Just How Many Lactobacilli Do We Need In the Vagina

Control of yeast infections, and control of bacterial infections means that the healthy bacteria of the vagina have to be present. Women need a lot of Lactobacillus to have a healthy vaginal environment, approximately 1 million bacteria per mL of vaginal fluid! The Lactobacillus is present in much greater concentration than other 'good bacteria which are only present in a concentration of about 1000 bacteria per mL of vaginal fluid.We are currently enrolling a study of medication for vaginal infections.
