Vagina Suppository Q&A: You Asked, We Answered

 

 

As you may know we just launched our all-natural, certified organic vaginal suppository. *holds for applause* This product is unlike any product in our vaginal health lineup because it goes inside the vagina to offer quick, concentrated relief from yeast infections and other common vulvovaginal issues. 

 

But since this product is a bit different from others, we figured you would have some questions. So we took to Instagram to ask all of you what you wanted to know! Here are our answers to the most frequently asked questions about our vaginal suppository: 

 

So…What Are Vaginal Suppositories?

Vaginal suppositories are a vaginal infection cure that is inserted  into the vagina in order to treat vaginal infections and vulvovaginal discomfort. These vaginal suppositories contain antibacterial, anti-fungal, and skin-soothing agents or other beneficial ingredients that help treat symptoms, such as itching, discharge, and pain.

 

How Do They Work?

Vaginal Suppositories work by delivering a medication deep inside the vagina, where it's needed most. Because suppositories are inserted directly into the vaginal, the ingredients are directly absorbed by the walls of your vagina to treat the vaginal infection in a quick and efficient manner.

 

Are There Any Side Effects? 

Our vaginal suppositories are relatively low risk and all ingredients are FDA labeled GRAS (generally regarded as safe). However, if this is the first time experiencing vaginal infections symptoms, or you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medication, we recommend consulting a medical professional. Ya know, just to be safe! 

 

How Effective Are They?

Because vaginal suppositories are inserted directly into the vagina, you are getting the most concentrated version of each ingredient and you are not losing any of the product in other parts of the body (like you would with an oral medication). This makes suppositories very effective at offering quick and thorough relief from vaginal infections and vulvovaginal discomfort. 

 

How do you insert them?

The first step is to WASH YOUR HANDS! Once hands are clean, use your index finger to insert the suppository into your vagina and let the suppository dissolve. We recommend using a suppository once or twice daily as symptoms require for up to seven days. 

 

What are the ingredients?

Our vaginal suppositories are made from 100% all-natural, certified organic, and flora-friendly ingredients that have been proven to restore balance to the vaginal microbiome. 

 

Here are the ingredients in each vaginal suppository:

Organic Beechwood (Kreosotum)
