BV and probiotics
I've read the BV info...wow, extensive. I've been reading the pro-biotic foods posts too.

If L. acidophilus, L. crispatus, and L. delbrueckii subspecies...are best to recolonize vaginal bacteria....Where do I find them? (foods, supplements?
) Acidophilus seems easy, but I don't know about the other two.


I have only had one menstrual cycle in the past year...so I'm basically in menopause at 47. (I know this affects BV)

Could I be getting "re-infected" by my man (changing Ph due to semen)?

My smell is not "fish-y" per se, but not "neutral" either.

Any help is appreciated!

The vaginal bacteria actually come from the colon. As the flora get in the skin in the perianal area the bacteria migrate in to the vaginal cavity. This is why consuming cultured foods help. I like kefirs, which are cultured foods containing large numbers and a wide variety of probiotic bacteria strains.

The alkalinity of semen can alter vaginal pH changing the microbial makeup.

The best way to tell if there is an infection is to get a culture.
