Candles (capsules) "Laktozhinal": features of application for restoration of flora

Infringement of flora of a vagina - the companion of inflammatory process. Any antibacterial drug acts not selectively on the pathogen, but inhibits the growth of beneficial microorganisms. Therefore, after the course of treatment, it is important to "populate" free places with lactobacilli in a timely manner, which will continue to maintain health. The instruction for the use of "Laktozhinalya" asserts that the drug is completely safe and effective. Is it so?

The content of the article

The drug is available in the form of capsules, and the concept of "Laktozhinal" suppositories is popular only because many people consider any form of the drug as suppositories, if the implication is to insert into the vagina.

Composition and principle of action

Sterility of the vagina immediately leads to the emergence of bacterial vaginosis or vaginitis. Normally, in order to maintain a healthy balance on the mucosa, there must be Dederlein sticks, they are also lactobacilli. Creating an acidic environment, they inhibit the growth and reproduction of pathogens. Each capsule "Laktozhinal" in its composition contains 341 mg of microorganisms - lactic acid bacteria, which in terms of quantity - 1 * 10 8 . And lactobacilli are in lyophilized state.

This means that they have undergone a special kind of drying with the action of extremely low temperatures. After lyophilization, they retain their properties when they fall into favorable conditions of life (in particular, on the mucous membranes of the vagina), but have a reduced rate of all biological reactions. The lactobacillus contributes to the following in the vagina.

  • . Create an acidic environment . This leads to the activation of their own lactobacilli. Their intensive reproduction leads to the displacement of conditioned pathogens (for example, E. coli, epidermal streptococcus, protea) and a decrease in the probability of a relapse of inflammation not only in the vagina, but also in the urinary system (for example, in chronic cystitis).
  • . Prevent the growth of candidiasis . Lactobacilli enter into antagonistic relations with candida fungi, which leads to a decrease in the intensity of growth of the latter. They also excrete special antifungal (protio-fungal) substances that destroy Candida. Therefore, the vaginal capsules "Laktozhinal" are widely used to prevent the recurrence of thrush after the main course of treatment.
  • . Increase local immunity . The acidic environment in the vagina provides protection from external pathogens. Infection is delayed here, not moving further into the cervical canal and the uterine cavity.

Reviews: "The improvement has already felt in five days"

Capsules contain powder. When used, the capsule flows in the morning from the vagina in the form of water. It is advisable to use a gasket. When taking the drug, there was a feeling of comfort. There were no exacerbations of thrush. Pathogenic discharge after treatment with this drug has decreased and almost disappeared. By the general smear on the flora handed over after a 2-month treatment, appointed by the doctor, the smear has entered my normal range. Lactoflora recovered. The white blood cells were normal. poupees11,

This is a rather intimate problem only for women. After childbirth, I ran into bacterial vaginosis. I put the diagnosis to myself and for several months I was at the dacha sampling miramistin. chlorhexidine, but this was not particularly useful, although I honestly douched each day several times. The result is zero. When she returned to the city the problem remained rather acute, and the doctor was not immediately able to get there. The doctor confirmed my diagnosis and after the tests I prescribed this drug and Vagilak. 1 box was enough. These are quite small capsules for vaginal application. Easily introduced, then the shell came out. So it coincided that the cycle was just restored and after the first monsters I began to be treated. After the reception, everything became smaller, but it did not disappear. Completely everything (the smell, excretion) is a thing of the past after the second monsters. I think the drug helped, but most importantly, still probably, the restoration of immunity is suppressed during pregnancy. So I regard it as "crutches for immunity". At least it is completely safe. Vera,

Hello, I used this drug as prescribed by a doctor. There were no side effects, it helped perfectly, after several used analogs, which did not give a result. Raski,

I never wrote reviews. But I use strangers. And here, for the first time, I can not help writing, because I did not feel such terrible pain and irritation of mucous membranes yet from one drug. and therefore I want to warn others that the possible side effects are incommensurable with the treatment itself. Although I took the drug after terzhinana. It is better to take lactobacillus through the interior than through such a vulnerable place. The drug is very expensive, so I thought it was good ... Svetlana,

Restoration of microflora after antibiotics - the French eubiotic Laktozhinal. It was treated with bacterial vaginosis with antibiotics - like successfully, and the tests are normal, and the dryness and itching did not go away even after the course was completed. Although they became smaller. The gynecologist said that this is normal, because the antibiotic destroyed all microflora in the vagina: both pathogenic and healthy. It is necessary to restore. Also has advised "Laktozhinal". It's not cheap, but it's already done a lot of research, so there's a certainty that it works. And yet he has a prophylaxis of thrush in the indications that after vaginosis is also important. Has bought or purchased. It is made in France, for that and extra charge, probably. There are 14 transparent capsules with cream filling in the bottle. Capsules are small, comfortable. The instructions say that, in addition to excipients, the capsule consists of a huge amount (1x108 cfu) of L. casei rhamnosus Doderleini bacteria. These bacteria "improve local metabolic processes and contribute to the restoration of natural local immunity." It is not surprising that the treatment is not fast - not synthetic by immunity, but by living bacteria, by the bygone-polegonku. I was treated for 14 days, put one capsule at night. Improvement has already felt in five days. A good remedy, carefully and naturally restores our microflora. Khazova Marina Sergeevna,
