Have you heard about VagiKool? The first reusable cold pack specifically contoured and designed for the most sensitive and delicate area of a woman’s body. Unless you are having a C-section be aware that your vagina is going to go through a traumatic experience. Sure we all know someone who broke water, dropped, and delivered in one hour without any pain, but that is not the norm. Delivery can take up to 24 hours (or more) and when that 7 plus pound bundle of joy is ready to enter the world there is nothing that you can do to stop him/her (not that you want too) until you hear the words that you are tearing or that the doctor wants to do an episiotomy (e·pi·si·ot·o·my). Basically for delivery there are three possible scenarios that all have the same ending; You are going to be sore “down there”: 1. You DON’T tear. If your perineum (the area between your vagina and anus) is intact after delivery, the area will be stretched and bruised. Pain or discomfort can last between three to five weeks (and believe it or not) it may hurt to cough, sneeze, blow your nose, and even sit down for as much as a week after delivery. 2. You DO tear. Nine out of Ten new moms feel sore at the tear site which may require stitches. You are looking at one to two weeks for the area to fully recover and you may experience soreness for a few weeks after the stitches are gone (if you had any). Figure on a six to eight week recovery before you are not thinking about it anymore. DISCRETE, CLOSE-TO-BODY, & NEAR INVISIBLE FIT! 3. You have an episiotomy. For those of you that haven’t heard the term, an episiotomy is when your Ob/GYN cuts the muscular area between the vagina and the anus made just before delivery to enlarge the vaginal opening. So what can you do afterwards to ease the pain of delivering a baby? Before you got pregnant taking a pill was the quick and easy way to manage pain, but as a new (possibly nursing) mom that may not be a good decision. Many medications are not safe for nursing mothers to use because they may pass through your breastmilk to the baby. Ice is one of the most effective ways to relieve pain, but icing your vaginal area may not be the easiest thing to do. After all a big bulky ice pack or bag of frozen peas wasn’t made to fit comfortably between your legs! Enter, the VagiKool® Reusable Feminine Cold Pack. It soothes in seconds, and it is the first reusable cold pack specifically contoured and designed for the most sensitive and delicate area of a woman’s body. VagiKool® is made of a soft, strong medical grade polyvinyl that molds itself to the shape of a woman’s body. Its targeted cold relief reduces swelling, burning and itching pain while promoting healing. VagiKool is Non-Toxic and Latex Free and best of all is Made in the USA. VagiKool’s® Komfort-fit™ design provides for discrete concealment with its close-to-body near invisible fit – nobody will know you have it on unless you tell them!
