Using INTRAROSAINTRAROSA instructions for use

When used daily at bedtime, INTRAROSA can provide relief from moderate to severe painful sex after menopause in 12 weeks.

It’s important to use INTRAROSA once daily at bedtime, as your healthcare provider prescribed. Remember that there are many changes that happen in and around the vagina during menopause that can lead to painful sex. Just as this condition took time to develop, treating it successfully can take up to 12 weeks.

How should I use INTRAROSA vaginal inserts?

  • INTRAROSA is a vaginal insert that you place in your vagina with an applicator that comes with INTRAROSA vaginal inserts
  • Use 1 INTRAROSA vaginal insert, one time each day at bedtime
  • Each applicator is for one-time use only
  • Empty your bladder and wash your hands before handling the vaginal insert and applicator
  • Tear off 1 vaginal insert along the perforations from the 7-vaginal insert strip
  • INTRAROSA should be stored at 41°F to 86°F (5°C to 30°C). It can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. To avoid higher temperatures that could cause INTRAROSA to melt, don't store INTRAROSA in areas like a hot car, a sunny window sill, or directly near a heater.
