Vaginal Discomforts

Problems in the intimate region usually develop because of hygiene regimes that are either inadequate or too harsh, or because of an imbalance of the bacterial flora naturally present in the vagina. These vaginal discomforts occur more often than you might think – three out of five women occasionally experience intimate problems.

The most common problems are bacterial vaginosis (BV) and yeast infection (thrush).

For both,  symptoms can include itching, burning and increased discharge with an unpleasant smell. Often, these problems are not caused by full-blown infections, so it is not necessary to use prescribed antibiotics. In these cases, Multi-Gyn offers natural, effective solutions by maintaining the natural pH and balancing the vaginal flora. ActiGel has been clinically shown to be as effective as antibiotics in the treatment of bacterial vaginosis. It is available on prescription, or can be bought over the counter from retailers, or from our online shopFloraPlus is a five-day treatment for thrush which eliminates Candida without building resistance. In addition, Multi-Gyn IntiSkin spray relieves the itch and irritation in the intimate area, regardless of the cause.

Another common problem is vaginal pain.

This can be caused by infection, surgery or trauma, childbirth, endometriosis or allergies. Very often, pain occurs simply because of excessive or inadequate hygiene. Repeated washing, scrubbing and harsh detergents can harm the protective barriers and cause irritation, sensitivity and pain. Choose mild cleaning products specifically designed for this purpose. Multi-Gyn FemiWash and IntiFresh wipes gently cleanse the intimate area. These products provide more than simple hygiene thanks to 2QR-complex which improves the balance of natural flora, helps eliminate odours and leaves you feeling fresh. IntiSkin provides relief from itching and burning in the external vaginal area whenever you need it – after shaving, waxing, when using sanitary pads, if urinary incontinence causes skin irritation or after playing sports. For patients fighting with gynaecological cancer Multi-Gyn Compresses and IntiFresh wipes offer instant relief and gentle care of sore and cracked skin due to radiotherapy.

Many women experience vaginal dryness due to stress, decreased levels of oestrogen especially in menopause, certain medications or insufficient foreplay during sexual intercourse. We suggest Hyalofemme or Multi-Gyn LiquiGel to alleviate the symptoms and enjoy your sex life to the fullest.

Hyalofemme is a long-lasting, natural-feeling vaginal moisturiser which is available on prescription and to buy over the counter in retailers, and in the Purple Orchid online shop.

Chlamydia is an increasingly common problem which can occur without any symptoms – and can have devastating effects such as infertility, ectopic pregnancy and premature birth. Care Diagnostica Viola offers a simple home-test kit which gives results within 20 minutes.
