Can probiotics safely prevent recurrent vaginitis?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Using vaginal suppositories or eating yogurt with Lactobacillus may reduce recurrences of bacterial vaginosis (BV) (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, randomized controlled trials [RCTs] with conflicting results). Neither suppositories nor yogurt containing Lactobacillus are likely to prevent recurrences of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) (SOR: B, RCTs with conflicting results). Probiotic suppositories and yogurt don't appear to have significant adverse effects (SOR: A, RCTs).
