Health Tips

Are you familiar with your neighbors? Maybe not by name, but you can definitely recognize it by sight, right? Knowing those with whom you live on the same landing is a good form.

Do we know those who keep our women’s health?! Not always. And this is not even a good tone, and sometimes a vital necessity.

Let’s have a short educational program on the topic of vaginal microflora. What microorganisms live there? Which are considered beneficial and which are harmful, and what happens when the balance is disturbed.

The microflora of the vagina of a healthy woman is extremely dynamic. But the vast majority – for lactobacilli. It is they who, releasing lactic acid and maintaining the acidic pH of the vaginal environment, stand guard, regulate the composition and number of opportunistic flora, preventing it from actively growing and multiplying.

Also, bifidobacteria are found in some parts of the vagina.

Representatives of opportunistic flora account for approximately 2-5%. These are organisms that can be present in minimal amounts in the vagina and not cause disease.

They begin to cause trouble when the conditions for their active growth become favorable: an increase in the alkaline reaction of the environment, a decrease in the production of lactobacilli, and so on.

Conditionally pathogenic (or transient) flora include some types of staphylococci, corynebacteria, gardnerella, micrococci, bacteroids, mycoplasma, ureaplasma.

So, we got to know the actors. Now let’s try to find out the rules of their cohabitation, so to speak, the housing code.

Normally, the microflora of the vagina depends on many factors and changes quite often.

Its composition varies even within one menstrual cycle. So, for example, immediately after menstruation, the environment is more alkaline, the number of lactobacilli is slightly lower, and the risk of infection is higher.

Gradually, the number of lactobacilli grows, reaches its maximum, and the environment again becomes acidic.

When, for some reason, the acidity of the environment changes, the number of opportunistic flora grows, the proportions change, dysbacteriosis vagina. It can occur as an independent disease, or it can become a trigger, exacerbating chronic infections of the pelvic organs or causing new inflammation.

There are many reasons for the occurrence of dysbiosis, an imbalance in the number of microorganisms.

They are often associated with:

hormonal disorders in general or long-term use of hormonal contraceptives,

severe stress,

associated diseases of the gastrointestinal tractintestinal dysbacteriosis,

past infectious diseases, including SARS,

surgical interventions,

the use of antibiotics.

Let’s focus on the last two points. The physiological pH of the vagina is 3.8-4.5. It is in such an environment that lactobacilli successfully multiply and suppress the growth of pathogenic flora, maintaining balance.

Antibiotics used to treat vaginal infections eliminate not only pathogens, but also negatively affect the normal flora – the pH changes, the reaction becomes alkaline.

Under such circumstances, their own lactobacilli cannot function, and also do not survive. And since there is no protection, the pathogenic flora begins to develop again, and repeated complaints about discharge, smell, and burning in a woman appear quite quickly.

That is why the best way to treat and prevent dysbacteriosis are drugs that affect the acidity of the environment.

Therefore, if you are prescribed antibiotics for the treatment of colpitis or other diseases of the pelvic organs, then after the end of the course, you must use the drug Vaginorm-S.

Vaginorm-S contains ascorbic acid of a special form, which acidifies the vaginal environment to physiological values.

The population of its lactobacilli is growing rapidly and prevents the reproduction of pathogenic flora, which again becomes conditional and quietly exists in the vagina in the amount of 2-3%, which is the norm.

The course is designed for only 6 days of use. Tablets are inserted into the vagina at bedtime, and you can not take a break during menstruation.

It is necessary to prevent and treat dysbacteriosis, because, in addition to the usual discomfort, it can provoke serious diseases. Chronic inflammation with frequent relapses often leads to very unpleasant diagnoses, such as cervical cancer.

The advantage of the drug Vaginorm-S is that it is recommended and successfully prescribed to women in a special position:

allowed to use during pregnancy, which, alas, is very often accompanied by bacterial vaginosis, and a woman is limited in the choice of medicines

its use is allowed during lactation – also a difficult stage for the female body. On the quality of breast milk Vaginorm-S does not affect

recommended for use after medical, surgical procedures, after abortion

the drug can be prescribed to very young girls, from the time they started menstruating. This is also a special category of patients whose body is experiencing colossal hormonal changes and the associated stress.

Vaginorm-S It is also used by ladies of elegant age. Indeed, after 40-50 years, the pH of the vagina becomes more alkaline, which means that the mucous membrane is more vulnerable. To this is added its gradual natural atrophy.

So it’s very important to know who lives next door to us, and create good conditions for friendly lactobacilli to live – an acidic environment in the vagina!

Be healthy! Live in peace and balance!
