Hello,

The Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support would be fine to "try" as your doctor suggested. Probiotics are typically suggested these days with antibiotics in the hopes that they will stave off the drugs' unpleasant side-effects. 

Antibiotics are often described as a sort of "atom bomb" – wiping out all bacteria, good and bad. The more antibiotics and the longer you're on them, the more likely you are to have issues because of them. Yeast are not killed by antibiotics, so they're allowed to grow and flourish in this new bacteria-free environment.

Probiotics, on the other hand, are good beneficial bacteria that help to balance the digestive tract and are often used during and after an antibiotic course. Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support contains 50 billion live cultures of 10 specific strains of probiotic bacteria that have been studied to be helpful for vaginal issues.   

Give it a month with one per day of the probiotic and see if you get any relief.

Good luck!

Hi. I was on 4 different antibiotics in less than 6 weeks, and I developed an itch and burn "south of the equator". My doc said it was likely yeast, tho I had no cheesy discharge like you usually get with yeast. He gave me diflucan, and it worked, but only to a point. The itch returns from time to time, and I squash it with monistat cream, just a dab rids me of it for a few days. But in the end (no pun intended), it comes back. I had extensive bloodwork, a blood culture, and a urinalysis done, and everything came back normal. My doc thinks my system just got messed up from all the different antibiotics and it will "work itself out" in time. I did a saliva test for yeast, and it was positive (yes, I know this test isn't 100% reliable, but at this point, I was grasping at straws).

I saw the Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support and am wondering if it would hurt to try this product? My doc DID say I "could try probiotics if I wanted to", but I am very unfamiliar with such products, and don't wish to cause myself more problems. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!   Smile
