What is a tablet applicator?
Vaginal infections are often caused by an imbalance of yeast and bacteria that normally live in the vagina. In these conditions, a different odor is caused by an infection caused by a bacterium, yeast or virus. Vaginal yeast infections can be treated at home with over-the-counter vaginal antifungal medications or applicator pills. However, it is always wise to consult a doctor first.
Symptoms of a vaginal infection
- Vaginal itching
- Changes in the amount of vaginal discharge
- Change in the color of vaginal discharge
- Pain or burning when urinating
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal bleeding
Symptoms of a vaginal infection will also vary depending on the cause of the infection, for example:
- Bacterial infections usually cause grayish-white or yellowish discharge. These discharges usually smell like fish.
- Yeast infections usually cause itching and are thick and white.
- Trichomoniasis is a disease that causes vaginal itching and is accompanied by odor. The discharge from this infection is usually yellowish green.

Why use an applicator tablet?
Estrogens are widely distributed throughout the body and are generally found in sex hormones. Estrogens in the blood are mainly transported to sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and albumin. In postmenopausal women, a significant portion of estrogens are converted to sulfate conjugates, which are often excreted in the urine. Vaginal maturity depends on estrogens. Estrogens increase and decrease the number of superficial and middle cells of the vagina. In addition, estrogens maintain the pH of the vagina within the normal range of 4.5. More or less the normal amount of bacteria increases. Symptoms of vaginal atrophy occur due to estrogen deficiency in postmenopausal women, leading to infection and bacterial problems. 10 microgram applicator tablets are effective in treating the symptoms of postmenopausal vaginal atrophy. After 12 weeks of treatment with 10 micrograms of applicator tablets, you will see a significant improvement in vaginal maturity index, normalization of vaginal pH and relief of annoying genital symptoms. Of course, it is very important that you use this medicine exactly as your doctor advised.
