Vaginal Dryness

Post image for Estroven® Intimacy Kit for Vaginal Dryness & Loss of Libido in Perimenopause

I’ve made no small hay about how much I like Estroven®.  Both as a company and as a product. I review a lot of products here at my blog.  But for most of them, I lay no claim to either liking them or disliking them – unless I do.

Estroven® is definitely a product I like. I’ve worked with them over the years, and they’ve earned my respect. They are perhaps the most popular over-the-counter, drug-free and estrogen-free product available for women to help relieve and manage perimenopause and menopause symptoms*.

They are also the product I recommend the most to women who do not want to use hormone replacement therapy, but who –are seeking help with hot flashes, night sweats, occasional sleeplessness and menopausal weight – changes for example*. The ingredients in Estroven® do a great job of helping with hot flashes and night sweats but also providing additional relief options to other menopausal symptoms.*

The Estroven Intimacy Kit

You may have noticed a few television commercials lately for Estroven’s® latest product, The Estroven® Intimacy Kit. Take a quick peek at one of the commercials here – it’s really cute and speaks the truth about something I am sure many of us can relate to:

Of course, joking about sex during perimenopause and menopause can often cause for a chuckle or two but the reality of not being able to enjoy sex anymore because of vaginal dryness and a loss of libido, to some women is really no laughing matter.

In fact, a lot of women find it very distressing.  Especially if you’ve enjoyed a satisfying and passionate sex life heretofore, and you’re not ready to give it up!  So once again, Estroven® tackles this subject with great aplomb with their Intimacy Kit.

What’s In It?

The Estroven® Intimacy Kit contains two (2) solutions packaged together:

  • The one-per-day caplet which contains a naturally sourced blend of Magnolia Bark (gotta love that name!) to help manage mood swings and changes in your libido.*  In addition, it contains Black Cohosh and soy isoflavones, to reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes and night sweats.*
  • A drug and estrogen-free vaginal moisturizer/lubricant, which is water-based, to alleviate vaginal dryness and replenish vaginal moisture.  It is non-irritating and fragrance and alcohol free (definitely important for the delicate vaginal moisture balance!)

How Do You Use It?

The caplets are directed to take one (1) per day with food and to use a minimum of 60 days for best results. The moisturizer/lubricant is pretty self-explanatory as I’m sure we all know where that is supposed to be applied!

It can be used as a personal lubricant for day-to-day comfort and moisturize by squeezing a strip onto your finger and applying every three (3) days. It can also be used inside or outside of a condom, and is compatible with latex condoms.

Great! Where Can I Get Some?

Sexual issues in perimenopause (loss of libido, vaginal dryness, inability to achieve orgasm) are a huge topic in women’s health lately.  I don’t know if any of you ladies have noticed that.  But, I have. Many brands, advertisers, and medical groups have begun to focus very intensely on this topic over the past 12 months or so, and […]

Symptoms of Perimenopause Symptoms of Menopause

I thought it would be appropriate – and helpful – to follow up on a recent post I did on the difference between perimenopause and menopause and provide a list of the symptoms associated with each. Though the terms are often (and I’m guilty of the same) used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. Perimenopause is a transitional […]

I have been using the Vivelle Dot, a transdermal, bioidentical estradiol for approximately one week now, and the verdict is in: I’m feeling better. The first thing I noticed after a couple of days of use, was the lifting of the brain fog.  The dense weight of short-term memory issues has not completely dissipated, but […]

February is the month of love, and if our spouses and significant others play their cards right (read: flowers, jewelry, chocolate, and dinner), it can also be the month of great sex – or not, if you’re a woman going through perimenopause. It’s a very distressing fact for many women that when they begin to […]

Let’s face it. Vaginal dryness is not exactly a topic most women jump on the bandwagon to talk about.  Yet, it is a very real and common complaint among perimenopausal and menopausal women. As with all the symptoms we suffer with in perimenopause, vaginal dryness is the result of hormonal fluctuations of estrogen and progesterone. […]

Feel better?  I could have used someone telling me that about 10 years ago when I walked right into one of the fiercest hormonal battles of my life. First of all, I had never heard of peri-anything.  Menopause?  Yeah.  I had heard of that.  My mom called it “the change,” and I knew that sooner […]
