The drug is a lactobacillus in the form of dried and lyophilized culture. One vaginal capsule contains 341 mg of lactobacilli.
The tool belongs to the group of eubiotics. Lactobacilli are participants in the normal microflora of the vagina, which support the natural acidic environment due to the formation of lactic acid. Candles Laktozhinal with the release of a culture of bacteria from the capsule lead to the normalization of impaired microflora. This strengthens the protective properties of the mucous, and it begins to fight pathogenic bacteria and fungi. The effect is noticeable after a few hours after administration of the capsule.
The drug is effective against the following microorganisms:
The fungi that cause thrush are insensitive to the medicine, but it helps to restore the mucosa after fungal inflammation.
Lactobacillus deficiency is one of the reasons for the development of candidal inflammation of the vagina.

Patients note the ease of use of the capsules and the absence of pain. A positive point is noted and the absence of traces after the dissolved capsule.
Gynecologists indicate that Lactoginal can cause thrush, but it happens in certain conditions. Therefore, doctors recommend not to self-medicate, but first to undergo an examination and establish an exact diagnosis. Only in this case there is an opportunity to prescribe an effective treatment, including Lactoginal.
Alexandra, 24, Syzran: “Severely ill with pneumonia, we had two courses of strong antibiotics. After this, thrush broke out, was disturbed by severe itching and discharge. Antifungal treatment alone was not enough, the doctor prescribed Laktozhinal. I put 2 candles a day, everything went away in a week. ”

Lyophilization is a method of processing lactobacilli that uses very low temperatures. This allows you to preserve their beneficial properties.
Live lactobacilli are released from the shell under the influence of secretions secreted by the body within a few minutes after application. The mucous surface of the vagina is considered a favorable environment for their activity.

- Prevention of candidiasis - to minimize the risk of recurrence and restore healthy microflora after antibiotic topical agents.

Can I take Lactofinal® in parallel with the drug for the treatment of candidiasis?
No, Laktozhinal®, according to the instructions, it is necessary to apply after therapy with antifungal drugs. Studies show that Lactozinal® is an effective prophylactic agent. It contains a unique strain of lactobacilli LCR 35, which destroys the biofilms of pathogenic microorganisms and forms its own protective biofilm on the surface of the vaginal epithelium, thereby preventing the recurrence of vulvovaginal candidiasis.
I often suffer from colds and drink antibiotics. Against this background, thrush often occurs. Will Laktozhinal® help at least to some extent to solve this problem?
Apparently, your main problem is in reducing immunity, and its solution should be approached in a comprehensive manner, including restoring intimate microflora. According to the results of the international multicenter study REVOLACT, the risk of recurrence of vulvovaginal candidiasis when using Lactohalinal at the second stage, after treatment with antimycotics, decreases almost 2 times, because Lactozhinal®, due to its unique composition, not only normalizes the microflora, but also stimulates local immunity. So your case is a direct indication for the use of this drug.

Vulvovaginal candidiasis: what to do?
With vulvovaginal candidiasis, or thrush, at least once in life, almost every woman of reproductive age has come across. Unpleasant symptoms - whitish cheesy discharge, severe itching and burning, pain during intimate contact - provoke significant discomfort, may even affect the intimate relationship of a woman. Moreover, almost half of the fair sex who have had candidiasis end up with relapses of the disease two or more times a year. In 15% of women relapses occur more often 4 times a year.
Causes of vulvovaginal candidiasis
In general, yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida are a natural component of the microflora of a healthy person. In small quantities, they live on the mucous membrane of the pharynx, in the intestine, and also in the vagina. If there are few fungi, they do not harm the body and their presence does not manifest itself.But with certain predisposing factors, the balance of microflora is disturbed and active reproduction of fungal flora begins, which manifests itself as characteristic symptoms of vulvovaginal candidiasis.
The following factors contribute to the development of thrush:
- antibiotic therapy
- diabetes and some other endocrine pathologies,
- reduced immunity
- hormonal contraceptives,
- use of spermicidal agents
- wearing tight, fitting, synthetic underwear,
- trauma to the mucous membranes of the genitals,
- douching antibacterial solutions for a long time,
Thrush is dangerous because of its complications associated with the spread of the pathological process to healthy mucous membranes. The most common consequences of thrush women are the involvement of the urinary system (urethritis, cystitis) in the pathological process.
