Brief Summary:
This study uses MRI to detect the spread of the Miconozole Nitrate OVULE within the vagina. The effect of moderate amounts of physical activity on the spread will be evaluated, and compared to no physical activity.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To compare between exercise and no exercise:
  2. Time needed for the capsule to dissolve;
  3. Quantify and describe product distribution at 20 minute intervals within the first 90 minutes after insertion;
  4. Quantify systemic levels of miconozole nitrate 90 minutes and 24 hours after insertion;
  5. Quantify amount of miconozole nitrate in the vagina 90 minutes and 24 hours after insertion

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Product distribution will be assessed by:
  2. Linear spread from the cervix covered by the product;
  3. Percent of maximal linear spread from the cervix;
  4. Surface area covered by the product;
  5. Percent of maximal surface contact;
  6. Presence bare spots in coating;
  7. Presence of product outside the introitus
