Objective/Purpose: The purpose of this work was the assessment of the clinical efficacy and safety of Bioapigyn® vaginal ointment for pelvic muscle tonus compared to pelvic floor muscle training in alleviating the symptoms of stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence and vulvo-vaginal disorders in child-bearing and menopausal & postmenopausal women. Materials and Methods: The experimental group consisted of 66 women was treated 28 days with Bioapigyn® ointment for pelvic muscle tonus (2.5 mL/day). The control group also consisted of 66  participants was subjected to pelvic floor muscle training during 28 days (five times a day). ICIQ-UI SF score, the residual urine volume, perineometry, the total score of vulvo-vaginal symptoms and vaginal pH were determined before and after the treatment or training. Results: Following the treatment with Bioapigyn® ointment ICIQ-UI-SF score decreased 54.9%, perineometry parameters  increased  between  31.5  and  34.3%,  residual  urine  decreased  for 76.9%  and  vaginal  pH  for 14.2%. All the symptoms of vulvo-vaginal disorders disappeared completely in all participants. The control group showed no changes in vaginal pH or the improvement concerning the vulvo-vaginal complaints. ICIQ- UI-SF score decreased for 4.3%, residual urine volume for 9.1% while perineometry parameters increased between 4.3 and 8.3%. Conclusion/Discussion: Bioapigyn® vaginal ointment for pelvic muscle tonus alleviate the symptoms of incontinence by tightening and firming of the smooth muscles of the pelvic floor thanks to the ingredients with smooth muscles contraction/relaxation and astringent properties. Low pH, high osmolarity, viscosity, greasiness and coating effect of the ointment eradicated vulvo-vaginal complaints.
