Peptonic Medical (publ) (“Peptonic” or “Company”) today announced that the results of a recently conducted survey among women that have used VagiVital® indicate a very strong treatment effect. Of more than two hundered respondents of the survey, three out of four reported symptom relief, regardless for how long they had used VagiVital®. Of those women who had used VagiVital® for two months or longer, nine out of ten reported symptom relief.
The survey was performed during the period of December 2018 to mid January 2019.
– These results are of course very encouraging and effectively verify the results of the VagiVital® clinical study, that is, that the product provides strong symptom relief to those suffering from vaginal atrophy and dryness, says Dr Johan Inborr, CEO of Peptonic Medical. This explains the good reception of the product among users and the increasing repurchase rates.
Respondents also agreed that the applicator is easy to use and that the instructions for use are easy to follow. A vast majority of the respondents would ‘most likely’ recommend VagiVital® to a friend.

VagiVital®is a patent pending hormone free self-care product for the treatment of vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness. The product has been tested in randomised clinical studies (vaginal atrophy) with very positive results both for objective (vaginal pH and proportion of superficial cells in the vaginal mucosa) and subjective (most bothersome symptoms, such as vaginal dryness, vaginal irritation/itching, dyspareunia and dysuria) parameters. The magnitude of symptom relief is on par with that demonstrated with e.g. prescription estrogen based products on the market today. It was very well tolerated and caused no serious adverse effects.
VagiVital®was launched in Sweden as a non-prescription self-care product in July 2018 (see www.vagivital.com).
