The period of treatment is seven days. Prior to first application, remove the protection and actuator cap from the bottle and keep it in a safe place, then take the applicator from the wrapping and place it on the bottle.
It is recommended to insert the applicator deep into the vagina while sitting on the toilet or lying in bed. Then, the cap of the applicator must be pressed down ten times one by one. After application, the applicator should be wiped off externally and some preparation should be sprayed out with the applicator facing down.
