Femanol - Does It Cure BV?

Does Femanol cure BV, vaginal discharges and vaginal itch? Like most products for yeast and BV - it depends upon who you talk to! Let me give you the facts.

For a long while the ingredients were not listed on sites such as Amazon and the advertising blurb simply states "can assist in the re-establishment of the natural lactobacilli in your vagina" which really tells you almost nothing. They are listed now.


What is in Femanol?


  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Deodorised Garlic
  • Beta 1,3 D-glucan
  • Neem Bark Extract
  • Thiamin (Vitamin B-1)
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2)
  • Vitamin B-6
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B-5)
  • Biotin
  • Zinc

This list does contain ingredients that have all been indicated as helpful for vaginal infections and/or immune problems. I'd be happier if they said which strain of Lactobacillus acidophilus it contained but all L acidophilus are lactic acid producing bacteria and that is a good thing for vaginal discharges and vaginal itch.

There is nothing in it that will hurt if you take a little more than the recommended dose. I notice one review says it didn't work for her until she took 4 tablets a day (recommmended dose is 2) but it is going to get very expensive taking it at that sort of dosage. And another woman said she had to take it for 3 months before she was helped.

And yet another woman returned to good ol' Fem Dophilus! She had figured if Femanol was 3 times as expensive it must be 3 times as good! For her - it was not.


Has Femanol Helped Other Women?

At Amazon there have been over 30 Femanol reviews over the two items for sale - same product, just one is for a single bottle and one is for 3 bottles . You can buy this product through those links however I would strongly suggest you do not buy 3 bottles of it until you're sure it is the right product for you.

5 STAR - 18 reviews- "works very well" - "product works, and it works quickly" - "works better than any antibiotic my doctor has prescribed" - "did help me within the 1st 4-7 days." - "noticed the difference within the first week" and "anyone besides me noticed how well this product also curbs your appetite" (but forgets to tell us if it worked!)

4 STAR - 4 reviews

3 STAR - 1 reviews

2 STAR - 2 reviews - "Femanol recommends taking two pills daily, however it takes four pills to notice a difference." -

1 STAR - 11 reviews - "used it for a good 2 weeks...still have odor and discharge" - "it was truly a waste of my money" - "This product did grow my hair, so i have longer hair, but still have body odor. "

Although it works for some women it is clearly not a resounding success for many. No single product works for everyone - so this product appears to either work well for you or it doesn't help at all - with a slightly higher probability that it will help.

It does not contain any ingredients that could harm you so if you're at your wit's end finding a cure for vaginal discharges or vaginal itch then this product is worth trying. It wouldn't be my top pick but sometimes you have to try a number of solutions before you find the one that works for your individual body chemistry and bacterial make-up.

What's my top pick? It would be Fem-Dophilus. It is a strain specific probiotic answer for vaginal infections.

In any Femanol vs Fem Dophilus shoot-out, I'd put my money on Fem Dophilus every time!
