Vaginal dryness results in women not having not having the best sexual health experience

Healthy vaginal tissue is thick, well-lubricated with great blood flow. During the years leading up to menopause and after menopause, the tissue of the vagina become thin, dry and easily inflamed which occurs because the body is producing less estrogen. Over a 17-year long study that tracked 2,435 midlife women in the US, 60% reported vaginal dryness. Of the women who reported vaginal dryness, 50% did not even think to ask their healthcare provider, thinking that it was just part of aging and being a woman. [7]

Painful sex & Sexual discomfort
It’s normal. Every woman undergoes similar declines in their hormonal levels, and we’re here to help.

The most well-known effects of the menopause are due to the decline of estrogen & testosterone. Reductions in sexual motivation, sexual arousal, vaginal lubrication, and increase in pain and discomfort are all associated with decreasing hormone levels. By supplementing these hormones vaginally, we’re able to improve satisfaction during sex and reduce pain.

Treatment Details
Vaginal Estrogen (Estradiol)

Estrogen (estradiol) is a hormone primarily found in the ovaries. Over time, the ovaries decrease production of estradiol which causes the various undesirable effects encompassing menopause. Vaginal estrogen works to restore the health of the tissues in the vagina and vulva. The estrogen in the medication binds to receptors of the vaginal tissue cells and causes the same action as the hormone naturally occurring prior to menopause, leading to the relief of symptoms of a postmenopausal or low estradiol state.

Only 4%

of women affected with vaginal dryness actively use any of the many proven therapies that include vaginal estrogen tablets, creams, and rings that alleviate these pain points.

Treatment

The estrogen in the medication binds to receptors of the vaginal tissue cells and causes the same action as the hormone. Estradiol is a hormone that is identical to the estrogen produced by our bodies that is plant-derived and FDA-approved.

what they’re saying

“No amount of words could fully explain how much Odela has changed my life.”

I feel born again, like I’m in my 20s! Before Odela, I felt like I had dried up and lost myself completely. Now, I feel renewed, confident, and so much happier in my sex life.

"Odela has done so much for me. You are a life-changing company.”

I used to feel pain and discomfort and barely have any sensation. I was rarely able to orgasm, especially from penetrative sex. But now all that has changed. I love having sex and sharing that with my partner. I have a new life!
