What causes white vaginal discharge while using Replens?

I have been using replens for vaginal dryness. I am noticing a discharge that looks like wet white tissue in the opening of my vagina a day or so after using the replens. The product says that the dry skin will be eliminated. Is this the dry skin that I am seeing. This doesn t quite look like the cottage cheese discharge you associate with yeast infection. This tissue is more coarse like wet paper.

I would suggest that you stop using Replens as it contains Benzene which is a toxic chemical.

If you are using Replens for vaginal dryness then you can try other herbal options instead.

The approach of treatment should be returning to the original condition. A normal vagina is not dry. It is well lubricated. Vaginal dryness is a symptom of internal imbalance. Treating the symptom will not cure the disease.

Help your body lubricate the vagina instead of doing it yourself.

Preventive Lifestyle

Drink more water. 5 LTR of water is ideal for daily consumption.

Avoid water just before a meal. It dilutes the digestive juices and retards digestion.

Try yoga for female reproductive system

Vaginal dryness can be caused by stress. Meditation is an ideal treatment for it.


2 tabs Chandraprabha vati with Dashmooladi Kwath early morning empty stomach 1/2 hour before breakfast.

Ashokarishta 10 ml before meals.

Liv52 2 tabs morning and evening

Triphala powder 1tsp before bed.

This might solve your problem permanently. However for Prakrati based treatment consult an Ayurvedic physician personally.
