Exhaustive efforts have been made toward the administration of drugs, via alternative routes, that are poorly absorbed after the oral administration. However, successful delivery of drugs through the vagina remains a challenge, primarily due to the poor absorption across the vaginal epithelium. Modern technology has yielded vaginal drug-delivery systems that provide optimized pharmacokinetic profiles. These characteristics make the vagina an excellent route for drug administration. The vagina allows women to self-administer medication continuously for weeks or months at a time with a single application. The purpose of this communication is to provide the reader with a summary of advances made in the field of vaginal drug delivery.
