This product has not been studied in the us, and is not regulated by the fda. Its ingredients include vitamin e, aloe vera, and pomegranate extract.
If the vaginal tract has lost tightness after childbirth, these anatomical changes cannot be corrected without surgery. If the vaginal mucosa has thinned (usually in the absence of estrogen), then estrogen creams can correct that.

To compensate for high shbg (causes low free t) use 1testim gel daily. Usually raises total t from about 550 to 690. Last month total t =1100. Error?
Probably OK, but...: Drug expiration dates are very conservative. Drugs are not necessarily less effective or have increased risk of side effects after the expiration date. It's just that they haven't been tested beyond that date. But unless stored unsafely (e.g. an especially hot area, like in a car on hot days), they usually are fine. However, for a new infection, best not to self treat. See a doctor to confirm. ...Read more
Ingesting (putting it on the mouth) menthol can be poisonous and even fatal in some cases.
There have been even reports of infants developing respiratory difficulty and turning blue with the application of menthol containing products near the baby's face/ nose (like vapor rub).
Please consult with your pcp if you are planning to use it in another area of your child's body (i will not recommend). ...Read more

Probably safe but...:
There are many articles that discuss potential hazards of Sodium Laureth (and Laurel) Sulfate such as this one:

Probably not helpful: Feminine washes for the most part are likely not helpful. The vaginal pH is meant to be kept a certain level to keep the bad bacteria in check. Changing that pH may make you susceptible to infections, itching and offensive odors. With that said certain brands (i.e. Vagisil and summers eve) claim they make a pH balanced wash which may not be as harmful. ...Read more
I am using femsinol A gel for pimplemarks and Retino A0.025 for warts and freckles. Is it good to use them?
Retin A [tretinoin]: Retin A [tretinoin] is very useful for acne and brown spots. There are more potent forms in case of poor response. Clindamycin is usually a waste of money. Neither of these is of much use for warts. Sometimes Retin A is used for planar warts on the face but it does not do much. ...Read more
Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?
High pH: Cleansers with a high ph (like many soaps) can strip skin of lipids and proteins, leading to dryness, irritation, redness, and, in some cases, even broken skin leading to infection. For this reason, I tend to avoid any cleansers with a high concentration of sodium bicarbonate (with a high ph), as well as most bar soaps. Gels typically contain ingredients that lock in moisture. ...Read more
Is summer eve's vag wash safe? NOt the douche, just Use for external washing, gel like texture, like body wash.
But it's unnecessary: The external only product is probably safe. But it's also not necessary. A warm wash w/ the same item you use all over yourself is enough. If you really have an odor that is bad - it's a reason for an OBGYN exam - not a cover-up. If there's an infection - you need to cure it, not hide it. But yes, use is okay if you're healthy otherwise. ...Read more

Tonight is my last night I have to take flaygl gel for bv but there's still more medicine left should I use it all or juat stick to the 5 days worth?
Finish it all: Finish it all. It's wiser to over-treat than take a chance of under-treating BV. However, metronidazole (Flagyl) gel is not usually the best treatment. If it works, that's great. But if your odor, discharge or other symptoms continue or return after treatment, speak with your doctor about oral treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
