Does probiotics help treat BV?

Probiotics are microorganisms (like bacteria or yeast) believed to improve health, and have been linked to treating bacterial vaginosis because they work towards restoring the natural balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina. Probiotics are found in some foods, such as plain yogurt with active cultures. There are also a range of feminine products that deliver probiotics to the body.

Femina Flora is a vaginal probiotic capsule that contains 10 billion CFU’s of Lactobacilli species, such as Lactobacillus Rhamnosus (which works well with the vaginal walls), lactose (food for the Lactobacilli) and vitamin C (linked to lowering the vaginal pH). One capsule of Femina Flora is taken every night for 10 nights. With a reputation for balancing out the vaginal environment, oral probiotics (like FemDophilus or Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support) are also popular choices.
