2. How do I use RepHresh?
RepHresh is simple and easy to use. The applicator is inserted into the vagina just like a tampon. After pressing the thick end of the applicator, a small amount of clear gel enters the vagina. Please look inside your RepHresh package for complete directions.

3. How often should I use RepHresh?
RepHresh should be used once every three days for best results. It may be helpful to use RepHresh during the times you are most susceptible to higher pH levels, such as after your period or sex. Your doctor can help you figure out when you are most susceptible to higher pH levels based on your medical history.

4. Can I use RepHresh while I’m on my period?
Yes, but it’s not recommended. The gel may stick to blood and form clumps, which can be unpleasant. However, blood from your period can cause your pH level to rise and become unbalanced. To help avoid this, use RepHresh 3 days before and immediately after your period to maintain a healthy vaginal pH balance.

9. Can menopausal women use RepHresh?
Yes. Actually, the use of RepHresh during and after menopause can help eliminate the vaginal dryness and discomfort that often occurs during these times. Or if you just want a long-lasting vaginal moisturizer, try Replens Long-Lasting Feminine Moisturizer, by the makers of RepHresh.

11. Can I have oral sex/intercourse while using RepHresh?
Yes, both oral sex and intercourse are safe while using RepHresh. In fact, the use of RepHresh can even help lessen discomfort after intercourse. Also, because the pH level of sperm is high, it can cause your vaginal pH to become unbalanced. The use of RepHresh after sex will keep your vaginal pH balanced. And by maintaing a balanced pH, RepHresh also helps control vaginal odor, which may make you and your partner feel more comfortable during those intimate moments.

12. Can I take RepHresh with other medications?
RepHresh has no known interactions with other medications. As with all products, you should consult your physician if you have concerns..

13. Does RepHresh do anything for vaginal odor?
Yes. Vaginal odor is often about pH balance, not bad hygiene. If you are uncomfortable with your normal vaginal odor, the use of RepHresh will balance your pH and begin eliminating odor immediately after the first use. However, unusual vaginal odor can be a symptom of a more serious problem, and in this case you should see your doctor for a correct diagnosis.

14. How do I know I am depositing the right amount of RepHresh?
The pre-filled applicator is designed to deposit the recommended amount of RepHresh. When used as directed, a small amount of RepHresh will remain in the applicator after use. Discard this excess product along with the applicator.

15. Where can I buy RepHresh?
RepHresh is available in the feminine care aisle at most drug, grocery and discount stores and here on the web, just click the Purchase button from the above menu. If your store does not carry RepHresh, simply ask your pharmacist to order it for you. Most are happy to do so.

16. Does RepHresh have any side effects?
Some women may notice a residue after use of RepHresh—this is caused by the elimination of dry vaginal cells. Your body naturally sheds dry vaginal tissue that has built up over time. RepHresh helps this happen, leaving softer, suppler tissue behind. When used on a regular basis, RepHresh will help prevent the buildup of dried skin cells and the discharge should become less. If the discharge does not become less, you may want to wait an extra day or two between applications.
