Healthcare Professionals Testimonials

Below are comments from physicians and other healthcare professionals about Rephresh.

"I recently had a patient ask me about the need for douching. I proceeded to explain to them that douching is unnecessary and can be harmful. The vagina contains multiple microorganisms that, when in balance, maintain the vagina in a healthy state. A number of commonly encountered influences can throw off this balance, including antibiotics, hormonal changes such as birth control pills and menopause, and douching.

Douching affects the balance of bacteria and yeast in the vagina, which can lead to yeast infections and bacterial overgrowth called bacterial vaginosis. Douching also can push bacteria and other organisms that are in the vagina up into the uterus, through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvis.

For those of you who absolutely cannot live without the use of some kind of feminine product, try using a product formulated to maintain the normal pH of the vagina. An example is the RepHresh Gel. It is a gel that can be used up to every three days that helps maintain the normal, healthy pH of the vagina, which in turn helps prevent conditions like bacterial vaginosis."
