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.

Survey Methodology

An online survey of 500 adult women was conducted from March 18th thru April 11th by Harris Interactive.
