Want To Know More About Zidoval?

Good hygiene must be practised while using Zidoval gel. Wash your hands before opening the tube or touching the applicator (set of applicators come along with the gel). To open the tube, simply unscrew and use the pointed tip of the cap to pierce in the metal seal. To fill in an applicator, screw its open end to the end of the open tube. Squeeze the tube gently and slowly from the bottom to fill in the 5g dose of Zidoval gel. The plunger will move as the applicator fills. Released the applicator from the tube and replace the cap on the tube. 

Hold the filled applicator from its barrel. Gently and slowly insert the applicator to the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Release the gel into your vagina by slowly pushing the plunger down to the applicator. Continue pressing down until the plunger stops to ensure that you have released the correct amount of gel. Remove the applicator from your vagina and throw it immediately to the waste bin. 

Repeat the procedure for 5 consecutive days or as prescribed by your doctor. Use fresh applicator every time you apply. It is advisable to apply the gel at night or bedtime while laying at your back with your knees up for a more comfortable position. Complete the necessary days or times you should apply the gel.

If you missed a night Zidoval gel application, apply the right dosage as soon as you remember it in the morning then continue to take the next dosage in the evening even if you have to apply 2 times on the same day. If after the prescribed days of using the gel you still don’t feel better, do not use more Zidoval gel than you should as this may result in an increased risk of side effects. It is better to consult your doctor again.
