As a cancer survivor, I had pelvic radiation and suffer severe vaginal atrophy. Which product is best for me?

NeuEve is all-natural, hormone-free, herb-free, soy-free, and yam- free. It works by providing essential nutrients to the atrophied vaginal soft tissue. Essential nutrients include vitamins and minerals. Essential means that without these nutrients in the diet humans cannot survive. Therefore, NeuEve is safe for cancer survivors.

As opposed to dietary supplements, NeuEve delivers these nutrients topically to the atrophied vaginal tissue, like a nutrient cream for stopping wrinkles on the face (atrophy of the skin).

Since NeuEve is hormone-free, technically it does not interfere with cancer treatment. However, we do not recommend women with active cancer to use NeuEve before their cancer is in remission.

Due to recent advancements in medicine, cancer cure rate has improved a lot, but it is not yet 100%. If by any chance the cancer is not completely cured or it recurs later, your oncologist might blame on something else that the patient has used.

If you have active cancer, we suggest that you focus on the cancer treatment first. Once your cancer is in remission, you can use NeuEve without any worries.

The appropriate products for relieving vaginal atrophy for pelvic cancer survivors are

  1. NeuEve Silk suppositories.
  2. NeuEve vulva balm cream.
  3. Dilators.
  4. Nutritional supplements.

Tips about using dilators:

  1. Avoid overstretching. It is understandable that one may wish to move up the sizes quickly to get a more rapid recovery. However, this can be counterproductive. The recovery of vaginal atrophy is a slow process. Moving up the dilator sizes too quickly or skipping sizes can cause overstretching, which in turn can tear the atrophied tissue to cause injuries. Please do not skip the sizes and try the largest dilator first. Please be patient and do the exercise with a stepwise increment to avoid possible injuries due to overstretching. Please give one size dilator at least 3-4 weeks to allow tissue to catch up the growth before moving up to the next size.
  2. Preventing UTI. Physically, dilation exercise is like sexual intercourse. The penetration movement can mobilize bacteria normally on the skin into the bladder to cause UTI. You will need to pee immediately after each exercise to prevent UTI. Urination can flush out any bacteria that entered the bladder during the dilation exercise. Therefore, drinking a lot of water before exercise helps build up the urinating flushing pressure and prevent UTI.
