Best of luck to you. Laugh

Check out some of our yeast articles and our yeast diet blog for more info.

900 BILLION?! Amazing. My cramping only lasted a few hours yesterday, and it was very tolerable, not even as bad as you get if you have a normal case of "Montezuma's Revenge". I do plan to stick with it, as you suggested. And I don't really care if they "go quietly", as long as they GO!!!  Wink

Thanks for your help.

Yes, as you've read, sometimes people can experience some digestive symptoms when they start a probiotic. Yeast "die-off" can occur when a large amount of beneficial bacteria is consumed daily. This is because the good bacteria are crowding out the yeast and secreting short chain fatty acids which antagonize them. The yeast sometimes don't go quietly.

The Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support is also very high potency, so there's 2 factors - your first time taking it AND its higher potency. I would give it a few days. Continue to take one capsule per day and see if these symptoms taper off; I'm guessing they will.

Getting too much good bacteria is not usually an issue. Human studies have shown that adults can take upwards of 900 Billion cultures per day with no adverse effects. If you've taken more probiotics than you need, you'll just eliminate more. Typically people will experience softer stool if they've reached their threshold for probiotic consumption. However, this is not usually an issue.

I hope that helps.

Hi again! I started taking the Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support yesterday, as I've recently had a yeast problem from antibiotics. I've only taken two capsules, one yesterday, and one today, and this afternoon, I noticed I have some cramping and I am belching more than usual. This cramping isn't horrid, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst, I'd say it's a 2. I did read in the FAQ's that sometimes cramping can occur when starting probiotics. Should I just give it a few days, and take one capsule per day, or should I go to taking a capsule every other day? Maybe I'm nuts, but I think this product is already helping my yeast problem, and I don't want to cut the dosage unless it's really necessary. By the way, if we get an excess of "good bacteria", what happens? Does it just get eliminated as waste?
