    Kicked a chronic yeast infection!, March 28, 2008
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Instead of trying to murder your yeast with antifungals, why not just send it packing with probiotics? I had a really stubborn infection for almost four months. I was tested for everything–diabetes, low iron, thyroid problems, etc. But I am healthy and there was no obvious medical reason for my infection; my doctor just kept asking if I was stressed out? She wanted to prescribe 7 months of Gynazole-1. The list of things I’d already tried was very, very long. From OTC yeast creams to natural supplements to prescription creams and Diflucan, nothing had driven the yeast into submission. I had already tried Culturelle, which is supposedly one of the best probiotics. Don’t get me wrong, Culturelle is great—for your gut. I’ve since learned that the reason it wasn’t helpful in my situation, was because acidophilus GG doesn’t colonize the vaginal/urinary tract, only the intestines. I wish I had heard about Femdophilus in the first place. It really does have the proper probiotic strains to rebalance vaginal flora. I have been taking it both orally and inserting it vaginally–maybe that’s TMI, but it just made sense to me to put the bacteria where it belongs instead of swallowing it and waiting for it to eventually find its way there. The relief was almost immediate, and after several days, things just kept getting better and better. I plan on staying on this one long term. I was browsing the Jarrow website, and saw in the FAQ’s that for yeast they also recommend another probiotic called Saccharomyces boulardii. It is a beneficial yeast that will colonize your gut and make it harder for candida yeast to thrive. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try, since it’s inexpensive and the bottle contains a 90 day supply. Plus, like other probiotics, studies have shown that it boosts your immunity. I can’t wait to give it a try. Incidentally, if there is a silver lining in all of this, it’s that taking all kinds of probiotics, even the ones that didn’t help my yeast infection, really does seem to have helped my immunity; I haven’t been sick, even when my children were. Forget trying wacky diets or boiling your underwear to get rid of yeast!

    Unbelievable!, August 5, 2009
    By 
    Sarah (WI) –

    I have suffered recurrent vaginal candida infections since the birth of my first child eight years ago. I have used prescription medications and boric acid suppositories to control this with limited success – the infections would always come back. I think there is a hormonal connection because I never had any issues while pregnant, only after. Now that I am done having children I needed to find something that would work to rid me of this constant problem. It actually consumed all of my energy trying to figure out how to prevent the yeast infections. I even tried limiting sugar and removing alcohol from my diet (very hard to do) and that didn’t really do much either. Anyway, I have researched and researched medical journals and the internet and began looking into probiotics after reading a medical article on how they can eliminate female issues (bacterial vaginosis, UTI’s, candida infections). I read about this probiotic and went to their website to further inquire. It has been a miracle. I have been taking it for three weeks (two capsules/day) and have not had one infection! Unbelievable. I am in awe and will continue to use over the long term. This is product really does what it says. I am so thankful for those who developed it and are working to help those who suffer from these female problems, as they have been plaguing women for centuries.

    NOT AN ALL OUT CURE FOR BV, BUT FOLIC ACID IS, August 29, 2010
    By 
    Kitara (Plano, TX USA) –

    This review is from: Jarrow Formulas Fem-Dophilus, 60 Capsules (Health and Beauty)

    If you are getting this for BV, this will lessen it, but not cure it completely. BV is the most embarrassing, frustrating and depressing thing to happen to a woman, but the steps below should eliminate it completely.

    1. Take 800mg Folic Acid 1x a day. (This should have an immediate effect–within 24-48 hours.
    2. If above doesn’t completely eliminate it, add 2 Fem-Dophilus capsules 2x a day to the routine. (It needs to be refrigerated so buy at Amazon (best price for 60 capsules) during Spring/Fall/Winger, and during summer, get it at Sprouts or other natural grocery store in their vitamin refrigerated area.)
    3. If the combination above doesn’t eliminate it completely, add to the routine, the following–douche with Hydrogen/Peroxide and water (2 parts to 1 part) 1x a week.

    Good luck. Hope this works for you as it did for me!