Against the background of vulvovaginal candidiasis, the incidence of complications during pregnancy increases, the risk of intrauterine infection of the fetus increases (placentitis, chorioamnionitis). Candidiasis of the fetus can lead to its prenatal death and preterm birth.
In addition, it must be remembered that not completed vulvovaginal candidiasis is dangerous because of its transition to the chronic form, which greatly increases the risk of negative consequences and complications.
Thrush: competent treatment
Proper treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis should consist of two stages. At the first stage, antifungal therapy is carried out directly (suppositories, capsules). It aims to destroy the fungal flora, resulting in the removal of painful symptoms. But the mere elimination of pathogens of fungal infection is not enough - with the slightest predisposing factors, the growth of fungi can again resume. Therefore, the second stage must necessarily be the restoration of the natural microflora of mucous genitalia. Beneficial bacteria permanently residing on the surface of the vagina and vulva are a natural protective factor preventing the active reproduction of fungi and the recurrence of candidiasis.
Tribiotic Laktozhinal® reduces the likelihood of recurrence of IHC, restores the natural microflora. The tribiotic effect is achieved due to the presence of lactobacilli themselves, a substrate for their vital activity, as well as synthesized substances with antimicrobial action.
Studies have shown that with the use of the drug Laktozhinal as the second stage of therapy for vulvovaginal candidiasis, the risk of relapse is halved. The LCR35 lactobacteria that are part of the preparation are natural antagonists of yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida — and those and those microorganisms compete for the same receptors on the vaginal epithelium cells. Therefore, lactobacilli naturally suppress the reproduction of fungi, displacing fungi from the surface of the vaginal epithelium and producing antifungal substances - supernatants. This is a reliable protection against fungal flora, as it was developed in the process of evolution and does not bear any harm to the body. Also, studies have confirmed that when using Lactoinal, vaginal pH is normalized already for 2 days. And as you know, a normal level of acidity creates a favorable environment for the natural microflora and negative for pathogenic 2.
Timely, complete therapy of vulvovaginal candidiasis will help minimize the number of relapses and reduce the risk of complications of the disease.

Treatment for thrush with Lactoinalin is quite successful!
I started the treatment and use of Lactozinal tablets after a routine examination by a gynecologist. Treatment of thrush was prescribed complex.
Additionally, with the Lactoginal vaginal tablets, I used Fluconazole tablets and Bifidumbacterin-type probiotics.
After reading the reviews about Laktozhinal and in general about the treatment of thrush, I concluded that the treatment of thrush should start with proper nutrition. What I actually did.
You need to know that after taking a number of medicines, to a greater degree of antibiotics, it is necessary to drink probiotics.
I know for myself that after taking antibiotics, thrush always returns. And why? Yes, because antibiotics killed all the living microflora of the body.
Vaginal tablets Lactoinal, together with complex treatment gives a very positive result. Only one vaginal tablet at night for 7-10 days (depending on the severity of the disease) and the problem is solved positively.
The only minor problem in using Lactozinal is that in the morning, being already upright, the remnants of Lactozinal start to flow out. However, this can be solved with the help of the usual classic daily.
In any case, the instruction on the use of Laktozhinal will prompt the entire sequence of treatment.
I recommend (according to my experience and recall) Lactoginal for treating thrush.
Indications for use
First of all, it is recommended for all pregnant women in preparation for childbirth. When there is no more than a week left until the end of the term, the doctor will surely suggest that you take a course of treatment with Laktozhinal. The feedback from obstetricians suggests that it is such a measure that reduces the number of breaks during labor and also facilitates the recovery period. Very often the drug is prescribed after antibiotic treatment of bacterial vaginosis. Also widely practiced its use in preparation for the planned gynecological operations.
Gestation and lactation period
Most often it is during pregnancy that all chronic diseases are activated, which cause a decrease in immunity and, as a consequence, the activation of pathogenic microorganisms and fungi. In addition, drugs prescribed to combat these ailments contribute to their development. That is why for the entire period of carrying a baby is recommended to stock up with the drug "Laktozhinal". Capsules (reviews emphasize that they are well tolerated in most cases) are very easy to use, and a small course makes it possible to prevent the negative effects of antibiotic therapy. During breastfeeding, the drug can also be used without fear, as it does not penetrate into breast milk. This does not exclude the simultaneous use of other antibacterial and antiviral drugs, since undesirable effects have not been identified.
