Hyalofemme Vaginal Dryness Moisturiser Gel Now Available on Prescription

Hyalofemme Vaginal Dryness Moisturiser Gel is a hormone free vaginal moisturiser which provides rapid and effective relief from the symptoms of itching, burning, inflammation and odour.

It’s pleasant to use and avoids the clumping and messy feeling seen with some other products. The good news is that from the 1st of July it became available for prescription by the NHS. In clinical trials Hyalofemme was shown to reduce the burning and inflammation associated with vaginal dryness and it has also been shown to be effective for women currently taking HRT and who are suffering the side effects of a number of cancer treatments. It is manufactured from a form of hyalyronic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the human body responsible for maintaining high levels of hydration within the tissues whilst at the same time playing a fundamental role in the tissue repair process.

According to Heather Currie (founder of Menopause Matters) “there is a patient group for whom hormone therapy is not advised or preferred and the availability of Hyalofemme on prescription serves to increase patient choice in treating vaginal dryness”.

Studies have been undertaken by Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A., the developer and manufacturer of Hyalofemme®.  In a representative group of 80 women suffering from vaginal dryness, it was found that the application of Hyalofemme® once every three days resulted in significant reduction of the bothersome symptoms of burning, itching and inflammation.

Hyalofemme® did not alter the natural acid-alkaline balance in the vagina. The majority of users found Hyalofemme® to give excellent persistent hydration and an enhanced feeling of wellbeing.

At the start of the study, only 7.5% of people on the trial were experiencing no burning and by the end, 54% of them reported that the burning had gone completely. Around 39% of patients had no itching at the start; 89% were itch-free at the end. Dyspareunia was “moderate or considerable” in 44% at entry; that reduced to zero after the 30-day period. And 100% reported complete absence of unpleasant odour.

  1. More people should know about this product. I was only told of Replens and had terrible experiences with it – clumping and itching and feeling uncomfortable and dirty. I can’t use any hormone therapies after a lumpectomy and was dismissed by an Oncologist who was rude and uncaring saying that it was basically ‘tough’ and the choice was Replens or no sex ever… I read on many internet groups, women from various countries, have had the same response and not once did hyalofemme get mentioned. My husband amazingly found it – even though I had been researching on line also! We tried it and it has solved everything. I can not recommend it highly enough and hope that other women will discover it. I intend to revisit some of those sites I found previously to let them know about the product. My own Dr was happy I found it – but had not recommended it herself (as she didn’t know of it at the time!) and none of us were aware it is on prescription – until reading this site.

  2. I tried lots of different applications of various vaginal gels after being diagnosed with Vaginal Atrophy. I informed my GP of the benefits of Hyalofemme in comparison with Replens that my doctor had prescribed. My first trial of it was after buying it on line . Theres No comparison as Hyalofemme has had a lot more affect. I have been using it for over a year now and it has stopped the uncomfortable burning and itching. Reccomend it 100%.
