage can be modified on the advice of a doctor.
Hold the vaginal applicator on its wide side. With the nozzle facing the ground, shake it to move the contents toward the nozzle. While holding the applicator in this position, rotate and open the protective cover. Insert the nozzle deep into the vagina, preferably while lying down, and push the applicator to insert the contents into the vagina. Remove the applicator without stopping pressing on its walls. Any amount that comes out of the vagina after application can be easily removed with a dry tissue.

Each question corresponds to a need. That is why it is worth answering it.
Why is it important to get significant amounts of lactic acid in the vagina at any age?
Lactic acid is the factor that shapes the acidic environment in the vagina.
During reproductive age it is released by the lactic acid bacteria of the normal vaginal flora after the metabolism of the glycogen they use as food. The acidic vaginal environment is pleasant and enhances the action of lactobacilli while at the same time limiting the growth of other pathogenic microorganisms.
However, beyond the reproductive age, such as during menopause, maintaining acidic conditions in the vagina can be a means of preventing infections. At this stage of a woman's life, vaginal pH regulators that provide ready-made lactic acid and directly form the required acidity in the vagina can help immediately.
The area of my vagina presents an intense itching, irritation and a burning sensation. What may it be?
Pruritus (itching), irritation and burning sensation are clinical manifestations that can be observed in conditions of different etiology in the vaginal area. They are usually observed in cases of infection of various etiologies that coexist there with increased vaginal secretions with or without odor. The presence of these symptoms without the presence of hypersecretion may be due to the occurrence of vaginal dryness.
In any case, the correct and safe diagnosis and treatment is performed only through the gynecologist after a series of diagnostic tests (colposcopy, vaginal discharge culture, etc.), a practice that is recommended to follow every time you notice changes in the wider area.
What is vaginal dryness and vulvovaginal atrophy? What are the most common causes of vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy?
Vaginal dryness is a consequence of the lack of necessary moisture in the vaginal mucosa. The most common causes for the appearance are the decrease of estrogen due to age, breastfeeding, the use of cleansing fluids that contain strong cleansing or antiseptic agents, smoking, diabetes, etc. Symptoms of vaginal dryness are itching, burning, irritation without the presence of hypersecretion and the appearance of difficulty and pain during sexual intercourse.
Vaginal atrophy is a consequence and continuation of vaginal dryness. The intensity of the symptoms is greater while the surface of the vaginal epithelium is so fragile that it is very easily injured resulting in bleeding.
How can I relieve the symptoms of vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy without the use of hormones?
Relieving the symptoms of vaginal dryness or atrophy as well as slowing their progression, if the cause is aging, can be achieved by using products that ensure locally high levels of moisture. The most popular and very effective factor that naturally achieves high levels of moisture and contributes to the regeneration and enhancement of the healing capacity of tissues is the hyaluronic acid that normally exists in our body. As a hydrophilic substance it retains a large amount of water creating a film on the surface of the vaginal mucosa. In this way it relieves for a long time from the manifestations of dryness while at the same time it acts as a catalyst for the repair and regeneration of the tissues.
For how long can I use products to relieve the symptoms of vaginal dryness or vaginal atrophy safely?
Products that exert their action through the use of ingredients that do not have hormonal or pharmacological action can be used for as long as possible and desired, without requiring any interruption or concern for their safety.
A key factor for maximum effectiveness and satisfaction from the use of products in this category is the consistency in the regular application according to the instructions for use of each product.
Insufficient vaginal lubrication & pain during intercourse. What should I look out for when choosing a personal lubricant?
Insufficient lubrication and pain during sexual intercourse are conditions that can be observed in both young and older women. The causes can be of different nature and are usually related to intercourse stress or the presence of vaginal dryness. Using a lubricant significantly improves the problem. It is important, however, to use lubricants that closely resemble the composition of normal vaginal secretions so as not to disturb the natural balance of the area. For this reason their composition should be based on water and not on petroleum products such as Vaseline and paraffin oil, not to have artificial colors and fragrances as well as preservatives.
Hot flushes. What are they and how can I reduce them in a non-hormonal, natural way?
Hot flashes are the sudden feeling of rising body temperature that is mainly associated with menopause and mainly affects women.
During menopause, hot flashes are usually more intense on the face, neck and chest and can cause redness of the skin. They may be accompanied by increased heart rate and intense sweating followed by a feeling of cold. Their frequency varies from person to person, but they generally last a few minutes and occur mainly at night. The exact cause remains unclear, but is believed to be the result of hormonal changes in menopausal features and increased sensitivity of the body temperature control system, which becomes more sensitive to small changes.
However, in both women and men, the problem can also be associated with real diseases, such as hyperthyroidism, prostate cancer, or diseases related to the hypothalamus or pituitary gland. Hot flashes can also be caused by cancer treatments.
Reducing hot flashes as well as night sweats can be achieved by using dietary supplements of plant-based ingredients that contain phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens mimic the good effects of estrogen effectively and safely without any side effects as they have no estrogenic effect.
It can be used without interruption for as long as desired.
In any case, the correct and safe diagnosis and treatment is performed only through the gynecologist after a series of diagnostic tests, a practice that is recommended to follow every time something worries you in your body.
