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. That's the major finding from the Vagisil(R) Voice for Women survey, administered to U.S. women, ages 18 and older, by independent research firm Harris Interactive.

In recognition of National Women's Health Week (May 11 - 17), Vagisil(R) is encouraging women to let go of their fears and seek help when dealing with an uncomfortable situation "down there."

Although more than 85 percent of women agree that occasional vaginal discomfort is a natural part of every adult woman's life, it does not stop the majority of them from suffering with strong emotions like frustration (80 percent), increased self-consciousness (68 percent) and even anger (29 percent), when experiencing vaginal discomfort. 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.

"It's understandable that women might feel unattractive or unclean when they have vaginal discomfort, but there's absolutely no reason why they should," says Leslie Reisner, PhD, a clinical psychologist specializing in emotional wellness.
