Good bacteria

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi does anyone know how long to keep taking good bacteria I'm taking femidopholis and acidophilus should I have a break from them? 

For those who have used them vaginally ie femidopholis  how are you doing this please?

    Hi Liz

    are you taking two different sorts ? 

    you can take ( as far as I know) pro biotics every day.. the gut changes daily and we eat different things sometimes what they term as rubbish etc.. antibiotics wreck our good bacteria etc etc ..

     Inside our digestive tract we have somewhere around 100 trillion bacteria happily living in us.  We’re like a giant high-rise building, and the bacteria are our tenants.  About 7 lbs of “you” is really bacteria that live in your intestines, from your mouth to the other end.

    so good pro biotics ' good bacteria ' are quite beneficial...

      Hi Liz

      arr your taking the femidophilus for vaginal health care 

      and acidophilus for gut i think these are..

      well I havent heard or read that they cannot be taken continually, long term, never.. I think if you couldnt it would state it on the jar dosage..

      it if says daily and doesnt mention stop for a while etc then it should be fine

      Thanks jay always nice to get someone else's opinion . Seem to lurch from one symptom to another but then we would all know about that!! Such a wonderful period in our lives I'd rather go back to puberty much easier.

      Hoping it gets better I've had 10 years of it so far and it seems to get worse if I'm honest. But much prefer the natural way it's less harmful on your body. I too rattle vitamin c cranberry vitamin e probiotics coconut almost like a buffet snack!!!

      Hi Liz

      we pretty similar then.. 9-10 years for me.. natural peri.. I am 50 now

      havent had period for a year.. ( will be a year on 2 Sept) I had a Gyno check on monday, and the Gyno Doctor guy was amazing...  he showed me my ovaries etc via 3D ultra sound ... said they were menopause reached.. 

      non functioning... no follicles .... it was so interesting, he measured them and uterine wall thickness ... explained all of it .. checked breasts via 3D imaging.

      smears, colposcope to check internal vaginal wall and cells on cervix,  the lot... never felt any discomfort, none, he was the nicest most professional Gyno ever, spent 1.5 hours with me doing all the ultra sounds, checks and talked through everything, my well being, menopause, how I am coping ... even have photos of it all... i was blown away by the technology.. came out speechless, hapoy and amazed.. just shows Gyno best choice as GP's havent a clue in my experience.. give up on GP's hence having this thorough well woman check with a Gynaecologist.. 

      I live in Southern Spain...

      Hi jay lucky you living in Southern Spain do you speak Spanish? Your gyno sounds fab I didn't know they did all that!! The one I saw was horrible clinical and cold. I have found out I have short tight muscles in the vagina wall which need to be released more joy to be experienced. Apparently you have to relax your internal bits very very hard but pain is in the mind and it comes out in the weakest bit. Well I know where mine is adios señora?

      Hola señora 

      Como estas  ?

      It's a form of wait for it vulvadinya unexplained pain !!! I won't get incontinence because my muscles are good but they are too tight which causes muscle spasm . Could be caused from hysterectomy scars and shrinking bits due to menopause and loads of stress doesent help.

      Adios

      Hola jay stress is not good and it's a funny thing sometimes when you are most stressed you don't feel stressed . Tried replens it's ok then yes that's also ok using vitamin e vaginal suppositories they are good also on amazon. I think I've spent more money on amazon than anywhere else . Men don't know what pain and discomfort is..... Girls they get the lot. Hope you are warmer in Spain than over here it's cold and it's August !!!! Buenas noches
