MEDIA, Pa., June 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synova Healthcare, Inc., a subsidiary of Synova Healthcare Group, Inc. , has recently expanded the distribution of Fem-V(TM) through Longs Drugs. Longs Drugs is one of the most recognized retail drug store chains on the West Coast. Longs, a California based company operates more than 500 stores in California, Hawaii, Washington, Nevada, Colorado and Oregon.
Millions of women buy over-the-counter (OTC) vaginal infection treatments, often without knowing the root cause of their vaginal infections. Although some infections can be treated with OTC products successfully, others cannot, and require a prescription from their health care provider. Fem-V, with its advanced polymer technology, can assist a woman in assessing whether she should seek professional care for her vaginal infection symptoms.
Fem-V is a non-invasive, at-home test with a diagnostic strip embedded in a pantiliner. It is highly accurate with 91% sensitivity and provides results that are easy to interpret. Fem-V provides women with a private and comfortable way to assess their vaginal infection symptoms.
Stephen E. King, Chairman and CEO of Synova Healthcare Group, Inc. said, "We are extremely pleased to announce Fem-V's distribution through Longs. Longs represents another very important point of retail distribution for Fem-V and increases access to this product for our customers. We believe Fem-V can play an important role for the millions of women who suffer from vaginal infections annually."
The Company also believes that many of the consumers, who will use Fem-V, represent the same target audience for The Today(R) Sponge. Synova Healthcare acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to the Today Sponge earlier this year, and will soon re-launch this former #1 OTC female contraceptive to consumers nationwide. The Company intends to aggressively co-promote and cross merchandise these two strategically aligned healthcare products in the months ahead.
