Many people wonder whether to use Rephresh or Replens for their sex selection attempt. I read on another board that Replens is the way to go since its ph is lower. This worried me, since I had already conceived using Rephresh! So, I e-mailed the makers of Rephresh to find out it's ph. I didn't hear back. So, I called their company directly and here's what I learned today ...
Replens and Rephresh are made by the same company. They are not, however, the same thing. Replens is for vaginal dryness and Rephresh alters the ph of your vaginal environment.
When I asked about the ph of both, the rep. had to do some research and call me back. I've seen charts that show the ph of Replens at 2.79. The company said Replens has a ph buffer of 4 to 5. They said Rephresh has a lower ph of about 3.5. They said they are updating their website.
They also said douching is not recommended in conjunction with Rephresh because it can wash some of it away (where normally the Rephresh would stay adhered for 3 days/72 hours). I do believe that acidic douches have a lower ph than both of these (for what it's worth). So, there it is ... straight from the horses mouth.
