It has taken me a while to put this post together. Honestly I was a bit embarrassed to write a post about vaginal dryness. I was offered a great opportunity to review Replens and at first I baulked at the idea of doing a review. What would I write about? How would I write it without totally embarrassing myself and possibly my readers. But, whether I like it or not, I am not getting any younger. In my mind I am still 20, but my body feels......well older the 20.
I have not hit my menopausal part of life yet, but I have started having the other symptoms of getting older. My skin is dryer, age spots are slowly rearing their ugly selves, aches and pains are setting in, and embarrassing vaginal dryness has become a problem.
Other Reasons for vaginal dryness include:
- Tampon use
- Excessive exercise
My husband and I have always had a great sex drive, but after 25 years I find that I have slacked off due to the discomfort of intercourse. Not only is it uncomfortable for me it is for my husband as well. So why wouldn't want to try something that will make life more enjoyable? So, I stopped being stubborn and gave Replens a try.
I am not really sure what the big deal was in my head. I am so happy that I tried Replens and being with my husband is much more enjoyable!
What is Replens?
Replens is non-hormonal and helps to alleviate vaginal dryness symptoms equivalent to that of prescription hormones, helping to replenish vaginal moisture and providing long-lasting results. When used regularly, Replens helps to replenish vaginal moisture making for comfortable, enjoyable intimacy.
With comfortable, easy-to-use applicators, Replens is different from other lotions or lubricants because it contains a bioadhesive that allows it to attach to dry, compacted cells and deliver continuous moisture until those cells are naturally regenerated (about every 3-5 days). It can be used approximately every 3 days for long-lasting hydration of dry vaginal tissues so you can feel more like yourself again. Replens is available in pre-filled applicators or as a tube with a reusable applicator.
