Personalized Solutions for Women's Health
Women face unique health challenges throughout a lifetime. Maida Pharmacy Compounding and Wellness offers a variety of compounded medications to address these challenges. Below you’ll find several scenarios where our compounded medications are excellent treatment options.
Compounded progesterone suppositories can be prescribed to help maintain a pregnancy. They seem to be most useful for women with a history of miscarriages. However, given the crucial role progesterone plays in pregnancy maintenance the use of progesterone suppositories may be extended to all women at high risk for a miscarriage.
Breastfeeding and Other Postpartum Complications
Breastfeeding complications include nipple soreness, pain, and infection. All Purpose Nipple Ointments (APNOs) are commonly prescribed to new mothers to address these complications. APNOs incorporate a combination of anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and low potency steroids into a soothing ointment base. Other compounded formulations following pregnancy include medications for postpartum depression, stretch marks, as well as newborn atopic dermatitis or eczema.
Chronic Vaginal Infections
Vaginal infections can be complex to manage as they can be of mixed origin (bacterial and fungal) and reoccurring. Our compounded formulations address the multifaceted and chronic nature of vaginal infections, while also treating acute symptoms.
Vaginal Atrophy- Hormonal & Non-Hormonal Treatments
Vaginal atrophy is experienced by many women, especially during the years following menopause. Symptoms of vaginal atrophy include dryness, irritation, itching, as well as pain during intercourse, and while urinating. A variety of vaginal estrogen products are commonly compounded to treat these symptoms. For patients for whom estrogen is not recommended or tolerated, we compound a variety of non-hormonal medications such as a coconut oil in hyaluronic acid vaginal cream.
