You’re not REALLY going to send your patient into the intimidating world of adult boutiques…are you? These places have come a long way but can still be pretty daunting to most. Then there’s the online world. There’s so much to choose from! Innovations in materials and technology happen rapidly and it’s hard to stay on top of it. We know how much you care about your patients and want to provide them the best. That’s why we’ve come up with some guidelines on what sexual health products to recommend. Materials, ingredients, sources and intentions all matter with products we use so intimately. Here is what we’ve discovered throughout our years of experience.
Some Common Questions
How Do You Find the Best Sexual Health Products?
The best sexual health products will come from reputable sources and brands. Referring your patients to Amazon, eBay, or any other third party seller could be dangerous for a number of reasons. Bad quality, dangerous materials, and overall unsatisfactory experience are a few. It is important to have a few online stores that you trust to refer to. These stores will carry high quality products, brands with integrity, and direct information on materials, ingredients, and manufacturers.
What Are The Best Materials Out There?
The best materials to look for will be ones that are body-safe and non-porous, so they don’t harbor bacteria. For sexual health products, options include 100% medical grade silicone, high-quality ABS Plastic, acrylic, borosilicate glass, and stainless steel. For example, check out the LELO Gigi 2, which is 100% silicone and ABS Plastic. When it comes to personal lubricants or serums, we recommend high-quality natural or organic products that don’t include irritants such as alcohol or overwhelming perfumes. These can cause UTI’s, yeast infections, and general skin or tissue irritation. A good example of a neutral, organic lubricant that our doctors love is Sliquid Organics Natural Lubricant.
Who Is Making the Best Intimate Moisturizers and Lubricants?
Lucky for physicians, there are multiple brands that make high-quality, safe, and satisfying products to meet patient needs. Some of our favorite brands that we stand by at MedAmour include Sliquid, Intimate Earth, Good Clean Love, Pjur Med (great for sensitive skin), and Bella Aqua D’Amore CBD Infused lubricant (great for relaxing pelvic floor muscles and stimulating blood flow).
How Can I Tell a Good Product From a Bad One?
As a patient, going into the world of sexual health products alone can be very daunting considering all the options there are. Quality can be very hard to distinguish. A good product will be sold from a reputable supplier/store, will list the materials/ingredients it is made out of, and will directly tell you where it was manufactured. With high quality products, you will see that the price points are higher, and will usually include benefits such as a warranty. We recommend straying from products that may have a very low price point, mysterious origin, or a supplier that doesn’t have an official standing. When partnered up with a company such as MedAmour, it is ensured that patients will be receiving top line products to cater to their healthcare needs.
