Question about Replens?

I just want to know how often I should use Replens. I've heard an application lasts up to three days, but doesn't it have to be reapplied every day after a shower?

Question about Replens?

Hi Mori Since the Replens is used internally, unless you're showering upside down you won't have to reapply after showering.

Question about Replens?

Hi mori

I use RePlens and have found that showering isn't an issue. Every 3 days is optimum for me and inserting it at night helps the initial application stay in the vagina longer than if applied during the day when you're up and about. It can seem a little messy until your tissues get to being moisturised.

Best wishes and s........Wendy

Question about Replens?

Thanks for your replies,
Surferbabe you really had me cracking up about the "upside down shower"! Here is my confession. I had no idea that Replens was something used internally! When I posted with questions about it, I hadn't actually read the box. When I read that it contained 3 pre-filled applicators I was stunned! I feel nervous about inserting anything & worry that I may injure myself. How do I know how often I need to use it?

Question about Replens?

You'll be able to get a feel once you start using it. I tried every 5 days but had some irritation towards the fifth day. The instructions say to use it more often as you start the program then you can lengthen the time between as your tissues become accustomed. As every woman is different, some experimentation until you find what works for "you" is necessary.

Cheers........Wendy
