I can realy empathise.
Firstly if the 9-strain was going to work I would imagine that you should have seen some relief by now.
I have 2 suggestions:
1. You try a probiotic product called Vagiforte – a probiotic designed more for this exact indication.
2. If that is not effective, I suggest that you get a couse of medicine (antifungal) which will hopefully clear the infection BUT keep taking the probiotic (9 strain) as a daily supplement ongoing.
My theory is that probiotics may have difficulty “treating” a rampant infection BUT once treated they can prevent recurrence in sensitive patients, so it is important to keep taking them.
Unfortunately science in this area is also new and to my knowledge only select strains of probiotic which are not available in SA actually colonise (grow in ) the vagina. In all other cases, the activity reliers more on reducing the candida load in the gut and thereby reducing re-infection rates.
