Does anyone know anything about Replens??

Hello Sisters...
I was looking for something for vaginal dryness. One of the sisters from the post op board was talking about Replens. I was looking for something that I could already have applied. It sounds like this is the most like the natural thing... I was looking for no oder, taste etc. Boy, I don't want much do I??
Was just wondering if anyone has used it...
Thanks so much..
Love, Donna

Donna I have not had to use any of the vaginal lubricants BUT I know when I was on the post op board alot Hostess music lady Linda told alot of ladies about a lubricant that has everything you wanted. The site also sends you a free sample (although it took awhile to get). Used it once to see if it worked and it did. No taste or smell either. I worried that I would need it so I checked it out. I did a search to try and find it but cant seem to pull it up. Let me see if I can get ahold of linda and I will get back to you.

Donna the name of the lubricant is "Astroglide" You can buy it at walmart I believe.
Here is a link to the site so you can take a peek.

Replens

Donna -

I've used Replens - works great, after you get through the skin shedding phase (dead vaginal skin?) DH did NOT like - can be kind of gross.

I've also used Astroglide - can't say enough good things about this stuff! Beats the heck out of KY, which I thought was way too gummy.

Good luck!!!

Is astroglide a topical ointment or something that you insert like replens???
SKIN SHEDDING...ewwww
what is up with that...lol... That sounds awful!!
OK.. I have to be honest here...I am looking for something that DH won't know that I am using...he is VERY understanding, but sometimes he can do the mind over matter thing...
Sorry, if I am getting too graphic here, but I know how we all love the sex topic !
I just am feeling a little inferior right now, and want things to be perfect...I am also worried about it affectiong oral sex.
OK...OK....I have said enough for one night... you are all great, thanks for the help....Keep it coming
Thanks so much for all of your replies....
Love, Donna

Donna, Astroglide is very effective and would probably be undetectable if you applied one or two drops inside the vagina ahead of contact. If your DH ever has problems producing or maintaining an erection, be sure to remind him about mind over matter! Sue
