Ask the Nurse

What is the percentage/millgram rate of dosing vaginally of hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a non-hormonal alternative that can safely and effectively treat vaginal dryness. It can be found online and over the counter, and the standard dose is 5mg of sodium hyaluronate. However, when compared to vaginal estrogen, hyaluronic acid did not improve the integrity of the vaginal tissue and really only provided symptomatic relief for half of the women in the study. Be sure to speak with your women's health provider if you are experiencing symptoms of dryness or painful intercourse to see which therapy would be best for you.
