For reasons I won't go in to, I had not had sex for years then when I finally did, it was agony and I had severe bleeding afterwards. Scared stiff that there was something seriously wrong with me I went to my GP who did the usual smear tests etc, which also hurt and made me bleed, - thankfully there was nothing wrong just as he put it - vaginal atrophy because if you don't use it you lose it !!!! and offered no help whatsoever.
I was devastated, felt like the most unattractive shriveled up old bat on the planet, it was so depressing just when I had rediscovered my sex life I found it had been taken away from me. Then one day I was researching vaginal atrophy on line and I happened upon Replens thought I'd give it a try though did not truly think it would work.
Well it does work - yes I did get a small amount of the cottage cheese effect for the first month and occasionally since and yes it does leak out a bit but that is a small price to pay for the return of a wonderful, pain free,active sex life again.
I honestly thought my sex life was over but thanks to Replens far from it - I'm back to my former confident self, I feel fantastic and If you are considering trying it I really couldn't recommend it highly enough.
