Vagisil for Our Ever Changing Bodies #Vagisil #ad

This whole being a woman thing is tough! We are multitasking people who never really give ourselves a break. We put others first and often forget to take care of ourselves. Then our body tells us “Hey, remember me?” and we know to pay attention. Being a mom since I was seventeen, my body has went through many changes. I am now forty and it seems never-ending. Just as I get use to how things are, something else happens and shakes things up.

Not one pregnancy was the same, not one postpartum either.  Intimacy in my twenties was way different from in my forties and I suspect it will continue to evolve. My weight was easier to manage when I was younger as were my aches and pains. My nails did not grow as well, but my hair sure did better when I was younger. Everything just keeps changing.

It is easy enough to post a comment online when I break a nail or gain 5 lbs. But what about when I am experiencing something more personal? Many women experience changes in their bodies and are embarrassed to discuss what is happening. They do not know where to turn for advice and often are afraid to even talk to a doctor.

Reality is, you are not alone. No matter what is happening to you, someone else is also experiencing this. Chances are your friends and family are either going through similar, or have. And no matter what, your doctor is there to talk to if needed.

I found turning forty was hard on my body and my mind. As much as I wanted to embrace it, there were way too many changes going on. I spoke to my doctor and she told me I was not going through menopause, however my hormones were changing. I recently changed my birth control, had carried four children and started making healthier choices. Not to mention some major changes in my life that were causing stress and creating some anxiety.

So it was pretty predictable when these all started making my body react differently. I have always been pretty sensitive. I could feel my babies early and would often get reactions to soaps, perfumes etc. Being a sensitive person, some of these changes and annoyances were more personal than others. But like many women, I was unsure where to turn. I would make assumptions and treat my body for infections when that was not necessarily the case.

CAUSES OF VAGINAL DRYNESS:

Hormonal changes are one of the common causes of vaginal dryness, but it isn’t just a menopause issue. Women of all ages can experience it at some time in their life. There are many potential causes of vaginal dryness, including:

  • Stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Certain medications (like antihistamines and birth control pills)
  • Periods
  • Menopause/Peri-menopause
  • Hormones
  • Post-natal hormone shifts
  • IVF treatments

In reality we are lucky to have great resources and amazing great products to help us with all of our womanly needs. One brand I have been able to count on over the years has been Vagisil®. I recently received and had a chance to try out the Vagisil ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel. As well as Vagisil® pH Balance Wash and Vagisil® Extra Strength Anti-Itch Crème. I was happy to see so many products to help with overall vagina health in one place.

If you experience dryness Vagisil® ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel is here to help.  With no added estrogen, no perfumes, no dyes, no preservatives it is great for people with sensitivities like me. Its natural feeling moisture relieves vaginal dryness. This product is effortless and discreet – the single-use pre-filled applicator inserts effortless and targets the source of dryness. It is designed to be discreet and since it can be applied in advance of intimacy it won’t interrupt the moment and only you know you’re using it. Just twist off the tab, insert, squeeze and discard applicator.

The thin applicator is easy to use and can be repeated every 3 days as needed. I like that it is odour-free and not messy.

When experiencing vaginal dryness we do not need to stop living life. We can take action and treat this in the privacy of our own homes. Vagisil® ProHydrate Natural Feel Moisturizing Gel is fast-acting and long-lasting. The unique bio-adherent formula coats the vaginal wall to provide dryness relief instantly, then slowly releases moisture over time. It is a vaginal dryness treatment with a unique blend of moisturizers, including Hyaluronic Acids (HA’s), a naturally occurring hydrator found in skin, so it feels like your own natural moisture.

When you are experiencing dryness, intimacy can be uncomfortable. With this product, you can get back to being comfortable. The Hyaluronic Acid is so effective that a tiny amount holds up to 1000 times its weight in water and it naturally retains moisture. As we age, the percentage of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin decreases which can lead to dryness and fragility. This explains why I noticed so many changes as I had a milestone birthday.

