    Default Probiotics May Not Do Much For Vaginal Health

    • Vaginal health, including vaginal flora, is essential to well-being and fertility.
    • The success rate of fertility treatments, such as IVF, can be affected by many factors including the composition of the vaginal microbiome prior to treatment.
    • Recent findings suggest that probiotics administered vaginally for 10 days before fertility treatment may not improve unfavorable vaginal microbiomes.

    The importance of probiotics and maintaining the “good” bacteria in the body is essential in many areas of health. The microorganisms that inhabit the vagina can impact pregnancy and other health outcomes.

    This is the first I've heard that probiotics have any effect on vaginal flora, so it surprises me that anyone even tried… And then reported a failure. Perhaps the point is to discourage others from attempting the same experiment?

    How about the use of UNsweetened, organic cranberry juice, (like Lakewood). https://healthfully.com/cranberry-ju...s-6687690.html

    I think that is usually recommended for UTI's, rather than overall vaginal health. That, as far as I know, is more of a bladder problem.

    Good news, the bladder is considered part of the urinary tract. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...s/syc-20353447
