How to Use Replens

Replens is a long-lasting vaginal moisturizer. The lubricant is available over the counter without a prescription. Replens works to eliminate vaginal dryness by adhering to the vaginal wall, decreasing and removing dry skin cells. This allows the vagina to restore natural moisture. Using the personal lubricant on a routine basis, every three days, is supposed to effectively restore a comfortable moisture balance.
