FAQs


How does pHembiotics™ Vaginal Health Support work?

pHembiotics™ products work to support vaginal pH balance by creating an acidic environment where good bacteria can thrive while breaking down biofilms that prevent the bad bacteria from multiplying.

How is pHembiotics™ Vaginal Health Support different from other vaginal health probiotics?

pHembiotics Vaginal Health Support is the first ever vitamin and probiotic blend for vaginal health! Current women's health probiotics only offer probiotic strains that die in the stomach. pHembiotics™ features select probiotics strains that correct stomach, intestinal, and vaginal health as well as key vitamins and other natural ingredients that are scientifically proven to balance vaginal pH.  The ingredients in pHembiotics™ have been carefully selected to address vaginal issues by correcting the route of the problem; pH imbalance and leaky gut syndrome.

Are pHembiotics™ products treatment for BV, Yeast infections and UTIs?

pHembiotics™ offers vaginal health support products that are not FDA proven to cure or treat BV, Yeast infections or UTIs. If you are exhibiting symptoms of the above-listed conditions, please schedule an appointment to see your women’s health care provider as soon as possible. Untreated vaginal infections can lead to miscarriage, infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, and/or premature labor.

Is pHembiotics™ FDA approved?

Our vaginal health support is manufactured in an FDA regulated facility that is certified for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) which adheres to FDA regulations. At this time, FDA approval is not required for nutritional supplements.

What if I don't have problems with BV, Yeast Infections or UTIs?

We are so happy that your pH has been able to maintain healthy balance however, the overwhelming research by the CDC supports that the majority of American women will experience a vaginal health infection in their lifetime. 84% will experience Bacterial Vaginosis, 75% will experience a yeast infection, and 50-60% will experience a UTI.  We recommend using our products as a way to prevent these imbalances in your future.

Why are probiotics important?

Probiotics are the good living bacteria that keep the digestive, urinary and female reproductive system running optimally. Probiotics play a major role in our overall wellness and are especially important for vaginal health. Today’s soil quality does not contain sufficient quantities of probiotics and other nutrients that support intestinal and vaginal well-being which is why additional supplements are imperative. pHembiotics™ contains both spore and non-spore forming probiotics to ensure correction of stomach and intestinal pH imbalance.

What about vaginal washes, douches or wipes?

The pHembiotics™ philosophy is that vaginal washes, douches and wipes can mask vaginal health issues and/or provide a temporary solution. Natural and unscented vaginal washes and wipes can be used as a supportive measure to maintain cleanliness which can help to prevent vaginal infections.  Douching is not recommended under any circumstances as it can exacerbate vaginal pH imbalances.

When should I take pHembiotics™ Vaginal Health Support supplement?

The vaginal support supplement is recommended for daily use to support vaginal health and maintain optimal levels of nutrients. Missing a few days of pHembiotics™ vaginal health support supplement should not revert your progress, however, going more than one week without supplementation can cause a setback. Recommended serving size is once daily and should be taken with food or shortly after meals to prevent stomach upset.

Does pHembiotics™ need to be refrigerated?

pHembiotics™ Vaginal Health Support is best if stored in the refrigerator due to the living nature of the probiotic strains.  Our other products do not require refrigeration.

Is it safe to use the Vaginal Health Support with medications?
