Fortunately, bacterial strains of probiotics help build good bacteria for optimal health.
If the pH decreases as a result of fungal overgrowth, commonly known as Candida albicans, it causes yeast infections.
By taking probiotics, you can promote vaginal, digestive and urinary tract health.
Understanding how yeast, utis and bv infections are interrelated helps us better control vaginal health.
They can improve intestinal health and the immune system, and create a healthy bacterial balance in the vagina.
Lactobacillus keeps yeast and other harmful bacteria at a distance, releasing acids and maintaining a low vaginal pH.
The most common causes of imbalance of the vaginal microflora are antibiotics, shower, sex (especially without a condom), poor diet and a weakened immune system.
Lactobacilli are the most common bacteria found in a healthy vagina.
They produce hydrogen peroxide and lactic acid, which maintain a healthy acidic pH (below 4.5).
If the vaginal pH is higher than 4.5, other types of bacteria can grow and colonize, which leads to BV.
Fortunately, some studies have been conducted that, in an additional form, can contribute to a healthier vaginal environment.
Lactobacilli are the main source of lactic acid in the vagina, and vaginal acidity is important to provide full protection against unwanted microbes.
Indeed, the acidity of the vaginal pH increases the predominance of lactic bacteria to support a balanced, more diverse vaginal microbial ecosystem.
Fortunately, scientists have identified some types of bacteria that are particularly effective in protecting the vaginal and intestinal microflora and provide immunity to disorders that can lead to overgrowth of extremely hostile species of yeast and bacteria.
Clinical studies have shown that bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus, especially taken orally daily, are particularly effective in creating and maintaining healthy vaginal microflora.
Studies have shown that certain types of Lactobacillus can inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms such as Gardnerella vaginalis and Candida albicans.
Probiotics are live microorganisms that act as a bacterial barrier in the vagina and affect uropathogens.
Probiotics inhibit vaginal colonization by harmful microorganisms such as Gardnerella vaginalis (G. vaginalis), Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Candida, thus maintaining vaginal health.
Vaginal microflora in patients with vaginal infections such as BV and VVC contains less lactobacilli than healthy populations.
Bacterial vaginosis (bv) and complicated vulvovaginal candidiasis (vvc) are common in postmenopausal women who are caused by imbalances in the vaginal microflora.
Normal, healthy vaginal microflora consists mainly of Lactobacillus (spp.) Species, which act as a bacterial barrier in the vagina and interfere with uropathogens.
During the premenopausal phase, estrogen promotes vaginal colonization by lactobacilli, which metabolize glycogen and produce lactic acid, and maintain vaginal health by reducing vaginal pH.
Reduced estrogen secretion in postmenopausal women leads to reduced bacilli and an increase in vaginal pH, which leads to an increase in vaginal colonization by harmful microorganisms (e.g. Enterobacter, Escherichia coli, Candida and Gardnerella).
The therapeutic use of probiotics has been introduced as a new strategy for the treatment and prevention of post-menopausal vaginal infections.
The following section describes the use of probiotics in the treatment of postmenopausal BV and VVC, describing the mechanisms of lactic bacteria and vaginal flora.
We also describe the effectiveness of probiotics in the treatment and prevention of postmenopausal vaginal infections such as BV and VVC.
In another small study involving 42 healthy women, taking a probiotic was enough to heal the vagina and maintain healthy bacterial levels.
Other studies looked at the effects of using a vaginal probiotic suppository in the treatment of BV.
In a small study, scientists found that 57 percent of women who used the Lactobacillus vaginal suppository were able to cure BV and maintain a healthy balance of vaginal bacteria even after treatment.
You should consult your doctor if the symptoms of BV are accompanied by itching, burning or pain.
The vagina contains a complex colony of organisms that maintain vaginal health and chemical pH.
When the pH of the vagina or bacteria changes, the vagina is more susceptible to infections, including BV.
Utis are usually treated with antibiotics, while yeast infections are treated with antifungal agents.
Probiotic preparations after antimicrobial treatment can help restore bacterial balance in the vagina and urinary tract, killing both good and bad bacteria.
Many infections are caused by a decrease in immunity, and vaginal health is associated with hormones.
As mentioned above, probiotics have shown promise in the treatment of Candida albicans.
Probiotics are also suggested to treat a theoretically related, but highly controversial condition called yeast hypersensitivity syndrome (also known as chronic candidiasis, chronic candidiasis, systemic candidiasis or simply candida).
As some naturopaths have described, yeast hypersensitivity syndrome is a common problem that results from the explosion of a population of normally mild Candida yeast that lives in the vagina and elsewhere in the body, along with some allergic sensitivity to it.
Although this vaginal microbial community can be seen in healthy women with no Bv symptoms, they are more likely to have negative health effects.
Therefore, the vaginal microbial communities of pregnant women that show a persistent increase in estrogen levels appear to be more stable and have a higher relative frequency of lactic bacteria.
