A few weeks ago I made a post asking for suggestions of probiotics which might be good for yeast prevention. Someone suggested the Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support probiotic, which seemed good, so I bought some.
A few days ago I was feeling like I had a mild yeast infection so I decided to insert one of the capsules vaginally. I've done it with lots of probiotics with relative success so it seemed worth a try.
I put it in at night, and the next evening I decided to put another one, but the capsule was still inside my vagina, the exact same shape as before! So obviously I didn't put a second one in. Then a couple of days later I got my period, and when I took out my menstrual cup later, out came the capsule. It was empty, but the capsule itself was pretty much whole.
I was pretty disturbed. Why isn't the capsule dissolving? That doesn't seem right. I'm not sure I want to be swallowing (much less inserting vaginally) a capsule that doesn't dissolve. Any thoughts?
