I bought these after reading the positive reviews regarding BV. I have taken 2 of the For Women probiotic pills a day, for just about a month and a half. Yesterday was tested and there was still not much of the good lactobacilii bacteria and still have BV. I give this a 2 because it may have helped regulate digestion.
These haven’t helped me at all and I’m so disappointed after reading all the 5 star reviews. Although I’ve rated 5 as I see they clearly work for others, I’ve had 60 tablets and noticed no difference in 5 weeks of BV symptoms.
Have had chronic/cycling thrush, BV and cystitis for around 8 months now. Taken all the medication prescribed by GP and nothing has worked. Was recommended these (also by the GP) and the great reviews looked promising. The probiotics did nothing and gave me no improvement whatsoever, despite my hope that they would at least relieve some of the embarrassing and painful symptoms. I took two a day for two weeks. If I had more money to spare I might try another two weeks but £20 is a big amount of money for me to spend on something that doesn’t work.
I’ve dealt with on and off BV for almost 2 years now.... doctor antibiotics, eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and nothing took away the symptoms like this has! Been taking for over a week now, 2 pills for the first 3 days, now I’m onto one and completely symptom free.
I have had thrush and BV on and off for years, thanks probably to abuse as a youngster and lots of exposure to bad situations. With a recent pregnancy I developed sepsis after pneumonia and was given a huge quantity of antibiotics. Having hyperemesis as well has left my intestines sore and I have a lot of what I hope is residual pain from sepsis. I developed thrush and BV again recently and did not want to take more antibiotics because of my sore tummy e.t.c, so I am trying these. [Antifungals] has not changed my thrush symptoms, yet this has helped immensely!!! I feel confident and it really has impacted my intimate health and I am able to cope with daily living and sex etc. I highly recommend these for women out there really struggling with life/sex. As supported on the website, reducing sugar definitely has helped too. Thank you optibac for recognising these issues and supporting women!!!

I went to see my local pharmacy as I had cystitis for the second time in as many months. I really did not want antibiotics again, as the symptoms simply recur. He then said I should try the new Optibacs probiotics for women, (and as I had had a course of the antibiotic probiotics when I had been prescribed antibiotics), so I bought some with the flora they call the intimate flora.
I have been taking them daily for four weeks now and having got rid of the cystitis quickly, I am pleased to say it has not returned, and neither have I had a cough or cold this winter. Sore throats are a norm for me, but as yet, I have not had one, so will continue with a daily probiotic. Thank you!
I have been taking these probiotics for approx. 9 months now after suffering constant UTI's with much pain & soreness for 4½ years after breast cancer treatment. I had all sorts of investigations under consultants & tried all the different vaginal gels & creams for VA. I even used a [vaginal insert] for a while which helped a little but not safe as it contains oestrogen & I have had oestrogen receptive breast cancer twice. A friend recommended these probiotics for women to me & ever since taking them I have never had another infection. Why GP's do not recommend I do not understand. I take two every morning.
I've suffered with the effects of PCOS for many years, and for the first time in ages I feel great again. My bloating has gone, my skin has cleared and I generally just feel happier. I'd also like to praise what great service I've received, the tablets came over the Christmas period and even came with a small gift inside! I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to feel a little healthier.
I had suffered with thrush like symptoms and dry irritated skin for a long time and tried many remedies to fix this before finding Optibac. So far, I have only been taking the probiotics for just under a month and I can say they have changed my life. I started by taking two tablets a day for two weeks and have since dropped it down to one tablet a day which I try to take preferably with breakfast and a cold drink as instructed. After a week I could notice my symptoms going away, after two weeks they had almost completely cleared up and by three weeks I finally feel completely back to my normal self which is SUCH a relief. I am really hoping this will continue. I have just ordered 90 tablets and will continue to take one a day. I can’t thank Optibac enough and highly highly recommend these probiotics for women if you are looking for an answer to any thrush like symptoms or similar problems down below. THANK YOU OPTIBAC!
