I have been taking Fem Dophilus since last summer. I was having a lot of issues with imbalances in my body and even though I was already taking probiotics I did some research and found that there are specific probiotics that help women to keep our genital and urinary tracts in proper balance. I was not sure if it was going to work and it did not work right away but after some time things settled down and I have continued taking it to keep things under control.
Using Probiotics to ward off Bacterial Vaginosis
What is it? Fem Dophilus is a tiny capsule with a white powder that includes powerful probiotics for women. Make sure to purchase these from a refrigerated source. I buy mine online and they are delivered in a cooler. Do not purchase these from a source that will not keep them cold or you are just wasting your money. Dosage is one per day although you can take more as needed. One is usually sufficient to prevent problems from occurring.
Active Ingredients: Total Probiotic Bacteria 5 Billion cfu, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, GR-1, Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14
Why I started taking it: I know that most of us have heard about taking probiotics and I was already taking them to try to get myself back in balance but they did not seem to be helping. I started reading online and found out that Fem Dophilus contains different probiotics specifically those needed for the female genital and urinary tract. I was not having bladder infections yet thankfully but was getting the telltale signs of bacterial vaginosis. My doctor gave me a prescription but shortly after I finished taking it, the symptoms returned.
How much did I take and how fast did it work: I started taking Femdophilus and at first was taking 2 in the morning and 2 at night. Once my symptoms were under control I backed off gradually until I was only taking one a day. I have been taking that dose for at least 6 months and have remained symptoms free.
Side effects: I did not have any side effects from taking Fem Dophilus The capsules are easy to deal with and easy to swallow. They are tiny little things only measuring maybe a little over a half inch long. The only hassle is having to keep them refrigerated.