I hope I forgot about vaginosis forever! Experience of treatment with dalacin (suppositories) and lactozhinal (capsules).
I will share my experience in treating bacvaginosis. I think this topic is relevant for all women.
For a number of reasons, she encountered bacterial vaginosis (she lived in stress for a long time, immunity decreased, etc.). The sensations are extremely unpleasant, not to mention the smell (((I will not tell in detail, but that time I cured him myself, it took just three days, and was glad that everything had been solved. It was not there! Not three months, and again the same story. I didn’t bring it up to the third time, went to the doctor, who immediately told me that cure of bacterial vaginosis is half the battle, but after treatment it is still necessary to restore the normal biocenosis, otherwise there is vaginosis, candidiasis, and damn bald can be got more than once.
My stomach is very sensitive, so I always ask for treatment only local. We stopped on dalacin (I chose candles, it is more convenient for me to inject them than cream) and lactozhinal (capsules). The doctor recommended Laktozhinal, because he not only restores microflora, but also suppresses fungal cultures, which is not superfluous for weakened immunity.
The whole treatment took 10 days: 3 days Dalacin, 7 days Lactojinal. The doctor warned that lactozhinal can be taken longer, 14 days, but it is more convenient - only one capsule for the night (do not forget to soak water before the introduction!). But I wanted to quickly, so I injected in the morning and evening through the capsule. What can I say: yes, partially related substances flow out, but a week with a “daily” is like - this is not a problem at all)))
The treatment went without a hitch, I feel good! Two months have passed, the flight is normal. I hope BV will not visit me again. I will write about the results in a few months. All health!

The dosage before planned gynecological operations, including for pregnant women, is 1 pc. 2 times a day with a course per week or 1 pc per day with a course of 2 weeks.
Since the price of "Laktozhinal" - different (depending on the city and the network of pharmacies), sometimes they write out analogs, the effect of which on the body is similar. You can replace it with "Azilact", "Betadine", "Depantol", "Vagilac" or "Lactonorm". These are antimicrobial and antiparasitic agents. Their method of application is different. Vagilak is available in oral and intravaginal forms. Assign it as an adjuvant in conjunction with other medications.

It treats even chronic manifestations of the disease.
Laktozhinal from thrush: a useful tool or a waste of money
Treatment of thrush is the use of drugs that prevent the reproduction of fungi of the genus Candida. For this, a wide range of effective medicines is presented. In addition to pathogens of the disease, a significant portion of them also destroy healthy microorganisms that form the vaginal microflora. Laktozhinal with thrush is used for its recovery and rehabilitation.
Instructions lacticinal for thrush
Candles Lactozhinal passed all the necessary clinical trials, they are composed of lactobacilli, due to which the restoration and normalization of the natural microflora is achieved. Used drug for intravaginal use. The feedback on lactozhinal is positive and it is connected with high positions of safety of funds, as well as efficiency.
It is worth noting that the active component of the drug is a lyophilized type of lactobacilli, which are famous for the ability to create a natural environment that will protect the vaginal mucosa. According to the patients, even with protracted forms of candidiasis, lactozhinal copes with the disease in one week.
Candles are eubiotic agents that are able to restore the microflora even after prolonged antibiotic therapy. The outer shell of the drug dissolves quickly, so that the reaction of the active ingredients and the physiological environment of the vagina occurs. As a result of this interaction, a decrease in pH occurs, due to which the acidity of the vagina returns to normal.
The use of lactozhinal candles and dosages
Before you insert a candle into the vagina, it must be moistened with water for a quick dissolution. With regard to dosages, the doctor in each individual case selects a treatment regimen that is affected by the severity of the pathological process, the form of the disease, as well as the presence of concomitant pathological processes. Most often one of two options is used:
- the treatment is carried out for one week, while you need to enter one capsule in the morning and evening,
- for fourteen days, one capsule is administered per day. This method is usually used for women who have recently undergone antibiotic therapy.
Depending on the course of the fungal infection, the dosage can be increased or decreased, but the physician can judge this expediency. As for the cases of overdose, they were not recorded. Most likely this is due to the presence in the composition of natural ingredients that simply can not harm the immune system or the overall health of the woman.
Are there any contraindications?
