The menopause can be a testing transitional period for women. It comes with a whole host of unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes and mood swings, but one of the most challenging symptoms is vaginal atrophy. Vaginal atrophy affects around half of all menopausal women, and it happens when your body stops making estrogen. This causes thinned, dry and inflamed vaginal wall tissue, which can make sex difficult and even painful.
You may experience a shortening and tightening of the birth canal, leading to further difficulties having intercourse. It’s also likely that you’ll be unable to produce sufficient lubrication, and you may experience some bleeding during or after sex. Vaginal atrophy symptoms also include burning or urgency when urinating, itching, discharge, urinary tract infections and even incontinence.
If you are suffering from vaginal atrophy you may be searching for some form of relief so that you can return to a normal sex life… if so, read on. VuvaTech are here to help!
Why use vaginal dilators with Replens products?
If you use vaginal dilators in combination with a vaginal moisturizer you are likely to get much more relief from vaginal atrophy symptoms. Below is a summary of both vaginal atrophy treatments:
Vaginal dilator therapy
Using vaginal dilators to treat vaginal atrophy is a popular choice, since they are both natural and completely safe. You can use vaginal dilators in the privacy and comfort of your own home, at your own pace. Vaginal dilators are tube-shaped devices that can gently and gradually stretch open the vagina if it has tightened or shortened, restoring normal function. Vaginal dilators also help prevent scarring and can increase vaginal lubrication.

VuVa magnetic vaginal dilators come in a set of graduated sizes. The smallest one is around the same size as your pinky finger, and you can become accustomed to the different sizes over time. We particularly recommend magnetic dilators because they improve blood flow to the vaginal tissues and calm the nerves, which leads to easier penetration and pain relief.
Replens Vaginal Moisturizers
It’s a great idea to use natural and water-based lubricants while using vaginal dilators and during sexual activity. Replens is a clinically proven vaginal moisturizer that eases vaginal dryness, so it is the perfect choice for sex or dilator use. Replens users have reported greater comfort and renewed sexual enjoyment, and it is even recommended by Doctors as the top vaginal moisturizer on the market. Multiple clinical studies were conducted and all demonstrated that Replens is a highly effective solution for vaginal dryness and other vaginal atrophy symptoms.
Further advice for women with vaginal atrophy
It’s normal for women to hesitate over consulting a Doctor about their vaginal atrophy symptoms. If you feel embarrassed about changes down there, it helps to remember that healthcare professionals see this kind of thing all the time, so there is no judgment. It is better not to suffer in silence, as the symptoms can be painful and worrying. Likewise, allowing symptoms to worsen could delay a return to normal sexual intimacy. Your doctor can confirm an atrophy diagnosis at a simple check-up and pelvic examination.
