Here are just some of our products, and together with appropriate exercises and advice, may reduce the impact of treatment on your pelvic health.

This pack contains:
Ural® Effervescent Powder - 28 x 4g Sachets - is a urinary alkaliniser, which works by raising the pH of urine.

Why an Intimate Cream?
We have decided to use the term “Intimate Cream” as opposed to “Personal Lubricant”. Firstly, this has less of a sexual connotation, and we feel it makes the purchase easier. Secondly, this product has multiple uses apart from intercourse! Women can experience vaginal dryness or itching from several causes, such as menopause, breastfeeding, and skin issues.
This product is safe to use as a vaginal moisturiser, or for moisturising of sensitive mucosal tissues such as a protruding prolapse. It may be used to help insert a pessary, dilator or even a suppository. In fact it can be used anywhere on the body – we use it as a body moisturiser and heel cream!
- Personal lubricant for intercourse
- Intimate Cream for sensitive vulval, vaginal and anal tissues
- Massage oil
- Body and face moisturiser
- Lip balm
- Heel balm
pjur®med REPAIR glide Intimate Personal Lubricant 100mL - is a water-based intimate personal lubricant with regenerative hyaluron for dry and stressed vaginal mucosa.
- Contains hyaluron which is amazing for regeneration and moisture
- Soft, long-lasting lubrication
Hyaluron has the ability to bind large amounts of water and to provide better than average lubrication. Hyaluron enables optimal regeneration of the skin. pjur med Repair glide utilises the regenerating and moisturising properties of hyaluron to reduce dry and stressed skin in the genital area. This water-based personal lubricant enriched with hyaluron helps reduce vaginal dryness by compensating for the moisture demands of the vaginal mucosa.
