How Does Replens Work?

Although there are much different lubrication and personal moisturisers out there, Replens is completely different. It is recommended by gynaecologists as a long-lasting moisturiser and its effectiveness has been proven in multiple clinical trials and studies for its ability to supplement the body’s natural lubrication.

It is specially designed to deliver moisture to the vagina for a few days, meaning you only have to reapply every 3-5 days. This gives you the freedom to be spontaneous and enjoy intimacy whenever you like. Once applied, Replens immediately relieves symptoms of vaginal dryness like itching, irritation and burning. It instantly provides soothing moisture to dry vaginal cells to ensure long-lasting hydration.

It is so different from other lubricants and lotions because it contains a bioadhesive that allows the moisture to attach to dry, compacted cells in order to deliver continuous moisture until those cells are naturally regenerated. Because the cells will regenerate on their own within 3-5 days, it is recommended to apply Replens this often to ensure continuous natural lubrication. This action will allow vaginal tissues to absorb moisture for them to become hydrated and rejuvenated.

Many other vaginal dryness treatments are hormonal treatments and deliver oestrogen to your vagina and surrounding tissues in order to try and recover the vagina’s natural production of fluid. After stopping hormone replacement treatment, symptoms can return and repeated courses are often necessary.

Some vaginal oestrogens can also cause some side effects when used long-term like vaginal discharge, hot flashes, vaginal bleeding, vaginitis and painful menstruation. Replens however, does not cause side effects and can be used as a long-term treatment for dryness.

  • Step 1 - Replens immediately gets to work as soon as it is applied and provides soothing moisture to the dry vaginal cells for long-lasting hydration.
  • Step 2 - It continues to deliver moisture for a few days to replenish the moisture of the dry vaginal cells and supplement your body’s natural lubrication.
  • Step 3 - The cells of the vaginal wall are regenerated every 3-5 days, meaning the dry cells are cleared and Replens is naturally eliminated. As with any other part of the body like the face or body, moisturising should be done regularly to prevent dryness and keep up optimum moisture levels.
