Recurrent vaginitis has a new treatment

Bacterial vaginosis is a non-STI (sexually-transmitted infection) affecting the vagina with discharge and odor.  Women who used a probiotic vaginal suppository had fewer recurrences of bacterial vaginosis.  The suppositories contained Lactobacillus rhamnosus, L acidophilus, and Steptococcus thermophilus.  Women who ate L Acidophilus yogurt had fewer episodes of bacterial vaginosis, but not of vulvovaginal candidiasis.

So, if you are a vaginosis sufferer, consider supplementing at the grocery/health food store.

Hope this helps.
