Many women experience symptoms of vaginal dryness after menopause, rendering intercourse painful and uncomfortable. The diminished estrogen levels cause less blood to flow to the vaginal tissue. You can find relief with hyaluronic acid though, as this popular ingredient in your facial products is also wonderful to help manage the symptoms of painful sex. Another plus: it offers relief without having to use hormone therapy.
“Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body and is a key molecule involved in maintaining the skin’s moisture. HA has the unique capacity to bind to and retain water, however, with age comes natural depletion,” says Dr. Alyssa Dweck, Chief Medical Officer at Bonafide, a company that creates products to help women deal with all hormonal symptoms from PMS to menopause.
Revaree is a hormone-free, steroid-free, and paraben-free vaginal insert that contains hyaluronic acid. Created by Bonafide, it contains no animal-based ingredients or by-products. Simply slide a suppository into your vagina before intercourse. Once it melts, your vagina’s walls will be coated and protected from friction. You’ll feel a pleasurable sensation of lubrication. The released hyaluronic acid grows in the tissues and binds more moisture to help you enjoy sex.
“Vaginal moisturizers, including those made with HA can be used indefinitely. Unlike hot flashes or night sweats, vaginal dryness related to menopause will only persist or worsen with time if not managed regularly. The longer a moisturizer is used, the better the outcome,” says Dr. Dweck.
