How Ingesting Yogurt Helps
i understand how yogurt helps in BV and yeast infections, because it helps to balance the acidity of the vaginal bacterial flora. it makes sense that if one is suffering from these ailments, that one should apply plain (unsugared) yogurt to the vagina. what i don't understand is how ingesting yogurt helps. simply, how does the yogurt get from the stomach to the vagina? perhaps this is a ridiculous question, but to me, it doesn't make sense that one would eat yogurt to cure a yeast infection rather than apply it to the infected area. thanks very much for your time!
