I am – ahem – over 60. We’ll leave it at that. That means a lot of things, one of which is menopause. Now, at this point in my life, I’m on the outside edge of menopause, but I still suffer from some of the symptoms. In fact, one of the things I learned last year from last year’s Google Hangout – Embracing the Change with Dr. Mary Jane Minkin (remember our video?) is that those symptoms can hang on a lot longer than you think. (That explained my occasional encounters with the dreaded hot flash!) During that Hangout, we talked about being of a certain age, menopause, perimenopause, as well as Replens™ Long-Lasting Vaginal Moisturizer and Replens™ Silky Smooth Personal Lubricant because, let’s face it, one of the side effects of menopause can be vaginal dryness. I suffered from it and I bet most of you who are of that age group have suffered from it, too. It wasn’t fun; in fact, it was often painful.
Did you know that Replens™ is the #1 doctor-recommended brand of vaginal moisturizer? And here’s something I didn’t know: vaginal dryness not only happens to those of us who are menopausal. It can happen to new mothers, cancer/chemotherapy patients, and women with dryness due to medication, stress, or tampon use. That’s where Replens™ comes in. It’s estrogen-free and fragrance-free. It helps replenish vaginal moisture, supplements the body’s natural lubrication and lasts for up to three days. It’s long lasting. I love that. It’s estrogen-free, and I really love that as the veteran of a Hormone Replacement Therapy-free menopause (though I know that isn’t possible for everyone.) I certainly didn’t want moments of intimacy to be less than wonderful because of a side effect of menopause. And for the many women who suffer from vaginal dryness for reasons other than menopause, Replens™ products just might be for you.
From the makers of Replens™: Replens™ is the clinically tested, doctor recommended brand of long-lasting vaginal moisturizer. As with dry skin that you experience on your face and hands, regular moisturizing treatment with Replens™ Long-Lasting vaginal moisturizer may be necessary to prevent dryness from recurring. Replens™ Long-Lasting vaginal moisturizer is different from most other lotions or lubricants because it contains a patented bio-adhesive ingredient that allows it to attach to dry vaginal cells and deliver continuous moisture for days.
