Who gets vaginal dryness?
Although loss of vaginal moisture is most common among women who are menopausal (i.e. have not had a period for 12 months), it can affect younger women. Vaginal dryness occurs due to hormonal changes after menstruation, postpartum, during breast feeding or during peri-menopause (typically ages 40 to 50) or as a side-effect of taking certain medications, such as oral contraceptives, antidepressants, and antihistamines.

Why does Mae have sucrose?
Topical sucrose has been shown to be as effective as metronidazole (an antibiotic) in curing bacterial vaginosis. Topical sucrose has also been shown in clinical trials to help with yeast infections. It’s a common misconception that topical sucrose feeds yeast infections when, in fact, it is only ingested sucrose that contributes to yeast. The reason is that topical sucrose feeds the right type of bacteria for the optimal vaginal environment.
