Read the entire leaflet carefully because it contains important information to be considered by you when taking the medicinal product. Do not throw the leaflet away because you might need to read it later. If you have more questions, please contact your doctor or pharmacist.
Active agents are Lactobacillus gasseri (EB 01TM) and Lactobacillus rhamnosus (PB01TM) (lactic acid bacteria). A single EcoVag Balance vaginal capsule contains minimum 1x108 viable freeze dried lactic acid bacteria.
Auxiliary substances are waterless glucose, lactitol monohydrate, corn starch, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, titanium dioxide, magnesium stearate. The product does not contain preservatives, gelatine or other substances of animal origin.
Ecovag Balance contains two patented strains of probiotic Lactobacillus bacteria (lactic acid bacteria) selected due to their excellent characteristics of restoration and sustenance of normal vaginal microflora.
Lactobacillus bacteria produce lactic acid and maintain stable acidic medium (pH) thus promoting natural protection from infectious vaginal diseases. EcoVag Balance prevents vaginal itch, secretion, odour, redness and a sense of irritability or burning. The unpleasant sensations may be a sign of vaginal inflammation, e.g. bacterial vaginosis.
In the case of repeating vaginal inflammation caused by bacteria EcoVag Balance can extend intervals between such repetitions.
What you should know about lactic acid bacteria
Lactic acid bacteria is one of the components of natural vaginal bacteria in physiological conditions. The bacteria produce lactic acid and thus maintain normal acid medium (pH) of the vaginal mucus. This naturally suppresses proliferation of undesirable bacteria able to cause vaginal inflammation.
Causes of vaginal changes
The symptoms like itch, the sense of burning and secretion may be the signs of inflammation caused by fungi or bacteria altering content of the vaginal flora. The diseases should be diagnosed by your doctor.
The normal vaginal medium highly affected by lactic acid bacteria with pH 3.8-4.5 reaction may change due to various reasons: washing, sex, menses, intimate hygiene products, metabolic disorders (e.g., diabetes mellitus), stress, changes in the hormone balance (e.g., during pregnancy or menopause), antibiotic or intravaginal treatment.
Intravaginal lactic acid bacteria, e.g., EcoVag Balance, can aid significantly for restoration of the balance of vaginal medium.
How to use EcoVag Balance

EcoVag Balance can be used longer, if required. It is not advisable to use EcoVag Balance during menstrual bleeding.

If you were diagnosed a disease causing impairment of the immune system (e.g., AIDS) before encountering the symptoms of current disease, lactic acid bacteria can be used only after consulting your doctor because the risks of bacteraemia cannot be rejected.
