Gynatrof Gel is a non-hormonal option for the treatment of vaginal atrophy.
Up to 75% of postmenopausal women experience the symptoms of vaginal atrophy yet only 1 in 4 women with symptoms seek medical help. Vaginal atrophy is a chronic condition accompanied by a range of uncomfortable symptoms – dryness, burning, itching, discomfort during sex. Some degree of vaginal atrophy will affect almost every women as she ages, yet many women don’t seek treatment for it. Left untreated, vaginal atrophy can affect a woman’s relationship with her partner, and can be very detrimental to her quality of life, her self image and her sexuality.
Vaginal atrophy is often treated with hormone therapy, which can be effective but does carry some risks, including breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots. Gynatrof Gel is the only non-hormonal option licensed by Health Canada, indicated for the treatment (symptoms) of vaginal atrophy. This option is helpful for women who do not wish to use hormone therapy, or cannot use it because of other health issues.
What is Gynatrof Gel?
Unlike a vaginal lubricant, Gynatrof Gel is a natural vaginal moisturizing lubricant. While vaginal lubricants are normally used during intercourse to help a woman that is not able to produce enough of her own vaginal moisture to comfortably (and painlessly) engage in intercourse, they are short acting and must be used every time. Gynatrof Gel, on the other hand, has the same effect as a lubricant when applied before sexual intercourse, but studies also show that with regular use it improves vaginal hydration and decreases feelings of vaginal dryness, itching, and burning, all day long. In other words, Gynatrof has been formulated to both relieve and treat the vaginal atrophy and its underlying symptoms.
Gynatrof Gel’s non- hormonal formulation can relieve and treat symptoms including:
- Painful sexual activity
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
The innovative formula consists of 4 key ingredients:
- Hyaluronic Acid: To protect the vaginal skin by enhancing natural lubrication and promoting healing and regeneration of damaged tissues
- Liposomes: Microscopic beads that act as a moisturizer and lubricant to supply long-lasting hydration and increased elasticity
- Hops Plant Extract: To provide lubrication, improve elasticity, tone and firmness of vaginal skin as well as to relieve pain and itching
- Vitamin E: To reduce inflammation