You can find Vagisil in stores everywhere. See a full list of retailers on their website to find a retailer near you.

Our bodies are constantly changing but our lives do not need to stop living!

This post is brought to you by Vagisil but the images and opinions are my own.

Comments

  1. It’s great to see you talking about vaginal dryness in such an open way. This is something that has affected so many of us at some point in our lives and it’s good to know you’re not alone and that help is available.

  2. I have used Vagisil before. Pregnancy can wreak major havok on the body including causing dryness (but also wetness, go figure!).

  3. Hyaluronic Acid is golden! I use a moisturizing line of products for my skin that includes that ingredient and what I love about it is the natural hydration which doesn’t counter balance your skin’s PH level. Seems these products work in the same way, moisturizing without disrupting balance.

  4. I love this brand but I haven’t seen some of these specific products before. I will definitely be looking the next time I visit my pharmacy.

  5. I had no idea that Vagisil made a product for this. I’ve always associated it with other issues, but it looks like they’re covering all feminine health issues these days.

  6. I did not know Vagisil made all of these products. I will be checking them out when I next go shopping.

  7. I think it’s great that bloggers and television networks, via commercials, have stepped up and are addressing this subject. Kudos to you for posting this!

  8. Thanks for talking about how our bodies continue to change as we get older. It’s normal. I started using Vagisil® pH Balance Wash a few years ago and it’s so gentle, never irritating and I imagine the same is true of the other Vagisil product offerings.

  9. I’m so glad to see other women speaking on these types of topics especially for those who are too embarrassed to speak about it so they can know that they are not alone! It’s a good feeling when us women can finally embrace our changes with each other!

  10. This sounds wonderful for those who need this. Great brand and one that I trust!

  11. I didn’t hear about this brand before but it is comforting to know that there is a company out there that takes women’s issues seriously and is working to make life easy.

  12. I’m glad the moisturizing gel is so easy to use and that it’s so helpful for dryness. It’s good to have products like these just in case.

    We really are lucky to have these great products available for us when we need them. I have noticed a lot of changes with my body since I entered my 40’s. I have been using Vagisil® pH Balance Wash for a few months and I love it.

  14. I love that you are talking about this and are not ashamed! It’s an important topic, and something all women have to go through. I’ve used it!

  15. This is a topic that isn’t addressed often. Thank you for talking about this in a classy way & giving women options.

  16. It is important to raise awareness for products that can help. This looks like something women should be aware of.

  17. I love that you are so open on your blog! Vaginal dryness is real and this is such a relatable topic to women of all ages. Thank you for putting this information out there!

  18. So glad there are products out there to help those in need. Glad something is helping.

  19. You are right. I have experienced this once before and didn’t know what to do. I am approaching menopause and might experience this again. I am glad there are products like Vagisil to help with dryness.

  20. Kind of glad people are discussing this openly now. It makes sense as I am sure the number of women experiencing this is quite high. Also didn’t expect to see IVF on there but makes sense also. Aging I think has a lot to do with dryness as well.

  21. We go through so much as we age and have kids and I’m glad we have products like Vagisil to rely on. I think it’s a reliable and helpful product especially for aging women.

  22. Glad to know that this kind of product is available in the market now. I don’t need it yet, but I know I will sooner or later.

  23. I haven’t needed this product yet but I’m glad to know that there options out there for when I do.

  24. This was a great read – it’s so true, we really should be more prepared to talk about these things, seeing as how they affect every one of us! Great to see jay vagasil has is covered with just about everything we need for vaginal health and comfort.

    I hit peri menopause a while ago and I tell you although I’m totally cool with being in my 40s – this part I do not like! And I’m on board with taking whatever help I can get. Because wine doesn’t solve all my problems…..much to my dismay….

  26. I had no idea there was help available for these uncomfortable situations! Thank you so much for sharing and being open about it. Your post is truly going to help me out in the near future! It’s time we stop hiding what ails us this way. Why vaginal health is so difficult to talk about is frustrating.
