Normalizing Conversations About Our Bodies

This post is sponsored by RepHresh, the maker of feminine hygiene products, and SheKnows Media.

I recently had the pleasure of attending a Google Hangout sponsored by the brand RepHresh, the maker of feminine hygiene products, with special guest host Naama Bloom from Hello Flo. If you aren't familiar with Naama you may be familiar with the hilariously funny videos that Hello Flo puts out all about periods like the First Moon Party video. The hour-long talk was all about normalizing conversations with women about their bodies. As women we tend to shy away from those conversations often times seeing them as taboo, embarrassing or just down right uncomfortable. However as women we need to speak up more about our bodies especially out reproductive health.

During the conversation we also talked frankly about the different times vaginal pH is thrown off and I learned that an odour can be a common sign of a pH imbalance. Here are some common reasons why women experience pH imbalances:

  • Menstruation
  • Use of tampons
  • Intercourse
  • Use of douching and cleansers
  • Menopause

I learned that RepHresh makes a number of products to help women during these times. There is the RepHresh Vaginal Gel and RepHresh Washes (gentle enough to use daily). If you need something to balance yeast and bacteria there is RepHresh Pro-B Feminine Probiotic.

RepHresh Vaginal Gel is clinically shown to maintain healthy vaginal pH which can help eliminate odour and discomfort. The gel can be used once every 3 days and a single application can maintain vaginal pH in the normal range for up to 72 hours. Another area that we talked about was probiotics and how they aid in helping to balance yeast and bacteria. I knew that probiotics were used for digestive health but I had no clue the role they can play in vaginal health. RepHresh Pro-B has been clinically shown to help balance yeast and bacteria with just one capsule per day. Engaging in these conversations is so important to help us become more aware and informed about our bodies. These conversations can help so many women better understand their bodies that may suffer silently because they are embarrassed to speak up.
