Osphena® is an oral pill
Osphena® is a tablet that you take by mouth. Osphena® does not require vaginal application and is not a cream, gel or suppository that can cause discomfort or get in the way of sexual intimacy.
Osphena® is not an estrogen
Osphena® offers a non-hormonal treatment option for women who prefer not to take estrogen or use estrogen-based products.
Osphena® is a once-daily treatment
Osphena® offers the convenience of a once-daily medication. Simply swallow one Osphena® tablet once daily with a meal and you are done. No need to disrupt your day – or an intimate moment.
Osphena® helps improve the condition of specific vaginal tissue
Unlike vaginal lubricants that only provide temporary relief, Osphena® actually helps improve the condition of specific vaginal tissue by increasing superficial cells and decreasing parabasal cells (two types of vaginal cells) and reducing vaginal pH.
