Getting Fem Dophilus To The Source
Q. Is it better to insert the Fem Dophilus into the vagina or take it by mouth?
A. Fem Dophilus was designed to take by mouth and research has proved that taken by mouth, the probiotic bacteria will end up in the vagina. However, some people want to get it straight to the source and it is safe to use it vaginally. Safe but not convenient! The bacteria are enclosed in a gelatin and titanium dioxide capsule which will NOT dissolve with the heat of your body. They are made to be digested. So if you want to use Fem Dophilus vaginally you need to transfer it to a pure gelatin capsule or add it to yogurt. You can see how other women have tackled this problem of inserting yogurt.
Personally, I would take take 2 capsules a day by mouth for one month and then if you're completely clear of symptoms, reduce the dose down to 1 tablet once a day.
After another month, take 1 tablet every second day, and a few weeks late move on to twice a week. The strategy is to SLOWLY phase out the Fem Dophilus.

Research has shown that these two probiotics can remain in the vagina for up to 19 days after you stop taking them.
So I would chose taking by mouth simply because that is how they were designed to be taken. But there is no reason why you can't use them vaginally if you prefer. Just remember to remove the powder from the capsule because the capsule is NOT designed to dissolve through body heat.
