My symptoms are dryness and atrophy (painful sex). How to select the right product to start?

Vaginal atrophy is not a disease. It is an aging outcome. It appears when a woman gets older, often after menopause.

The good news is that applying NeuEve can help stop, delay and reverse vaginal atrophy. It is like putting cream on the face to stop wrinkles.

The woman’s age often determines her severity of the atrophy.

In addition to symptoms like dryness and painful sex, major features of the atrophy include shrinking of the vaginal cavity, thinning of the lining and lack of elasticity.

Additionally, women with atrophy often suffer chronic injuries in vaginal tissues due to intercourse or even just by dryness. These include tissue abrasion, bruising, tearing, and micro-cracks with bleeding and underlying inflammation.

The older the age, the more severe the atrophy, and the more sensitive to anything, even to nutrients in NeuEve formulas at a later phase. Therefore, we have developed 6 NeuEve formulas with increasing nutrient strengths from mild to strong:

Sensitive Cream--> Cream-->Sensitive Silk-->Silk-->Silver-->Gold, for women at different ages.

Based on a woman’s age, we recommend the following:

  • <40, can directly use Gold, often for BV relief or vaginal dryness caused by birth control, IUD, PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), or breastfeeding. There is no severe atrophy before age 40. A young woman on breastfeeding can experience vaginal dryness. This is temporary and may gradually recover after weaning. During breastfeeding, we recommend the use of NeuEve Silver (for the first month) and Gold (after the first month) for dryness relief.
  • 40-50, start with Silver and can move to Gold phase in 1-4 months.
  • 50-60, start with Silk and move to Silver phase in 1-4 months and then move to Gold phase in 1-4 months.
  • 60-65, start with Silk plus cream, and then move to Silk only, and to Silver phase and later to Gold phase.
  • 65-70, start with Cream for 1 month and then move to Silk phase, and later to Silver phase.
  • >70, if sexually active and painful sex is an issue, start with Sensitive Silk for one month and then move to the regular Silk for continued recovery.  If not sexually active and the only discomforts are itching and dryness, start with Sensitive Cream, using a tiny little bit (a grain of rice size) to the external vulva daily for 3-4 months or for completing the first jar of the cream. Then, move to the regular NeuEve cream to speed up the recovery.
  • If discomfort symptoms are severe, combine the use of suppository and Cream may help speed up the recovery.

Note: The NeuEve cream is for itching at any age, but for helping ease the atrophy, you can use NeuEve cream even without itching. This is like to apply cream for stopping wrinkles even without discomfort. To date, the oldest woman who benefited from NeuEve is 92. Therefore, applying NeuEve early and often can better help defy aging.

In addition to aging, other health conditions can also accelerate vaginal atrophy. These include cancer therapy (especially breast and ovarian cancer therapy), pelvic radiation therapy, oophorectomy, hysterectomy, lichen sclerosus, and medications like antihypertensive, antiallergics and antidepressants. If you have any of these conditions, you can use the above recommendation by adding 10 years to the age for the selecting product purpose.
