What is Replens MD Moisturiser
There are certain products available which will help to alleviate the symptoms caused by vaginal dryness, including specific soaps, lubricants and moisturisers such as Replens MD Longer Lasting Vaginal Moisturiser. Replens MD Vaginal Moisturiser is a hormone-free moisturiser which comes in a gel format and will help to relieve your symptoms of vaginal dryness such as irritation and painful intercourse. It will help to restore the natural moisture levels in your vagina to bring you comfort.
Vaginal dryness is a problem typified by your vagina being less lubricated than what you would classify as normal and is most often caused by changes in your hormone levels. It is particularly common in women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or who are going through the menopause as part of the natural ageing process. However, it can also be caused by other lifestyle factors such as changes in the products you use in your intimate area, such as heavily perfumed soaps.
The symptoms caused by vaginal dryness include difficulty and pain having sexual intercourse, feeling the need to urinate more frequently and a sore and itchy vagina.
How effective is Replens MD Longer Lasting Vaginal Moisturiser?
Replens MD Longer Lasting Vaginal Moisturiser is extremely effective at restoring natural moisture levels in your most intimate areas. This is thanks to its clinically proven gel format and the ease of administration through its applicators that are included with it.
It has been clinically proven to provide longer-lasting vaginal moisturisation as, unlike most other lotion and lubricant-based products, it gets to the source of the problem. This means Replens MD can deliver continuous moisture for up to 3 days from just a single application.
When used as directed, Replens MD provides continuous moisture and comfort, and regular use of it helps to maintain optimal vaginal health.

What are the side effects of Replens MD Longer Lasting Vaginal Moisturiser?
As with any product to be applied to the skin, there can be some side effects experienced, although these are rare. You may notice that when you first start to use this product, a residue or a discharge occurs. This is perfectly normal and happens as a result of the dry skin cells shedding naturally from the vaginal tissue as it becomes more lubricated with using this moisturiser.
The tissue will become much softer and more supple as a result of this shedding of dry and dead skin cells and will also help to prevent more from being built up. With regular use of Replens MD, this discharge of dead cells should disappear over time.
If any other side effects are experienced, it is important to discontinue use and speak to your pharmacist at Click Pharmacy or a medical professional.
