“Proper lubrication using natural, safe for your vagina products makes all the difference for daily comfort and can help make the experience of intercourse so much more comfortable, reduce pain and even help reduce post-sex inflammation,” said Dr. Peter Rizk, MD.

Fairhaven Health, a global leader in natural, science-based vaginal care products, has launched Sage Personal Lubricant, a water-based, isotonic, pH matched gel that provides temporary relief from vaginal dryness.

Sage is a two-in-one lubricant designed to supplement the body’s natural lubricating fluids, providing both daily moisturization and lubrication during intimacy. Formulated without parabens, Sage is also free of glycerol, estrogen and formulated with lactic acid, clary sage, and xylose.

Nearly 20 percent of women ages 42–53 experience vaginal dryness and 34 percent at ages 57–69*. The leading factors for dryness include menopause, surgical menopause, breastfeeding, chemotherapy, smoking, and anxiety. In addition to daily irritation discomfort, many women experience painful sexual intercourse which can contribute to a loss of sexual desire. The relief of dryness symptoms often leads to an increased sexual desire and arousal.

“Proper lubrication using natural, safe for your vagina products makes all the difference for daily comfort and can help make the experience of intercourse so much more comfortable, reduce pain and even help reduce post-sex inflammation,” said Dr. Peter Rizk, MD. “Research shows that women who are approaching menopause commonly live with increasingly chronic vaginal dryness, which can be alleviated by using a high-quality hormone-free personal lubricant daily. I recommend Sage personal lubricant to all of my patients who are concerned about this type of discomfort, including women who are breastfeeding or undergoing chemotherapy."

The natural lubricant movement has been afoot in the news; however, some falsely believe an all-natural solution is to use coconut oil as an intimate moisturizer or lubricant. Dr. Rizk advises to avoid coconut oil, and other household oils, which can disrupt vaginal bacterial balance causing unintended yeast and bacterial vaginosis (BV) infections.