The use of lactozinal has some list of contraindications:
- minor age
- vaginal hypersensitivity
- critical days. During menstruation, the effectiveness of candles will be much less. If there is an urgent need to use lactozhinal during menstruation, then the course of treatment is extended to one month,
- for thrush it is important to follow the instructions of the doctor, not all forms of the drug can be used. Sometimes doctors recommend going through a course of antifungal therapy first, and only then with the help of these suppositories to treat the effects of candidiasis. Otherwise, you can get an unexpected opposite effect when the fungal infection adapts to new conditions and gets rid of it will be much more difficult.
Separately, I want to mention the possibility of drug interactions. The drug does not have in its composition of substances that would not be combined with some kind of medicine. The tool can be safely combined even with antibacterial, antiviral or immunomodulatory drugs.
Laktozhinal with thrush during pregnancy
Immediately I want to note that the drug can be used during pregnancy and there are no restrictions on this matter. Lactation period is also not a contraindication, as the components of the drug do not affect the qualitative composition of breast milk and can not cause harm to the baby.
It should be understood that during pregnancy the woman’s immune system is weakened, therefore chronic pathological processes can be activated, and with them the pathogenic microflora. Therefore, the candles will be most welcome.
Are there any side effects?
In general, the drug itself does not cause undesirable consequences. But It is worth noting that the body of each person is a great mystery and it is not known how he will react to this or that substance. Sometimes patients notice the appearance of allergic reactions:
- genital itching,
- heavy discharge from the vagina.
Mainly side effects appear in violation of the rules clearly stated in the instructions for use. If, however, to strictly follow the requirements, the risks are reduced to a minimum. When the above symptoms appear, it is better to stop using the product and report it to your doctor.
Analogs of Lactoginal
The cost of lactozhinal candles is 550-600 rubles, but may be higher depending on the pharmacy chain.There are analogues whose pricing policy may please. Immediately I would like to note that the decision to replace the funds can be made by a qualified specialist, and not the patient himself.
Common analogues of lactozhinal are such means:
- acylact. This is a strong antimicrobial agent, which consists of different strains of live acidophilic lactobacilli,
- bifidumbacterin. These are rectal and intravaginal suppositories. They include the bacteria bifidum, which multiply rapidly in the body and suppress pathogens,
- vagilak Available in the form of capsules, which are taken orally. It is prescribed as an auxiliary treatment of thrush and other inflammatory diseases,
- ecofemin floravag. The drug has pronounced probiotic properties. It consists of three types of lactobacilli. Besides the fact that the ecfemin phlorawag eliminates the signs of dysbacteriosis, it effectively overcomes the itching and burning of the genitals, vaginal dryness, as well as pain during intercourse,
- lactonorm It is a dietary supplement, not a drug. Despite this, lactonorm treats dysbiosis and restores the microflora,
- vagine-C. Ascorbic acid is a part of the drug. The drug is not only detrimental effect on pathogens, but also restores the acidity of the vagina.
So, lactozhinal with thrush is a good tool to help get rid of the unpleasant effects of vaginal candidiasis. In most cases, it is used after antimycotic therapy.
Taking antibiotics, stress and unhealthy diet - do you think that this only entails problems with the gastrointestinal tract? Wrong, the vaginal microflora is also very sensitive to various kinds of influences. That is why after taking antibiotics, various drugs are prescribed to restore the microflora of both the intestines and the vagina. Especially important this moment may be in preparation for gynecological operations and childbirth. A kind of effective is considered the drug "Laktozhinal". Reviews of doctors say that such a measure avoids many unpleasant consequences and speeds recovery.
What is the drug "Laktozhinal"? Reviews very often mention its safety, and in fact, it is a lyophilized form of lactobacilli, which represent the natural flora of the mouth, intestines and vagina. Along with other forms of lactobacilli, they create a natural environment, protect the mucous membranes of the vagina. Any medication taken orally or administered invaginally violates the delicate balance between the beneficial and pathogenic microflora, and the only drug that allows it to be restored is Lactoginal. Reviews of most women say that the protracted thrush begins to recede after the first week of use.
3 reasons for discharge after candles Lactozinal: yellow, orange and beige
Sometimes medication treatment is accompanied by new, not always pleasant symptoms, so the discharge after Lactoginal is very disturbing for women. It becomes unclear to the patient: it is the norm, an allergic reaction or deterioration from using capsules. In our article you will find the answer to exciting questions.
