How To Use Replens
Replens is a long-lasting vaginal moisturizer. The lubricant is available over the counter without a prescription. Replens works to eliminate vaginal dryness by adhering to the vaginal wall, decreasing and removing dry skin cells. This allows the vagina to restore natural moisture. Using the personal lubricant on a routine basis, every three days, is supposed to effectively restore a comfortable moisture balance.
Plan a schedule for using Replens. The lubricant is most effective when applied in the mornings, every 72 hours.
Remove a pre-filled applicator from the Replens box and open the wrapper.
Hold the thicker end of the applicator and shake all lubricant down to the other end.
Twist and remove the cap on the thin end of the applicator.
Squat or lie on back with knees bent and insert the thin end of the applicator into the vagina.
Press the opposite end of the applicator to expel the entire amount of gel into the vagina.
Remove applicator and discard.

- Know how Replens work. Replens, which is made of 79% water, sticks to the walls of the vagina. The water then penetrates the dehydrated tissues, helping it produce its natural secretions and also helping improve the vaginal walls’ elasticity. Replens also serves to remove the dry skin cells present, to make way for newer cells.
- Know the components of Replens. As mentioned, Replens is made mostly of purified water. Apart from it, the other components are glycerin, mineral oil, hydrogenated palm oil glyceride, Carbomer 074P, sorbic acid and sodium hydroxide.
- Know how to apply Replens. Replens comes with a specially-designed applicator for precise application. Take the pre-filled applicator and shake it vigorously until the lubricant goes down from the thick end towards the thin end. Now, remove the cover from the thin end by twisting it off. Bring the applicator to the vagina, letting the thin end of the applicator penetrate a little so that it is securely in contact with the vagina. The key here is to let the thin end of the applicator go as far as possible in the vagina, for effective application. Then, press the thick end of the applicator until the entire amount of Replens in the applicator is expelled in the vagina.
