A week ago I wrote about a new product that I was sent to try, and the title was: “Things your mother never told you,”  and today’s post is a follow up talking about the real benefits of Vagisil.


Vagisil Prohydrate Plus.

I don’t apologise for writing about intimate feminine challenges because our bodies change as we age, and as the sandwich generation with so many responsibilities besides our own health, we tend to just grin and bear things, keep our chins up and get on with life.

Vaginal health is probably not something you’re likely to sit down and chat about over a cup of coffee with your friends, and possibly by now your Mum is too old for such matters or perhaps she’s sadly passed away and can’t pass on her experiences about menopause.

Let’s face it sometimes it’s even harder to talk to your doctor. How many times I’ve sat in the surgery red faced and stuttering trying to describe an intimate problem thinking all the while, “Get a grip Jo, he deals in bodies every day. This is no big deal.”

But it is a big deal!

So when I was sent some Vagisil ProHydrate Gels to try, I was not only relieved I didn’t have to go to the Doctor, or whisper a request to the pharmacist, but I could just go, “Yesss!” and open the parcel in the comfort of my own home.

The benefits of vagisil cream

Vaginal dryness is nothing new. It’s a large unmet consumer need. According to research every year, many many Australian women experience vaginal dryness at some point in their lives.

Most of them will probably just put up with it. Some of them will lose confidence because of it. Some may even run the risk of ruining their marriages or relationships because of it.

But, Vagisil ProHydrate Gels are an innovative solution for vaginal dryness, which let’s face it can be part and parcel of menopause.

I’ve been testing two products over the last couple of weeks and not only do they deliver long lasting moisture – unlike some other brands I’ve tried – but they are not as messy, and they feel much more like my own natural moisture.

I’m not yet an old lady, and I don’t want to feel like one, and so for as long as I can I shall desist any deterioration of my health and abilities while I can, and I hope you will too 🙂

You might like to listen to Dr Nikki Goldstein talk about this problem on video HERE on YouTube.

I’m all for products like Vagisil, and I’m #shamelessaboutvaginalhealth because I think it affects many of us over the age of 50, but many of us just squirm thinking about it, and would rather not talk about it.

Are you nodding your head in agreement – do you suffer from bothersome menopausal problems? I hope you’re not just laying back and thinking of England, Australia or wherever!

Given the wonders of modern science,  given that it’s a common challenge which affects many women after menopause, we deserve to know more about how to treat it.

Alternative Options

I’ve tried other products and not really found anything that I’m happy using.

  • First there was the hormone replacement – which I disliked intensely.
  • Then there were various creams, potions, moisturisers and lubricants. All Messy. Yuk.
  • Then along came Vagisil.

Even if this post wasn’t sponsored, I can assure you that I would be using this product.

So please stop squirming!

Just read this as a public service announcement –  and maybe you’ll give it a try too!


How does it work?

“Vagisil ProHydrate Plus Internal Hydrating Gel’s unique bio-adherent formula coats the vaginal wall and slowly releases moisture over time to relieve vaginal dryness for optimal comfort during intimacy It includes Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring ingredient in the skin and is known to attract and retain moisture.” Vagisil.

Give it a go!

If your intimate life has been taking a bit of a nosedive because of physical problems you can’t control then give Vagisil a try.

What have you got to lose?

Your intimate life, and your sexual confidence, that’s what!

It’s quite a biggie really if you think about it.
