Q & A

Vaginal dryness can be a common concern for any woman. However, it is more likely to show its effect after menopause. The vagina is moist with the help of the natural lubricate produced by the two glands at the neck of the cervix. This lubricant travels down the vagina to keep it clean and moist. It also removes the dead cells. The lubricant also works as an anti-infection as it slightly acidic. This keeps the vaginal area healthy and infection free. This lubricant is white in colour and every woman notices this vaginal discharge. When the body produces less lubricant, vaginal dryness is experienced.

Vagifem vaginal tablets belong to the group of medicines known as local Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains estradiol, which replaces oestrogen, one of the female sex hormones. Vagifem is used to relieve menopausal symptoms in the vagina such as dryness or irritation. These symptoms are experienced when the oestrogen levels drop in the body. Vagifem maintains the hormone levels and reduces the menopausal symptoms.
