The Vagisil(R) Voice for Women survey showed that, in relation to women 30 years old and up, younger women were more likely to feel self-conscious (78 percent v. 61 percent), nervous that it could be something more serious (72 percent v. 57 percent) or that they've done something wrong (33 percent v. 17 percent) when experiencing vaginal discomfort. The survey also revealed that 62 percent of women never thought about talking to their daughter(s) about vaginal discomfort. Vagisil(R) believes that National Women's Health Week offers the perfect opportunity to have an open conversation about vaginal health, which might help prevent any misconceptions and negative feelings your daughter might be apt to experience.

"There is an underlying emotional toll to vaginal itch and discomfort that is often not addressed. This survey will be monumental to informing women that life does not have to stop, and they do not have to suffer in silence anymore," says Jane Wadler, vice president of marketing for Vagisil.

Survey Methodology

An online survey of 500 adult women was conducted from March 18th thru April 11th by Harris Interactive. The survey targeted a sample of women ages 18 and over who have experienced vaginal discomfort which includes yeast infections or other vaginal infections, as well as vaginal itching, odor, irritation, discharge, pain or burning. The survey, conducted on behalf of Combe Inc., explored the emotional and physical impact of vaginal discomfort of women in the above demographic.
