Study Finds More Than One in Two Women are Too Embarrassed to Discuss Vaginal Discomfort With Their Doctors

Vagisil(R) Encourages Women to 'Speak Up For Down There' During National

Women's Health Week

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite living in a society that promotes images and icons of female empowerment like "Sex and the City's" Carrie Bradshaw, popular sex therapist Dr. Sue Johannsen and even former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Conner, more than one in two women are embarrassed and uncomfortable discussing pertinent issues of vaginal health.

Additionally, more than three quarters of women (77 percent) do not feel sexy or feminine when experiencing vaginal discomfort and 68 percent even feel unclean.
