Vaginal Atrophy

Lubricants & moisturizers to relieve vaginal atrophy

Vaginal atrophy – or atrophic vaginitis – is the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls. Its symptoms include vaginal dryness, itching, burning and irritation.

The condition is caused by a decline in the hormone estrogen and affects many women during and after the menopause. It can occur at any age, for example after childbirth, when using contraceptives, during treatment for cancer, and with other conditions that affect hormone levels.

Vaginal atrophy can cause deep emotional distress because it affects sexual intimacy and causes physical discomfort and pain.

AH! YES® VM vaginal moisturizer and AH! YES® WB personal lubricant are water-based and have an original formulation made from natural, organic plant-based ingredients that provide superior moisture retention. Both AH! YES VM & AH! YES WB act immediately to give soothing relief.

How Often Should I Use AH! YES® VM?

AH! YES VM is iso-osmotic to vaginal tissues, which means it is designed to release water to rehydrate vaginal tissues over several days, as needed.

AH! YES VM acts immediately to rehydrate and soothe dry and sensitive vaginal tissues. It releases moisture where needed, in response to the degree of vaginal dryness, putting your body in control of re-hydrating itself.

Apply daily initially, reducing to every 3 days as symptoms improve.
