WHAT DOES IT MEAN,HOW DOES IT WORK
Different ages of woman΄s life is associated with a variety of vaginal conditions,such as vaginal laxity,vaginal dryness and dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse) and stress urinary imcontinence.These may strongly affect the quality of life of a woman,physically,psychologically and sexually.
Childbirth,especially natural and menopause have strong impact to the vaginal tissues.
All these unpleasant conditions tend to worsen over time.That means,that they are not temporary and they are not going to disappear,if not treated.
