In this case, the vaginal suppositories of Acylact, which include three strains of acidophilic lactobacilli, active against many pathogenic and opportunistic microbes , can help .

Lactobacillus, getting into the vagina, begins to process glycogen with the formation of lactic acid. This contributes to the restoration of a natural acidic environment, not conducive to the development of pathogens (glycogen for nutrition, they also lacks).

At the same time, Doderlein's wand, representatives of a healthy vaginal microflora, which support its normal parameters, begin to multiply actively. All this has a harmful effect on pathogenic microorganisms living in an alkaline environment.

Suppositories Acylact can be used during pregnancy and lactation, tk. Their active substance is lactobacilli.
