Seach Your Concern:

Many women with BV do not have symptoms. If you do have symptoms, you may notice a thin white or gray vaginal discharge, odor, pain, itching, or burning in the vagina. Some women have a strong fish-like odor, especially after sex. You may also have burning when urinating; itching around the outside of the vagina, or both.
Researchers have had difficulty determining exactly what causes bacterial vaginosis. At present, it seems to be that a combination of multiple bacteria must be present together for the problem to develop. Bacterial vaginosis typically features a reduction in the number of the normal hydrogen peroxide-producing lactobacilli in the vagina.
Chlamydia is a sexually-transmitted disease, while BV is not.

Chlamydia can cause serious, permanent damage to a woman¨¹s reproductive system, making it difficult or impossible for her to get pregnant later on. Chlamydia can also cause a potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that occurs outside the womb).

Chlamydia trachomatis, or simply chlamydia, is a bacterial infection caused by pathogens (germ). Chlamydia trachomatis can infect the genitals of both men and women and other parts of the body such as the throat, rectum, and eyes. Chlamydia is one of the most common STD's, and because more than 50% of chlamydia sufferers have no symptoms at all, chlamydia infection usually goes untreated
A health care provider will look at your vagina for signs of BV and perform laboratory tests on a sample of vaginal fluid to determine if BV is present.
BV can sometimes go away without treatment. But if you have symptoms of BV you should be checked and treated.
BV can cause some serious health risks, including:
- Increasing your chance of getting HIV if you have sex with someone who is infected with HIV
- If you are HIV positive, increasing your chance of passing HIV to your sex partner
- Your baby might be delivered early if you have BV while pregnant
- Increasing your chance of getting other STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea. These bacteria can sometimes cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can make it difficult or impossible for you to have children
Pregnant women can get BV. Pregnant women with BV are more likely to have babies who are born premature (early) or with low birth weight than women who do not have BV while pregnant. Low birth weight means having a baby that weighs less than 5.5 pounds at birth.
Many doctor-prescribed medications such as antibiotics and anti-fungal medications are not very effective for vaginal problems. Additionally, most bacteria and yeasts are resistant to the medications due to excessive use of antibiotics. Studies have proven that probiotics are an effective way of fighting bacterial infections in the vagina.
Side effects from probiotics are generally minimal, usually just excessive gas and bloating. You can simply discontinue using VOFINA™ for a week to let the symptoms go away then restart it at a lower dose.
Yes, you can certainly use a variety of probiotics together. Just make sure that you do not take too many as it may lead to gas or bloating.
Our findings say that you will start to notice changes in as little as 48 hours. The bacteria will start working to clean your privates, eliminating the smell and discharge. At 1 week, your vagina should smell perfectly normal and the discomforts from itching, and irritations will disappear..
We would recommend using probiotics only after your antibiotics and treatments are complete. Probiotics are quite safe to use, but your treatments and medicines may reduce their effectiveness. As always, you should consult your doctor before starting any new treatments.
Simply store the bottle of probiotics in a cool, dry environment. The bacteria will last much longer if they are not exposed to heat and humidity.
This depends largely on your own personal choice. Colostrum is a dairy product it is neither meat or vegetable. Many vegetarians include eggs and dairy as part of their diet and colostrum would be suitable for this diet. Although colostrum is not meat, it is an animal product, if you adopt the vegan diet which excludes all animal products then colostrum will not be suitable. The choice is ultimately yours.
LaFamina™ contains Colostrum, which is a food containing extremely low levels of lactose. So low in fact that most individuals with lactose issues should not experience difficulty with colostrum. Some have even reported that they no longer have lactose intolerance issues. As for people who suffers from milk protein allergy, taking any medication or have a medical condition, please consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Yes,there are clinical studies on Lactobacillus probiotic strains. New in vitro data indicated that five Lactobacillus probiotic strains have been shown to reduce vaginal pathogens,namely Lactobacillus rhamnosus IMC 501,L. paracasei IMC 502,Lactobacillus paracasei subsp. Paracasei 303,Lactobacillus plantarum 319,and Lactobacillus fermentum 404,the first two and their combination in the form of a proprietary blend were found to be the most effective in battling pathogenic Candida strains that can cause problems like vaginosis. A notable study would be a present one published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology (University of Camerino,Italy),where multiple strains were tested for their ability to produce hydrogen peroxide and co-aggregate with pathogens.
