Replens Long-Lasting Feminine Moisturizer has been tested extensively in clinical studies
of over 500 women. None of the results showed a connection to any sort of infections. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), yeast infections occur when there is overgrowth of the yeast called Candida that is always present in and on the body in small amounts. Candida yeast overgrowth often occurs during hormonal imbalance or various medical conditions. Symptoms of yeast infection may include genital itching, burning, and sometimes a "cottage cheese-like" vaginal discharge. Vaginal yeast infections generally require treatment with an OTC or prescription medicine that is indicated for such use.
