During breastfeeding, the milk stimulating hormone prolactin increases, while estrogen decrease. Due to reduction of estrogen, the vaginal lining skin becomes atrophied, which can result in vaginal dryness and painful sex.
Estrogen cream or suppository can help relief vaginal atrophy and ease painful sex. However, hormones have side effects. During breastfeeding, the safety of mother and infant is important. Many women on breastfeeding are seeking a hormone-free product that is safe for both mother and infant.
NeuEve is hormone free and is thus safe for both mother and infant.
We have several levels NeuEve products for women of different ages to relieve vaginal atrophy. From mild to strong they are Cream, Silk, Silver, and Gold.
The appropriate products for you is the Assorted pack. https://www.neueve.com/products/assorted
The Assorted pack has 4 Silk suppositories, 2 Silvers, and 1 Gold. It also comes with a sample vulva balm cream (about 2-3 weeks of supply if you use it on a daily basis). Use the balm a tiny bit (1/4 dime size) at a time on the exterior vulva. You can achieve a more rapid recovery if you combine the balm and the suppositories.
