Genitourinary infections affect more than 1 billion women worldwide every year, and are the most common reason a women will see a gynecologist. These infections can be bacterial in nature (bacterial vaginosis) or fungal in nature (vulvovaginal candidiasis). The types of bacteria in the vaginal canal will fluctuate based on a variety of factors, including hormone levels, diet, sexual contact, and douching; however, the basic composition is Lactobacilli-dominant in healthy females. It is the depletion of these healthy organisms that can leave a woman prone to urinary and vaginal infections. There are probiotic bacteria that can help in modulating the immune system and displacing pathogens that can cause these infections. A healthy vaginal canal should be colonized by Lactobacilli as the dominant bacterial species. Lactobacilli produce H2O2, which helps maintain a vaginal pH close to 4.0, which is essential for vaginal health. Maintenance of a vaginal pH around 4.0 decreases a woman’s risk of developing vaginosis.
Adult women: Use 1 ovule per day. Insert one ovule intravaginally daily before bed for 10 days or as directed by your health-care practitioner. If you are using vaginally inserted antibiotics, use this product at least 2-3 hours before or after taking them.
Each vaginal ovule contains:
|Lactobacillus rhamnosus HA-111||1 billion CFU|
|Lactobacillus fermentum HA-179||1 billion CFU|
|Lactobacillus reuteri HA-188||0.5 billion CFU|
