Because Kikay Corner is more than just about shallow, pretty things that women love, today’s feature will be about women’s feminine health and hygiene. Yesterday, together with two other mommy bloggers, I was privileged to meet with Dr. Abe Marinduque, medical director of Beverly Hills 6750.
Dr. Abe Marinduque for Replens and RepHresh
Why am I not surprised that amongst all the countries in the world, Philippines is actually second to Indonesia in the prevalence of the occurrence of bacterial vaginosis. Because our culture leans towards the conservative should not mean that we should be ignorant of things like these.
Above is an excerpt of our Question and Answer with Dr. Bernabe (Abe) Marinduque, who highly recommends RepHresh and Replens, two of the products he first encountered when he was practicing medicine in the United States. He also shared of his attempts of bringing these to the Philippines way before they were locally available. Thanks to New Market Link Pharmaceutical Corporation for finally carrying the brand.
RepHresh Vaginal Gel
Gynecologists all over the world recomend RepHresh, as it is clinically proven to maintain healthy vaginal pH. RepHresh is also FDA approved in the United States. It does not contain hormones, estrogen or antibiotics. It is also proven to help reduce the risk of vaginal infections. It is even proven safe for long term use without worries that it will bring about any side effects. Dr. Abe highly discourages douching. As this dicrupts the natural balance of bacteria and makes women more vulnerable to irritation and infection.
Replens is a non-hormonal estrogen-free vaginal moisturizer, specifically designed for menopausal women to take care of dryness and discomfort.

Before meeting with Dr. Abe, I had no clue that products like these that go beyond just mere superficial washing are commercially available. Both RepHresh and Replens rejuvenate the vaginal lining, eliminate dry skin cells. Keeping infections at bay. These products are now available at all Mercury Drug, Watsons and Southstar Drugstore outlets in Metro Manila.
