What is Regelle
Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser is a long-lasting and effective moisturiser to treat the vaginal dryness. Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser is one such product which will work to give you lasting hydration where you need it the most, easing the symptoms by hydrating the cells which need it. It is also non-hormonal so will not interfere with any treatment you might be having, which contains hormones.
Vaginal dryness can occur in women of different ages but is most common in those who are experiencing hormonal changes which can come as a result of the ageing process and menopause or as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Other lifestyle factors can also influence it, such as using perfumed soaps or other products which upset the natural balance in your intimate area. This is a list of possible causes of your vaginal dryness:
- You are menopausal
- You are breastfeeding
- You are taking contraceptive pills
- You are taking antidepressants
- You are having a hysterectomy
- You are having certain cancer treatments, e.g. chemotherapy
- You are experiencing changes in your hormone levels
- You have an underlying medical condition, e.g. diabetes or Sjogren’s syndrome
- You have been using perfumed soaps, washes, or douches in or around the vagina
This dryness results in your vagina being less lubricated than it ordinarily would be and can cause pain and irritation. It may become sore, and you might have difficulty, and it may hurt to have sexual intercourse. It can even cause itchiness if not treated.
There are many products available which will help to alleviate the problem and help in different ways dependent on the cause of it. For example, unperfumed soaps might be the solution if heavily fragranced ones are what is causing your issue in particular. However, for those who have a more fundamental problem, it is likely you will need to use Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser to restore the natural moisture in the area.

How does Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser work?
Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser has a clinically proven formula and easy-to-use pre-filled tubes allowing it to get right to the root of the issue. It will continue to deliver moisture for up to 3 days for normal levels of dryness.
It is a pH balanced and hormone-free, moisturising gel that is designed to work in 3 ways to relieve from vaginal dryness, itching and discomfort. These 3 ways are:
- It works instantly by coating the inside of the vagina to provide immediate relief from dryness and the discomfort associated with it
- Regelle will deliver a continuous level of moisture which will be absorbed by the dehydrated cells and will help them to regain their natural elasticity and structure.
- It will help the dry, dead skin cells to naturally shed themselves, which may result in some discharge. This leaves the vagina moisturised, healthy and comfortable, and the discharge will stop once the natural health and balance is restored.
How long do I use Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser for before I notice a difference?
Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser is designed to deliver instant relief from some of the symptoms of vaginal dryness, and you should find that your comfort levels improve almost immediately. This should happen after the very first dose administered. With continued use as directed, you will notice a general improvement in vaginal health, and the discharge which is likely to occur with initial use will discontinue. You might also find that continued use will mean that you do need to use it as frequently as you do at the start.
What are the side effects of Regelle Vaginal Moisturiser?
As with any product to be applied to the skin or sensitive areas of the body, there can be some side effects experienced, although these are not experienced by many people. As mentioned, you might notice a discharge or residue with usage, and this is harmless. It is the body secreting the dead skin cells, leaving the softer, healthier tissue beneath and should stop after several applications.
If any other side effects are experienced, you must discontinue use immediately and speak to your pharmacist at Click Pharmacy or medical professional.
