You’ve stated that you wish to take Non-Hormonal Vaginal Moisturizer for the treatment of vaginal dryness. This medication should be used every 3 days for best results, but can be used more or less frequently depending on the severity of your dryness. This medication is safe to be used daily. To use this treatment you will insert 1 gram vaginally 3 times a week. Wash the applicator with warm water for 20 seconds before reusing. This will improve vaginal dryness and lubrication which can improve painful intercourse. Make sure to stop using this product 4 days before your scheduled pap smear so it won’t affect your results. We recommend spot testing this on the skin to ensure no reaction occurs prior to using intravaginally. This treatment is not safe for latex condoms, but can be used with non-latex condoms.
This medicine will be available for refills on an as needed basis or through an annual subscription—providing a 90 day supply at a time.
If your symptoms aren’t improving or if you develop new or worsening symptoms you should stop using this product and see a doctor in-person and message us immediately.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
This treatment is safe to be used in breastfeeding individuals. Breastfeeding individuals may benefit from intravaginal moisturizers due to the lowered estrogen state that impacts the vaginal tissues and can lead to vaginal dryness. Pregnant individuals shouldn’t ingest aloe vera as it contains anthraquinones that may stimulate the uterus and initiate premature labor or possibly cause miscarriage. While systemic absorption is likely minimal, we don’t recommend this product be used by pregnant patients.
