Review: Physioflor L. crispatus probiotic for vaginal odour, irritation and itch

physioflor-7-day-treatment-packet

Physioflor is a vaginal probiotic product containing Lactobacillus crispatus, coming in two forms – slow-release and one-a-day.
L. crispatus is one of your best vaginal warriors, and this probiotic bacteria is rare to find in pessaries or oral doses.
L. crispatus is one of the most commonly found vaginal microbes.

You can only buy this product online from the UK/Europe.

Physioflor is designed to rebalance vaginal bacteria, but not to treat any condition. We think it’s a good adjunct to the Killing BV bacterial vaginosis treatment protocol, and could be used for general vaginal odour and improving microflora balances.

Beyond this, we’re all so individual in our vaginal microflora, it’s impossible to say what this product could solve, help, or would not work for – our view is that it’s definitely worth a try. We suggest using other treatments at the same time, since Physioflor may not be quite enough by itself to remove biofilms or put up enough of a fight against pathogenic microbes.

Additionally, you may need a much higher dose than the package recommends so check with your healthcare provider if necessary.
