Customer Question

HI there, I have vagina dryness and on the last few day of my menstrual cycle, however, there is bright red blood when I wipe. Which concerns me. Could this be the dryness?
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: just a day or two
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no when using tampons I actually think it made it worse but the blood seems to be external (not internal)

Hello,

the symptoms you describe can be caused by local hormonal imbalance. I would recommend the use of lactic acid (over the counter at pharmacy), this will regulate the vaginal flora.

Kind regards,