This drug contains live lactobacilli, therefore, belongs to the group of eubiotics. Prepare it in a special way, drying micro immunity aides at low temperatures. This leaves them alive, but reduces activity. When hit on the mucous membranes are restored. The drug is available in capsules for vaginal use, which allows us to parachute beneficial microorganisms directly to their destination to restore the balance of microflora after treatment.
Laktozhinal is prohibited for use by girls under 18 years of age, patients with candidiasis in acute form. Sometimes there are cases of individual intolerance to the drug.
Side effects can manifest as increased vaginal mucus production, itching, redness, and burning. In pregnancy, Laktozinal is approved for treatment, as it does not harm the process and the fetus.
Manufacturer indicates that sharing with spermicidal agents is excluded. It also warns of possible problems with the dissolution of capsules in patients with reduced vaginal moisture. In this case, the remnants of the funds will come out in chunks, but without the smell and stain effect on linen.
Treatment consists in the introduction of 1-2 times a day before going to bed one capsule, previously soaked in clean water. The procedure is carried out in a horizontal position, and after that it is recommended not to get up at least half an hour. The course is determined individually, the standard 7 or 14 days.
In some cases, prescribed means Laktozhinal:
- Age-related atrophic changes in the vagina,
- As preparation before delivery or cesarean clearance,
- Vaginosis treatment

- Restoration of flora as a result of the rehabilitation of the vagina in the treatment of various diseases.
Attention! Laktozhinal often goes in a complex, they complete the main therapy, therefore to appoint it independently without other means, means, to use capsules uselessly.
Our mucous membranes are a protective barrier on the way to the natural openings of the body. They prevent the ingress of pathogenic microorganisms into the complex of various factors. One of the most important immune elements of the vagina is beneficial lactobacilli and some bifidobacteria that inhabit the entire mucosal surface, thereby leaving no room for infectious agents. In addition, these microorganisms create an acidic environment that is detrimental to invading bacteria. Normally, among the beneficial inhabitants of the mucous membranes, a limited number of conditionally pathogenic microorganisms are also present. If for some reason the balance is disturbed and the latter multiply excessively, then the woman will have abnormal discharge associated with inflammation. These will be various colpitis, vulvovaginitis or candidiasis.
The balance of microflora is disturbed for the following reasons:
- Antibiotic treatment, including vaginal suppositories,
- Decreased immunity in common infectious diseases,
- Genital trauma,
- Poor hygiene
- Hormonal disorders
- Systematic or one-time hypothermia
- The lack of a regular sex life, as well as a quick change of partners,
- Childbirth, abortion, miscarriage and gynecological surgery,
- Severe stress
- Infection at unprotected sexual intercourse with STD pathogens,
- Improper use of hygiene products - tampons and pads,
- Intestinal problems.
Attention! Among this extensive list, the most common causes are antibacterial drugs, genital infections, and poor hygiene.
Symptoms of dysbiosis of the vaginal flora:
- The poor production of lubrication when excited, which leads to pain and discomfort at the time of sex,
- Abundant discharge yellow or white with a bad smell,
- Burning and itching of the genitals
- Unpleasant sensations while walking or when sitting for a long time.
What other options are possible in the norm?
Often, women confuse outgoing undissolved drug residues with vaginal secretions. They appear after the adoption of the vertical position. The effect may be associated with individual characteristics of the vaginal secretion, vaginal dryness, or insufficient period of lying down after the injection of the capsule.
- Lack of unpleasant smell or light veil, as from the drug.
- The color is yellowish or beige, but not bright.
- The consistency is mucous or similar to wet sand.
- Discharges are noted some time after drug administration. When using for the night, more often the remains of means follow in the morning.
Pathological discharge after treatment with Lactoginalm
The appearance of abnormal whiter when using the drug occurs for 2 reasons:
- Ineffective therapy, which led to an increase in the underlying disease. Incorrectly chosen medicines allowed pathology to gain time and develop into full power.
- Individual intolerance to the components of the drug.
Smelling sour milk, abundant white discharge suggests the multiplication of candid. During the period of the acute course of thrush, the Lactoginal capsules are not able to solve the problem on their own, although lactobacilli inhibit the growth of pathogenic fungi and even to some extent are able to destroy it. For effective treatment, a course of special antibacterial agents is needed, which will clear the mucous membranes completely. Only then, to prevent recurrence, Lactoginal capsules are prescribed to colonize the cleaned place. This combination and sequence of actions allows you to more effectively cope with cases of chronic candidiasis, when after a course of antifungal drugs, the cheesy discharge returns again after a few weeks.
