Looking to Keep Your Peach Peachy?:Whether you’re 20, 40, or 80, Estriol Can Help!
09/18/2021

There aren’t many magazines with headlines about the health of your vagina. There’s no school class about womens’ delicate hormone balance and how it changes over the years. But, there are a million books, articles and products talking all about sex and our vaginas. It can often seem like the focus of attention is whether our vajazzle is ready for some razzle-dazzle.


Whether you're in the periods, pregnancy or menopausal stage, your vagina, and your hormonal health, has more to do with how you feel than about whether it works for anyone else. Vaginal health plays a role in our overall health, from comfort or discomfort, to self-esteem, to intimacy (alone or with others).

For younger women, there can be the harmful stigma that your vajayjay should be some sort of Shangri-La of perfection, with nary a trouble, except periods which are totally gross... Oh, or if you’ve had babies, then your vagina is obviously ruined… And, if you’re post menopausal, then there’s actually tumbleweeds and a closed sign down there…

Well, excuse us, but Hell No.F*%K that

Keeping the flow down below starts with good vaginal health. See our 6 Tips For Your LadyBits Blog for our guide. Your body is not in a fixed state, and there are solutions to the issues that your vagina may have.

One solution is estriol. A mild hormone, it can have powerful effects on our vaginal health, and for younger women there are some specific situations in which it can be particularly useful.

Firstly, after the vaginal delivery of a baby. This experience, though joyful and incredibly productive (i.e. a new small Being), can create rips in vaginal, perineal, and often anal tissue. Sometimes an episiotomy has created some nice clear edges which can then be resewn. However, often the skin rips leaving tears which, when resewn, results in lots of scar tissue. The body will work hard to heal the damaged skin. Estriol can help with the healing process by promoting regrowth and healing ensuring a regular supply ofto the damaged tissue.

**For premenopausal women still cycling, Silky Peach Cream can be used daily during days 1-15 of the cycle, to follow following the natural surge of estrogen in the first half of the cycle.**

Secondly, it can be helpful in cases of both early surgical menopause as well as for natural menopause. For many reasons, women have hysterectomies before the natural age of menopause. The ovaries are the main supply of estrogen and are often left in place. But, they do rely in part on the feedback communication system from the uterus to make hormones. With a uterus removed, the other hormones related to the reproductive cycle will slow production because that feedback stops. This eventually mimics natural menopause with a drop in amounts of progesterone and estrogen made by the ovaries.

And we know what happens to your vajazzle without estrogen; some women might report symptoms to their doctor – but it’s the popular symptoms that get the attention – hot flashes, night sweats, foggy thinking. Less often reported is vaginal dryness. Some women go for years and years with a dry vagina and painful sex, not realizing there is a solution.

Driven largely by the media, menopause is often thought of in a negative (and wrinkly) light, as are postpartum bodies. However, this is often due to the fact that it is not openly talked about, and when women do face issues, they may not be aware of how they are all connected. We’re trying to change this with what we call, ‘The Girlfriend Network’.

Our goal is to share information, our problems, and potential solutions. Our company has been propelled by the Girlfriend Network, and if you think Silky Peach could be the cream of someone’s dreams, be sure to share!

Estriol – a solution for a happy hoohaa before menopause

Hoohaa health is not something we tend to talk to our moms about. There’s something about the healthy boundary of not getting into that kind of detail with the women who helped you learn to brush your teeth, tidy your room, and learn to drive!

And yet – vaginal health is an issue for more than post menopausal women…younger women can be affected too. There are some specific situations where estriol can help:

1.After a vaginal delivery of a baby. This experience though joyful and incredibly productive (i.e. a new small Being), can create rips in vaginal, perineal, and often anal tissue. Sometimes an episiotomy has created some nice clear edges which can them be resewn. Often times the skin rips leaving tears which, when resewn, results in lots of scar tissue. We don’t see this kind of discussion on Call the Midwife! The body will work hard to heal the damaged skin. Estriol can help with the healing process by ensuring a regular supply to the damaged tissue.

For premenopausal women still cycling, Silky Peach Cream can be used daily during days 1-15 of the cycle, following the natural surge of estrogen in the first half of the cycle.

2.Early surgical menopause. For many reasons, women have hysterectomies before the natural age of menopause. The ovaries are the main supply of estrogen and are often left in place. But - they do rely in part on the feedback communication system from the uterus to make hormones. With a uterus removed, the other hormones related to the reproductive cycle will slow production because that feedback cross talk stops. This eventually mimics natural menopause with a drop in amounts of progesterone and estrogen made by the ovaries. And we know what happens to your vajazzle without estrogen. Some women might report symptoms to their doctor – but it’s the popular symptoms that get the attention – hot flashes, night sweats, foggy thinking, less often reported is vaginal dryness. Some women go for years and years with a dry vagina and painful sex, not realizing there is a solution.

So, although we tend to think about post menopause as the real dry and wrinkly time…it can happen before that too. We think it’s time to talk about this, at any age. Our girlfriend networks are the way we share our problems and the way we find out new solutions. It is the girlfriend network that got this company off the ground. If you or someone you know had an early hysterectomy, Silky Peach Cream might turn out to be the Cream of their Dreams.
