treatment for bacterial vaginosis Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Treatment Vaginal Gel
Helps the vaginal flora to help itself
Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Treatment Vaginal Gel is available for the supportive treatment and prevention of bacterial vaginosis - without hormones, without coloring or fragrances. The soft gel with lactic acid and extra glycogen can restore the natural pH value in the vagina and in this way relieves typical symptoms such as excessive discharge and odour. Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Treatment Vaginal Gel is very well tolerated and also suitable during pregnancy.
Bacterial vaginosis - when the vaginal environment is disturbed
Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of vaginal infections. A disturbance of the physiological vaginal environment plays a decisive role. There is normally an acidic pH value in the vagina – this is ensured by the lactic acid-producing bacteria. This acidic vaginal environment protects against bacterial infections. However, various factors, such as hormone fluctuations during menopause or during pregnancy, certain medications such as antibiotics or contraceptives (e.g. the IUD) can influence the pH value in the vagina - bacterial vaginosis can be the result.
One thing is certain: Such a vaginal infection with typical symptoms such as excessive discharge and odor is more than unpleasant and should be treated specifically.
Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Vaginal Gel:
Lactic acid and the extra glycogen
Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Vaginal Gel helps the vaginal flora to help itself. Because the lactic acid it contains regenerates and stabilizes the natural pH value in the vagina. In addition, Lactofem ® Lactic Acid Treatment also contains glycogen, which serves as a food source for lactic acid bacteria and promotes their growth and reproduction. Lactofem ® lactic acid treatment thus contributes to keeping the vaginal mucosa healthy.
* Lactobacilli of the natural vaginal flora ensure an acidic pH value by metabolizing glycogen and thus protect against colonization with pathogenic germs.
Lactofem ® lactic acid is therefore not only suitable for the supportive treatment of bacterial vaginosis, but also for the prevention of recurring vaginal infections.
The Lactofem ® lactic acid treatment vaginal gel convinces with numerous advantages:
✔ Soft gel texture
Hormone-free ✔ Free from dyes and fragrances
✔ Without fats, paraffins and fragrances
✔ Free from ingredients of animal origin
✔ Also suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding
Since bacterial vaginosis is often confused with other vaginal infections, a doctor should be consulted in case of doubt to confirm the diagnosis.
