Roughly 75% of women will experience at least one episode of vaginal infection during their lifetime. The close proximity of the vagina and the bladder to the rectum means that microbial colonisation of the region is continuous. Studies have shown that as many as 25% of women with bacteria vaginosis may be asymptomatic.
The most common signs and symptoms of yeast and bacterial vaginosis are Yeast Vaginitis: Often caused by Candida albicans, Intense genital itching, redness in external genital area, Thick vaginal discharge (yeasty or odourless smell) Bacterial Vaginosis: Caused by imbalance of bacterial flora, May be accompanied by pain, itching or burning, Grey or watery discharge (fish smell), but do note that some women may not have any symptoms. To date, still not much is known about how women get bacterial vaginosis( BV). While any women can develop BV, women that have never had sexual intercourse are rarely affected.
Certain predisposing factors that are known to upset the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina and increase the risk of infection include: Close proximity of the vagina and bladder to the rectum. Imbalanced micro flora in the vagina, Douching, Pregnancy, Having a new sexual partner or multiple sexual partners, Use of spermicidal creams, Using intrauterine devices such as IUD for contraception. Probiotics during pregnancy have an excellent safely record. In animal studies, both of the strains found in Flora Restore were found to be safe during pregnancy and enhanced the health of both the mother and the newborn.
