RepHresh Review: White Clumps Be Damned!

RepHresh Gel does several things. It gives you lubrication during sex, restores the vagina’s natural moisture and helps balance the PH in the vagina. An unbalanced PH can cause vaginal odor, and make you more prone to vaginal infections (yeast, bacterial, etc.) RepHresh comes in a pre-filled applicator in gel form, so you don’t have to deal with the mess of a cream. The applicator is simple to use. With clean hands, unwrap the package and shake the applicator a few times to help get the RepHresh heading towards the end of the tube. Shake it like you would a thermometer. Next, you twist the little cap off at the thin end of the applicator. You may be able to see tiny bit of RepHresh seeping out the end. Then you grasp the applicator by the thick end and either lie on your back with your legs up or stand and slightly squat. Insert the applicator into the vagina as far as it is comfortable and squeeze the thick end of the applicator to release the RepHresh in to the vagina. Then you thrown the applicator away and go about your business, whether it be sleeping or starting your day.

I swear by this product. I stopped using Replens because I found RepHresh. I use RepHresh Gel every three days as directed. I prefer to use mine at bed time, just because I feel it’s more effective that way. Although I think that is just a habit from all the yeast medicines I’ve been on because they always say use them at night. Others prefer to use it when they wake up, or just before a shower, so it’s really just personal preference. I wouldn’t recommend doing your application of RepHresh right before your getting ready to have sex. I’ve found it to be a little too gooey when done right before you have sex. Right after sex is OK, but I prefer to wait a few hours after sex if my husband has ejaculated inside of me. It works great with other lubricants as well, if you need additional lubrication during sex. For the first month or so, you may experience some residue from the RepHresh in your underwear and during sex. I did. It looks like white clumps and is usually only noticeable on the day after my application. Once I got on a regular schedule of using it every three days for about a month, I didn’t have the residue anymore. They say it is dead skin sells from your vagina. RepHresh recommends that if it still continues after a month or so, then maybe try going longer between each application.

I would not recommend using RepHresh Gel during your period. It will just cause the blood to come out in clumps and make a big mess. I usually use RepHresh a few days before the start of my period and a day or two after my period has completely stopped. The main selling point for me with RepHresh is the fact that if I feel slightly itchy down there like there may possibly be a yeast infection coming on, RepHresh seems to take care of it. This is especially helpful for me right after my period when I am most prone to yeast infections. It also seems to help when my bladder feels irritated like I might be getting a urinary tract infection. RepHresh has done wonders for me. I really feel like it helps keep the vaginal infections at bay.

It’s also safe to use during oral sex. It doesn’t contain spermicides, so it shouldn’t be used as a method of birth control. Also, it should not be used to treat an existing vaginal infection. It’s more of a preventative measure. It can be purchased at most drugstores as well as places like Wal-Mart and Target and is usually in the section with pads, tampons, yeast creams, pregnancy tests, etc. RepHresh costs around $18.99 for a box, which comes with 4 pre-filled applicators. A little pricey, but well worth it. I prefer to buy mine online. It seems to be cheaper online and some places also offer free shipping. Plus, I prefer the privacy of having it shipped.

Replens Review

Many things can cause vaginal dryness, such as: certain medications, menopause, stress, menstruation, childbirth, breastfeeding, use of tampons, and intercourse. Replens is designed to help restore the vagina’s natural moisture. It comes in a pre-filled applicator and lasts up to three days. It’s different from personal lubricants because it doesn’t have to be applied right before sex. Many women prefer to use Replens moisturizer at night before bed. The applicator is to be thrown away after you use it. The applicator should be opened with clean hands. Once the applicator is out of the package, give it a few firm shakes, holding it by the thicker end, to loosen up the gel inside the applicator. Then remove the cap on the thin end and insert the applicator into the vagina either lying with your legs up, or squatting while standing up. Only insert as far as it is comfortable. Next you give the thick end of the applicator a good squeeze to release the gel into the vagina. That’s it. Some gel may still remain in the applicator. It’s normal.  Just throw the applicator away and go to sleep. The instructions say you may experience dead skin cell discharge in the days following the application. It looks kind of like cottage cheese. This is supposed to go away with continued use.

Replens can be used every 2 to 3 days but shouldn’t be used during your period because it will cause the blood to clump together and just create a mess. It is best to resume using Replens a few days after your period has completely stopped. Replens does not contain any spermicides, therefore it isn’t a form of birth control. It is safe during oral sex. It can be purchased at most drugstores and also at Walmart and Target. Replens if fairly inexpensive. You get 8 applicators for about $17. You can also order it online from most drugstores and you can buy it directly from the Replens site as well.

Replens was recommended to me by my gyno. Having enough lubrication during sex can help prevent yeast infections as well as other types of vaginal infections, so I decided to give it a try. The lubrication was a little thick and not quite as slippery as I would have liked. It did not feel very natural to me. I used it every three days as directed. For the first few weeks I had the dead skin cell discharge. It’s thick and white and quite a nuisance. It came out in large amounts on my underwear as well as during sex. My husband and I had to go rinse off several times during sex because the white clumps were all over the place. I always had to wear a pantyliner during the day and change it several times to keep my underwear from getting messed up. After a few weeks the discharge was less, but still not completely gone. I also sometimes experienced an itching sensation right after insertion. I stopped using it because I found a product I liked better called RepHresh.