For the treatment of candidiasis used candles Pimafucin, Terzhinan and others. Laktozhinal start to insert at the end of the course.
Candida whites are combined with severe itching in the vagina. As a result of sexual contact and urination, the sensation increases.
Attention! Discomfort in thrush can help calm douching with soda solution or decoction of chamomile.
Such secretions accompany erosion of the cervix, endometrial polyps and other pathologies that are not associated with the use of capsules. It is possible that the Lactofinal components irritate the inflamed areas of the mucous membranes, causing microbleeds. In this situation, the use of the drug is stopped with further examination in order to find the causes.
Caution! Any sign of blood in the discharge during pregnancy is a signal to urgent withdrawal of the drug and to see a doctor.
Yellow, orange, green color of discharge indicates the admixture of pus in them, which occurs during acute infectious inflammation of the genital organs. It can be bacterial vaginosis with the smell of missing fish, or an STD like gonorrhea or rotten trichomoniasis.
The lactozinal, or rather, the drugs that make up the lactobacilli, are not capable of destroying the causative agents of venereal diseases. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the cause of pathology and the selection of antibacterial agents. STDs are treated for a long time according to special individual schemes, using oral, injectable and local forms of antibiotics.
Infectious secretions are accompanied by itching, redness, swelling, and burning in the genitals. Sometimes combined with a violation of urination.
Any color with an unpleasant smell
Normally, a vaginal secretion has a light scent that cannot be called nasty or disgusting. The appearance of a repulsive veil is a sign of reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms. For example, chlamydia or mycoplasma may not cause an abundance or discoloration, but the smell will be different.
What to do with abnormal discharge?
If the whites do speak about any problems, then the use must be stopped and soon go to the doctor. The main analysis in this situation is a smear, which is carefully examined to determine the qualitative and quantitative composition of the vaginal microflora. Identified problems will require correction therapy. It may be necessary to use other antibiotics on the basis of data from Bakposev and eubiotic, an analogue of Laktozhinal.
Attention! Detection of chlamydia or ureaplasma will require PCR testing.
Judging by the numerous complaints, it can be said that Laktoginal is a mixed drug. Patients talk about pathological secretions and other unpleasant symptoms as a result of the use of capsules. Although a lot of happy with the means of women. Most agree that the cost of the drug does not belong to the category of budget. Packing with 14 capsules, such a quantity is just enough for a standard course, costs about 700 rubles.
Doctors gynecologists with decent experience assert that a negative reaction of the body to the components of Lactoginal is extremely rare. There are many situations when there are marked pathological discharge with blood, cheesy with thrush, purulent with infectious lesions of the genitals. Blame the drug is not worth it - experts say. It is not a question of this medicinal product, but in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. Laktozhinal does not kill germs on its own, but only inhibits some of them, so if there was no effective antibacterial treatment, then Lactoginal will be useless.
Doctors respect this drug, as it helps prevent re-infection after a course of antimicrobial agents, and is also so safe that it can safely be used at any gestational age. Particularly effective drug to prevent recurrence of thrush, get rid of that only with the help of antibiotics, women can not for years.
Prevention of pathological secretions when taking Laktozhinal
Sometimes the patient is able to prevent the negative effects of the capsules:
- Antibacterial drugs prescribed before eubiotic should be used strictly in accordance with the treatment regimen. You can not decrease the number of tablets per day or the duration of the course, you can replace the medicine yourself with an analogue,
- Avoid sexual contact while taking Lactoginal
- Do not use capsules during menstruation,
- When in doubt in the competence of the doctor, refer to another specialist, the person is responsible for his health,
- Do not abandon diagnostic studies, analyzes. With their help, you can immediately find the right remedies for treatment,
- To observe hygiene. Not only wash the genitals, but also hands before administering the drug,
- Change sanitary pads and tampons no later than 4 hours,
- In case of negative symptoms, immediately go to the gynecologist for an appointment.
Any drug requires the right attitude to each other, and each patient has an individual approach. The reason for the discharge can be the body's reaction, lack of diagnosis, incorrect treatment, as well as the unprofessional approach of the doctor. However, it is worth remembering that often the woman herself leads herself to the disease lifestyle and attitude to their health.
