FAQS

Can RepHresh be used with a condom?

Yes. RepHresh will not alter condom effectiveness.

We are trying to become pregnant—is it OK to use RepHresh?

Yes. Unlike some lubricants, RepHresh’s patented formula will not interfere with sperm motility.

I noticed a discharge after using RepHresh—What is it?

Some women may notice a residue after initial use of RepHresh—this is caused by the elimination of dry vaginal cells. Your body naturally sheds dry vaginal tissue that has built up over time. RepHresh helps this happen, leaving softer, suppler tissue behind. When used on a regular basis, RepHresh will help prevent the buildup of dried skin cells and the discharge should become less. If the discharge does not become less, you may want to wait an extra day or two between applications.

Do I need a prescription for RepHresh?

No. RepHresh is an over-the-counter product that maintains vaginal pH.

How do I know if RepHresh is safe to use?

RepHresh is a class II medical device and has been approved for over-the-counter sale in the U.K. Clinical trials have consistently shown that RepHresh is as safe as it is effective in maintaining a balanced vaginal pH.

How do I use RepHresh?

RepHresh is simple and easy to use. The applicator is inserted into the vagina just like a tampon. After pressing the thick end of the applicator, a small amount of clear gel enters the vagina. Please look inside your RepHresh package for complete directions.

How often should I use RepHresh?

RepHresh should be used once every three days for best results. Alternatively it may be helpful to use RepHresh during the times you are most susceptible to higher pH levels, such as after your period, after unprotected sex or during pregnancy. Your doctor can help you figure out when you are most susceptible to higher pH levels based on your medical history.

Can I use RepHresh while I’m on my period?

Yes, but it’s not recommended. The gel may stick to blood and form clumps, which can be unpleasant. However, blood from your period can cause your pH level to rise and become unbalanced. To help avoid this, use RepHresh 3 days before and immediately after your period to maintain a healthy vaginal pH balance.

When is the best time of day to use RepHresh?

You can use RepHresh anytime, day or night, and still enjoy maximum effectiveness. For instance, some women may choose to use RepHresh before showering and others may use it before going to bed. You should use it at whatever time you feel most comfortable.

Is RepHresh a cream?

No. RepHresh is a clear, vaginal gel that comes in an applicator, which means you won’t have to experience the mess that comes with a vaginal cream.

Is RepHresh a contraceptive?

No. RepHresh contains no spermicide and should not be used as a form of contraception.

Can pregnant women use RepHresh?

If pregnant or breast-feeding, consult your health care provider before use.

Will RepHresh cause irritation?

RepHresh contains no perfumes or deodorizers that tend to cause irritation. If irritation does occur, however, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

Can I have oral sex/intercourse while using RepHresh?

Yes. In fact, the use of RepHresh can even help lessen discomfort after intercourse. Also, because the pH level of sperm is so high, it can cause your vaginal pH to become unbalanced. The use of RepHresh after unprotected sex will keep your vaginal pH balanced. And by maintaining a balanced pH, RepHresh also helps control vaginal odour, which may make you and your partner feel more comfortable during those intimate moments.

Can I take RepHresh with other medications?

Yes. RepHresh can be taken with other medications including vitamins, antibiotics and birth control pills without reducing their effectiveness.

Does RepHresh do anything for vaginal odour?

Yes. Vaginal odour is often about pH balance, not bad hygiene. If you are uncomfortable with your normal vaginal odour, the use of RepHresh will balance your pH and begin eliminating odour immediately after the first use. However, unusual vaginal odour can be a symptom of a more serious problem, and in this case you should see your doctor for a correct diagnosis.

How do I know I am depositing the right amount of RepHresh?

The pre-filled applicator is designed to deposit the recommended amount of RepHresh. When used as directed, a small amount of RepHresh will remain in the applicator after use. Discard this excess product along with the applicator.

Where can I buy RepHresh?

RepHresh is available to purchase at Boots, Lloyd Pharmacy, Pharmacy 2U and at most local chemists.
