FAQ / Questions-Réponses
Is it safe to use Gynatrof during pregnancy?
Gynatrof can be used throughout pregnancy. However, the vaginal epithelium normally becomes thicker, more lubricated and well supplied with blood during pregnancy (due to increased progesterone activity) which may make it unnecessary for you to use Gynatrof.
Is Gynatrof contraindicated with fertility treatments?
The use of Gynatrof is not contraindicated but could alter the absorption of vaginally administered hormones. As a precaution, we do not suggest they be taken together.
Can Gynatrof be used during menstruation?
We do not recommend Gynatrof be used during your monthly cycle, because some or all of the product will be lost along with your flow. However, women with scarce flow – or limited to few days – should not have problems and can continue to use Gynatrof as directed.
Can the dosage be increased?
There is no contraindication against increasing the dosage.
If a yeast infection is present, can Gynatrof continue to be used?
While Gynatrof does not increase or diminish the infection, we recommend that you first seek treatment for the vaginal infection with specific antimycotic drugs and then restart with Gynatrof after the infection is gone.
How is Gynatrof different from vaginal lubricants on the market?
A vaginal lubricant is not necessarily a vaginal moisturizer – there is a difference! Vaginal lubricants are normally used during intercourse to help a woman that is not able to produce enough of her own vaginal moisture to comfortably (and painlessly) engage in intercourse. These are short acting lubricants that must be used every time. Gynatrof is a moisturizing lubricant. It has the same effect as lubricants when applied before sexual intercourse, but our studies also show that with regular use Gynatrof improves vaginal hydration and decreases feelings of vaginal dryness, inching, and burning, all day long. In other words, Gynatrof has been formulated to both relieve and treat the vaginal atrophy and its underlying symptoms.
Can Gynatrof can be used with a NuvaRing? Will it alter the effectiveness of the NuvaRing?
NuvaRing is a contraceptive vaginal ring used to prevent pregnancy. It is designed to be vaginally released into the body. Gynatrof is also formulated for vaginal release. As Gynatrof may affect your body’s absorption of NuvaRing, we do not suggest they be taken together. When taking Gynatrof, switching to an oral contraceptive is highly recommended.
What happens if Gynatrof is accidentally ingested?
Gynatrof is natural and non toxic. There is no reason to be alarmed if it is accidentally ingested.
Can Gynatrof cause similar side effects to HRT in women with this specific sensitivity?
Gynatrof has been available in Europe since 2006 with no cases of estrogen sensitivity ever reported.
Can Gynatrof be used with condoms?
Yes. Gynatrof can be used with latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane condoms.
How should I store Gynatrof?
Gynatrof should be kept at room temperature, approximately 10-25°C. It should not be exposed to extreme temperatures such as in a refrigerator or in direct sunlight.
