Compounding for Women's Health Conditions (PFM On-demand)


Oftentimes, commercially available products not designed for vaginal use are prescribed for this intention. However, the vaginal mucosa and surrounding vulvovestibular area is a sensitive and delicate region requiring specialized preparations designed for vaginal use. Inert ingredients, preservatives, bases used, and pH must all be taken into account with medications that are prescribed for vaginal application. Therefore, identifying what is appropriate for vaginal use, especially when it comes to nonsterile compounding, is needed among compounding pharmacists. 

This webinar will explore vaginal anatomy, the need for vaginal preparations, and specific parameters to take into consideration when designing vaginal drug preparations.
