Breakthrough that speeds treatment of vaginal infections
Probiotics--friendly bacteria that thrive in the body--are known to prevent or even cure yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. Now there's an OTC supplement containing the two Lactobacillus strains documented to promote vaginal health. The probiotic pill Fem-Dophilus has erased up to 90% of vaginal bacterial infections and significantly reduced yeast growth in trials by coating the lining of vaginal tissues and producing acids that keep pathogens from gaining a foothold. When women take antibiotics, Fem-Dophilus doubles the drugs' effectiveness by recolonizing the vagina with healthy flora.

I hav found the best prices online for this product at Amazon.. when on special, you can get 60 caps for about $20.. I try to stock up because this is the only thing that helps with BV.. I don't take this orally, what is most effective is inserting 1 or 2 caps vaginally and viola'.. no BV.. but I hav to keep doing it daily or it comes back.. hence the stocking up on this. Read your ingredients! This is the only combo you will find that works vaginally, if that's what you are searching for. This product WORKS!

Asked on: July 8, 2013 Question: I was on zpak ans taking femdophilus for 3 weeks or so ans I just took a dose of diflucan because I always get yeast infections with antibiotic use. I wouldn't think that there would be any problem in taking women's probiotic and diflucan but just wanted to make sure. I should take 2nd dose of diflucan in 36hrs. Please confirm ok to still take together or do I Ned to stop femdophilus for few days?
