Q&A

Who can benefit from using Juvia?

JUVIA has been developed for women suffering from vaginal dryness. It nourishes and moisturizes the mucous membrane of the sensitive, dry vagina.

What causes vaginal dryness?

Nearly every woman will experience vaginal dryness sometime in her life. It is most often associated with the normal decline or fluctuation of the female hormone estrogen. This fluctuation can be triggered by childbirth, breastfeeding or menopause. Dryness can also be caused by taking certain medications, exercising intensively or being under stress. It is also common to experience vaginal dryness when douching, using tampons or at the end of the menstrual cycle.

How does Juvia work?

Juvia has a dual mode of action:
Hydration on the surface of the vaginal mucosa
Juvia binds to and holds large amounts of water inside the vagina, primarily with the help of its HEC content. This means constant hydration on the mucosal surface.
Regeneration of connective tissue
A decrease in the production of estrogen hormone leads to a decrease in the amount of elastin and collagen that provide elasticity in the vaginal connective tissue. Zinc, as a cofactor for collagen-elastin synthesizing enzymes, contributes to halting and reversing these changes in the connective tissue.

How often should Juvia be used?

For most women, Juvia should be used every three days for best results. However, depending on the severity of your dryness, Juvia can be used more or less frequently, as necessary. Juvia is safe to use daily.

When should Juvia be used?

Juvia can be used any time of day or night. Juvia works best when used on a regular schedule and not just prior to intercourse. Because Juvia delivers long-lasting moisture, there is no need to apply it just prior to intercourse. We recommend using Juvia at least 2 hours prior to intercourse to allow proper moisturization.

How do I use Juvia?

Apply directly into the vagina with the use of an applicator (included in the package). Attach the applicator to the end of the tube to absorb the desired amount of gel (approximately 2ml gel per occasion).

Will Juvia make intimacy more enjoyable?

One of the most common ways that women discover vaginal dryness is during intimacy. When used regularly, Juvia replenishes your natural vaginal moisture, making intimacy more enjoyable. Juvia’ s formula delivers long-lasting moisture so sexual intercourse can be more spontaneous. Since Juvia does not need to be applied immediately before intercourse, it does not interrupt the moment. Instead, Juvia provides long-lasting lubrication whenever the moment is right.

Can Juvia be used as birth control?

No. Juvia does not contain spermicide. It is not a contraceptive.

Can you use Juvia before getting a pap smear?

We recommend stopping the use of Juvia four days before getting a pap smear.

Should I use Juvia during my period?

Juvia is safe for use anytime, but some women may experience discharge if used during their period. It is best to resume use of Juvia after your flow completely stops.

Is Juvia compatible with condoms?

Yes, Juvia is compatible with natural rubber latex, polyisoprene, and polyurethane condoms.

What are the ingredients of Juvia?

Juvia contains the following ingredients: purified water, hydroxyethylcellulose, zinc sulphate, lactic acid, sodium chloride and potassium sorbate.

Does Juvia contain hormone, glycerin, fragrance or paraben?

No, Juvia does not include any of the above.

Can Juvia trigger an allergic reaction?

Yes, if you are allergic to zinc. Our experience has shown that it can be safely used in all other cases.

Does Juvia have similar side effects as hormone replacement therapies (e.g. vaginal estrogen creams, tablets or rings) for vaginal dryness?

No. Juvia does not cause the same side effects that are associated with many prescription vaginal estrogens (i.e. creams or tablets). While most vaginal estrogens are considered safe and effective in treating vaginal dryness, higher doses or more frequent use of vaginal estrogens can increase systemic estrogen levels and potentially cause side effects. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of non-hormonal options.
