You can adapt the frequency of use to your personal needs. Usually, the cream is applied in the vagina once a day (in the evening); once symptoms have improved, the frequency of application can be reduced as needed. We recommend wearing a panty liner when using this product.
You can apply Vagisan MoistCream to the external genital area and the opening to the vagina several times per day as needed.
Vagisan MoistCream is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. However, for safety reasons the applicator should not be used to insert the cream during pregnancy. Instead a ribbon of cream (about 2 cm long) can be inserted into the vagina using a finger.
No incompatibility with condoms has been reported for Vagisan MoistCream. However, our products are tested regularly and more recent test results based on stricter safety standards have led to the conclusion that complete compatibility with condoms may not be guaranteed. We therefore recommend not using Vagisan MoistCream with condoms in the future.
The lactic acid content in Vagisan MoistCream is far lower than in Vagisan Lactic Acid. Vagisan MoistCream products are therefore not suitable for acidifying the vagina to prevent recurrent infections.
During menopause and the years that follow, vaginal dryness is caused by declining hormone levels. Therefore, one cannot expect vaginal dryness to ‘disappear’, but rather to remain. The regular use of Vagisan MoistCream, which supplies the skin in the internal and external vaginal area with moisture and restorative lipids, is similar to your skin care routine for your face and hands. Regular application of the cream helps keep the skin supple.
It is normal to feel a slight burning momentarily after applying Vagisan MoistCream. Even the application of gels may show this side effect.
However, should the burning be very strong and uncomfortable and last longer than 5 to 10 minutes (possible in individual cases), we advise you stop using the cream. In such a case, rinse the external genital area with lukewarm water. We then advise against further use of the cream.
Vagisan MoistCream can relieve discomfort caused by vaginal dryness. The sensation of dryness is often accompanied by burning, itching and pain in the area of the vagina, the vaginal entrance and the external intimate area. If these symptoms do not improve when you use Vagisan MoistCream, we recommend that you consult a doctor in any case. Other treatment may be necessary. In addition, persistence of symptoms may be due to causes other than vaginal dryness; in this case, it is important that a specialist finds out the cause and can prescribe the appropriate treatment. For example, if there is severe itching that cannot be relieved despite various treatments, lichen sclerosus should be considered. This is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that can occur in the genital area and needs to be treated by a specialist.
