Feminine Hygiene - Female Dryness Treatment


Obviously, this is a tricky subject to talk about sometimes, but problems such as vaginal dryness are extremely common, and often greatly affect quality of life and relationships. This is why we’ve pulled together some of our favourite over-the-counter remedies for women looking for a cure to female dryness. We have a few great products, some of which are included in our Women’s Bits Gift Pack, to help with hygiene, moisturising and lubrication. These products are all natural, paraben-free and most importantly, a solution for women looking for a cure to female dryness

HOPE Recommendations

For regular internal moisturising, we have a brand new product, Vagisil® ProHydrate® Plus (gel with applicators) which contains a unique blend of moisturisers, including Hyaluronic Acid, which mimics our body’s own natural moisture. Aci-Jel® Restore is another option for female dryness treatment which provides long lasting moisture to help reduce dryness, itching and discomfort. We also love the beautiful, Australian-made Olive & Bee Intimate Creammade from natural ingredients which can be used to provide moisture or lubrication anywhere on the body.

For personal lubrication, the pjur®med Glide range have a wide selection of products including water or silicon based, vegan and repair (which contains the natural skin re-generator Sodium Hyaluronate), with minimal 'extra' ingredients, such as preservatives making it an ideal natural remedy for menopausal dryness.

Also in the pjur®med range is the pjur®med CLEAN personal cleaning spray lotion which can be used for gentle, hygienic cleaning of the skin and the intimate area, without alcohol.

The all Cool Ice Towel is a very refreshing cloth that turns cold immediately when you add water. This can help relieve hot, aggravated skin or help with hot flushes.

Radiotherapy Side Effect Management

Following radiotherapy to the pelvic region, women can suffer from vaginal inflammation, as well as the build-up of scar tissue in that area, as the body heals from the treatment. Stenosis, or narrowing and shortening, of the vagina can also occur.

These changes can make sexual intercourse and medical examinations very difficult, painful and even impossible for some people. In these cases, we’d recommend  Glass  and  Silicon Dilators as a way to manage these changes. We also have the Elvie Trainer, an award-winning Kegel trainer for a stronger pelvic floor.
