I thought this would be a good place for my question since you mamas know about probiotics, good bacteria etc...
Some background to my question:
I've been battling food allergies (dairy, wheat, rice, peanuts, apples, eggs, chicken, citrus...and some fruits...) since figuring out my ds had them for well over a year now. I've been on an elmination diet since then as well. We've been soy free too. I know that I, myself, have had a history of mild digestive issues & environmental allergies but not food allergies.
My midwife first found that I did not have any "good" bacteria in my vagina at my 6 wk f/u after ds was born through a swab test. I found out recently from my OB-GYN, through a swab test I requested, that I still do not have any "good" bacteria in my vagina
: . Thankfully I still don't have any "bad" bacteria. My Dr. said not to worry about it
: and my midwife said eat yogurt
: ........of course I worry about it and want some good bacteria
. Both ds and myself take probiotics.
So here's the question............I'm trying to find out how to establish "good" bacteria in my vagina. I've never had a vaginal yeast infection but I know people use cream to get rid of it so would the opposite be true to get "good" bacteria- as in insert probiotics to get some "good" bacteria colonies going? Anything else to do in addition? Just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue and how you treated it.
