Albothyl & HPV vaccine

So... I was prescribed Albothyl suppositories for my BV/Tricho problem to use every other day. After each day there would be tissue paper-like remnants which alarmed me so I decided to do a little research. Apparently the tissue thing is normal and here's a little info on the drug:


 
Albothyl has a selective effect on dead or pathologically altered tissue, producing coagulation with subsequent elimination thus resulting to that paperlike or rubber white discharges. Healthy squamous epithelium is not affected. Since Albothy is a broad antimicrobial spectrum,it destroys the pathogenic germs of the vagina (bacteria, trichomonas and fungi), and enhances the growth of the Lactobacilli (Doderlein's bacilli) responsible for maintaining the physiological acidity of the vagina. Albothyl quickly decreases subjective complaints eg, pruritus, discharge, etc. It possesses potent astringent and hemostatic properties. Re-epithelization is favored by reactive hyperemia in the treated area and by stimulation of the granulation of normal tissues leading to total healing of the tissues.

Does anyone here who has been prescribed Albothyl remove the "tissue bits" before inserting a new one? I read somewhere that you're suppose to do so and I figured I should too since it wasn't getting expelled completely.

 I was wondering, docs prescribe antibiotics for most crotch problems (lol) but is it possible that after treating the current problem, the use of antibiotics results in another problem, say, yeast?

Absolutely. There is a very cool balance going on in vagina that keeps each army of microbials in check so nothing takes over. Too little bacteria allows for yeast to proliferate. That's why taking so many women get yeast infections when they take antibiotics. It kills off all the bacteria, even the good stuff in the gut and crotch. Eating yogurt and taking probiotic supplements and cutting down on sugar and bread (yeast) can help prevent a yeast infection and help keep levels up of the good bacteria in the intestines and in the vagina .
