In the treatment of non-specific vaginitis

Non-specific vaginitis is caused by a variety of pathogens including staphylococci, streptococci, pneumococci and E. coli. It may also be induced by a variety of causes including chemicals, drugs, surgical procedures, trauma and foreign bodies. L. sporogenes* administration to increase the vaginal acidity by the action of the lactic acid (produced by Lactobacillus) on glycogen in the vaginal epithelial tissues was adopted in a clinical trial on 44 patients26. The patients were divided into two groups:

Group 1: Twelve patients suffering from leucorrhea (white discharge) following cervical surgery.

Group 2 : Thirty two patients with nonspecific vaginitis without previous therapy. Of these, 26 were in the reproductive age and 6 were menopausal. The change in vaginal pH following treatment with MYCONIPĂ’ (L. sporogenes* tablets) over a period of two weeks is shown in the Figure 5.2:

Most of the cases showing persistently alkaline pH were post-menopausal, where acid could not be produced in sufficient amounts due to low substrate glycogen levels. Glycogen levels depend upon circulating estrogen.

The response to treatment in both groups is tabulated below: Type of response

Number of cases Group 1 Group 2 Total 1. Quick response and complete relief 8 (67%) 26 (81.25%) 34 (77.25%) 2. Delayed response but complete relief 2 (16.5%) 4 (12.5%) 6 (13.60%) 3. Improvement but not complete relief 2 (15.5%) 2 (6.25%) 2 (9.15%) 4. No relief 0 0 0 Total 12 (100%) 32 (100%) 44 (100%)

In comparison with a clinical trial using M.T.P. vaginal pessaries containing broxyquinoline and brobenzoxeldine where only 26.67% of cases studied were cured. It can be seen that L. sporogenes* therapy is the better alternative in the treatment of non-specific vaginitis. L. sporogenes* therapy provided complete relief to 91% of the patients and partial relief to the remaining 9%.

Continued usage of any medicine including sporlac is to be discouraged. The basic cause may be allergic to lactose (milk). It is advisable to go as per the suggestion of paediatrician -- to give breast milk or formula milk ...

Another potential cause of the diarrhea is sensitivity to a medication or supplement you are taking or to a food in your diet. Everything a nursing mother consumes appears in her breast milk, including herbal supplements. Ask yourself if you have started a new medication, herbal or other type of supplement when the diarrhea first appeared. If so, this may be the culprit and you should discuss the need for this medication or supplement with your doctor.

The SPORLAC powder is a probiotic of lactobacilli that help to populate the small intestine with beneficial bacteria. SPORLAC has been shown to be effective 80-100% of the time in stopping diarrheal stools in essentially healthy people in a variety of studies treatment trials. Only a few studies have examined its effectiveness in infants.


Dairy products are often a culprit in provoking diarrhea in nursing babies, particularly if lactose intolerance or allergy run in your family. You can test this by eliminating all dairy products from your diet for at least 3 weeks. If the diarrhea disappears, you have found the source of the problem.

Hi Nirmala,

Sporlac is meant for babies discharging green colored stool. If your baby is o.k. do not use it. If the baby is breast fed, occasionally this may happen. Regulate your intake of diary products and the problem shall get solved on its own.

Do not give any self-medication to babies. always consult ur pediatrician.

u should give only a quarter of sporlac to the babies twice in a day. use it very sparingly in dire necessity only.
