A Smooth Valentine’s Night with Replens™ Vaginal Moisturizer

Cedar Rapids, IA (February 1, 2011) Valentine’s Day is supposed to be filled with fun and romance for you and your partner. But worrying about feminine dryness can put unnecessary strain on your relationship and make Valentine’s Day, or any day, miserable. But as baby boomers reach menopause, they are saying no to “sandpaper sex” and are finding relief with long-lasting moisturizers like Replens Long-Lasting Vaginal Moisturizer.

“Vaginal dryness is a very common obstacle to intimacy, oftentimes making sex a painful and unpleasant experience.” said Dr. Machelle M. Seibel, professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Massachusetts and heads the Complicated Menopause Clinic. “An uncomfortable problem like vaginal dryness is something that can be managed so that women don’t have to worry about it on a romantic evening like Valentine’s.”

Nearly every woman will experience vaginal dryness sometime in her life. It is most often associated with the normal decline or fluctuation of the female hormone estrogen. This fluctuation can be triggered by childbirth, breastfeeding or menopause. Dryness can also be caused by stress, certain medications, or excessive exercise. It is also common to experience dryness after douching, tampon use or at the end of the menstrual cycle.

One of the most common ways that women discover vaginal dryness is during intimacy. Many women who suffer from vaginal dryness are embarrassed and reluctant to mention the problem to their doctor. In fact, 7 out of 10 women experiencing dryness fail to seek any advice from a gynecologist or family physician. Luckily there are options available that can help.

It’s no coincidence that you’ll see more advertising for lubricants around Valentine’s Day. Many women think there are no good options because they’ve tried lubricants in the past and haven’t liked them, but a long-lasting moisturizer like Replens is different from most lubricants.

“There’s a big difference between most lubricants and long-lasting moisturizers,” said Dr. Seibel. “Most lubricants provide only short term, temporary help during sex. If dryness is a recurring complaint, a long-lasting moisturizer, like Replens, provides soothing, immediate, and long-lasting moisture and relief for comfort throughout day and night.”

When used regularly, Replens Long-Lasting Vaginal Moisturizer helps replenish your natural vaginal moisture, making intimacy more enjoyable. Replens’ formula delivers long lasting moisture so sexual intercourse can be more spontaneous. Since Replens does not need to be applied immediately before intercourse, it does not interrupt the moment by being runny, messy or slippery. Instead, Replens provides long-lasting lubrication whenever the moment is right.

Replens is estrogen free and odorless. Replens contains a patented ingredient for soothing and long-lasting moisture. As the cells of the vaginal wall are regenerated, dry cells are cleared and Replens is eliminated naturally. As with dry skin that you experience on your face and hands, regular moisturizing treatment may be necessary to prevent dryness from recurring.
