What is vaginitis and what are the symptoms?

It’s generally not a threat to your health, but it does cause redness, irritation or even pain, abnormal vaginal discharge and odour16. In some cases, when left untreated, this can result in serious complications48.

What’s the natural vaginal flora and why is it important? 

“Flora” is the word uses to describe the micro‐organisms that live on or in our bodies. Some flora actually have a positive effect on our health, while others can multiply to become harmful. In the vagina, the normal flora actually helps prevent infections17, 20. The normal flora is called lactobacilli that live in our vagina area. It protects women against feminine intimate area infections and keeps the normal vaginal flora intact. Sometimes, the vaginal flora becomes unbalanced, making it more likely to get an infection17, 20.

Will regular soap and body wash help?

Regular soap and body wash won’t eradicate the micro‐organisms that cause vaginal infections. What’s more, regular soap can actually upset the natural balance of bacteria in your vagina, making it more likely to get an infection.16

Why use BETADINE® Feminine Care?

BETADINE® Feminine Care products are specially formulated to maintain vaginal hygiene and protect against vaginal infections3, 16. They help keep the normal vaginal flora intact.17

The active ingredient in BETADINE® Feminine Care, povidone‐iodine, has proven to be effective against a wide spectrum of micro‐organisms that cause vaginal infections.3 The eradication of a specific micro‐organism may result in a gap in the make‐up of the flora that may then be replaced by harmful surviving or dormant micro‐organisms.17 Because it does not target just one type of micro‐organism, BETADINE® Feminine Care cleanses off the bad germs and allows the normal vaginal flora (good bacteria) to return.17
