Alvogen’s Multi-Gyn product line treats and prevents bacterial infections and vaginal dryness, but the majority of women suffer from such discomfort throughout their lives.
Þóra says that there are various reasons why harmful bacteria can recover. “When an imbalance occurs in the flowering of the vagina, an infection can develop. Then harmful bacteria catch up at the expense of good bacteria (Lactobacillus bacteria) and the natural defenses of the mucous membrane weaken. This can happen when vaginal acidity is disturbed. “Acidity can be disrupted in connection with bleeding, hormonal contraception, after taking antibiotics, after sex, due to frequent washing in a cleft area, too tight clothing and also when the woman is under a lot of stress and strain,” says Þóra. Women experience itching and burning in the genital area that is accompanied by a bad smell reminiscent of fish oil and then a bacterial infection can accompany a gray-white or greenish discharge.
Vaginal fungal infection is also common but the fungus Candida albicans is its cause. This fungus is part of the normal flowering of the female vagina but can under certain conditions multiply abnormally and thus cause discomfort.
“Causal factors can be, for example, the intake of antibiotics, pregnancy, hormonal contraceptives, diabetes and more,” says Þóra. “Symptoms of vaginal fungal infections are itching and discomfort in the genital area, a white, thick and lumpy discharge that is reminiscent of cottage cheese, redness and inflammation, and a burning sensation during sex. Vaginal fungal infection is commonly treated with oral antifungal capsules or topical treatments such as creams and vaginal suppositories. However, these treatments can affect the natural microflora of the vagina and cause side effects. ”
Vaginal dryness is associated with hormonal fluctuations
“Vaginal dryness is something that many women also experience at some point in their lives. Vaginal dryness is often caused by a lack of the female hormone estrogen, which makes the mucous membranes thinner, drier and more sensitive. It is therefore common for women to experience these symptoms during and after menopause, “explains Þóra. “Estrogen, however, not only decreases during menopause but can also occur when a woman is breastfeeding, during childbirth and in cancer treatment. Vaginal dryness can also occur due to the use of drugs that affect the hormonal economy, such as certain contraceptives or drugs used to treat endometriosis. “
Other causes of vaginal dryness can be allergies, Sjögren’s disease, heavy soap use and more. Vaginal dryness can contribute to an imbalance in the microflora of the vagina and thus increase the risk of infection. Multi-Gyn treats and prevents discomfort
“Women often do not need to see a doctor regarding all these aforementioned symptoms, but can get products in pharmacies that work well against these problems,” says Þóra. “Alvogen has a Multi-Gyn product line that includes four products to treat and prevent vaginal discomfort such as itching, irritation, burning, bad breath and abnormal discharge. The Multi-Gyn products work instantly, they are natural and gynecologists recommend them. However, it is recommended that women seek medical attention if the symptoms do not decrease with treatment, “says Þóra.
How does Multi-Gyn work?
“Multi-Gyn products contain 2QR, a proprietary compound that differentiates them from similar products on the market and makes them unique. The 2QR compound is a large negatively charged polysaccharide made from the Aloe vera plant. The 2QR compound binds to the surface of microorganisms and prevents the microorganisms from adhering to the vaginal epithelial cells. This prevents microorganisms from entering cells and causing infection, “explains Þóra. “The 2QR compound does not affect a healthy microflora. 2QR acts on a number of different harmful micro-organisms and since the mechanism of action is not specialized, micro-organisms are unlikely to develop resistance to the compound. As well as being an infection control, 2QR also has a cooling and healing effect. There are no known side effects or interactions with the Multi-Gyn products. The products can be used in combination with antibiotics and antifungals. It should be borne in mind that the use of antibiotics is unavoidable in the case of a serious infection “
Multi-Gyn ActiGel is a gel that prevents and treats bacterial infections (vaginal infection) and vaginal discomfort. The gel reduces the main symptoms of bacterial infections in the vagina, such as a bad smell reminiscent of fish oil, a discharge that is watery and gray-white, itching, redness and irritation. An applicator is included for easy vaginal insertion. Can also be used topically on the chest. The tube contains about dosage. Contains 2QR and only natural ingredients. Without any additives.
Multi-Gyn FloraPlus is an effective gel for vaginal fungal infections and its symptoms such as itching, irritation and a thick granular white discharge reminiscent of cottage cheese. FloraPlus contains added sugars that stimulate and support the growth of good Lactobacillus bacteria and promote proper acidity in the vagina. Contains 2QR and added sugars. Without any additives. Multi-Gyn FloraPlus affects vaginal acidity (low pH) and since sperm is alkaline (high pH) it can inhibit sperm activity when FloraPlus is used. Therefore, FloraPlus should not be used for several hours after intercourse if you want to get pregnant.
