For clinical use, Astroglide personal lubricant is particularly useful when treating vaginal dryness associated with:
- Painful sex
- New motherhood
- Oral contraceptive use
- Strenuous exercise
- Vulval problems
- Medication (i.e Tamoxifen, danazol, leuprolide)
- The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is a user of Astroglide.
Astroglide personal lubricant can also be used in conjunction with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), aiding vaginal lubrication during the early stages of treatment.
More than 7 million women in the UK are affected by vaginal dryness. Many suffer in silence, believing it’s a private, non-discussible problem. But it can be easily resolved with an OTC product: Astroglide Personal Lubricant, which closely resembles mucin, the body’s own lubricant. Astroglide, like mucin, is a clear, slightly viscous gel with a pH that is compatible with vaginal mucosa. Its water-based, water-soluble ingredients are greaseless and provide sustaining moisturising properties.
Intended for OTC consumer use as a personal lubricant, Astroglide is compatible with condoms, diaphragms, tampons, douches, and enemas.
Astroglide, also ideal for general office use by health care providers, is recommended as a lubricant for routine pelvic or rectal examinations and for use with gloves and instruments used in non-sterile procedures. It is easy to apply and remove, requiring only a damp cloth.
