What are Destinol and Femanol. Well let’s start be defining bacterial vaginitis or BV. Bacterial vaginosis is an inflammation of the vagina causes by the increase of a bacteria within the vagina called gardnerella. This is the most common form of vaginal problem in women and effects 1 in 3 women at some time in there lives. So right now it is effecting millions of women. It is not a sexually transmitted disease but it can be transferred between sexual partners.
So how do you know if you have bacterial vaginosis. Well the main symptoms are an unpleasant fishy odor from the vagina that doesn’t clear after washing. A discharge from the vagina that is usually grey or white but can be yellow in color. Itching is not uncommon with bacterial vaginosis as well as a swollen vagina which normally occurs after intercourse. There is sometime but not always a rash and some soreness.
Apart from prescribed antibiotics there are 2 main natural cures for bacterial vaginosis once you have it. Destinol and Femanol. Both are very similar in that the are over the counter tablets with herbal and natural ingredients.
First up Destinal. $39.95 per bottle which is about 7 days supply. Destinol contains corriander seed, parsley herb and sage leaf as its main herbal ingredients and it is recommended to take 3 tablets each night 1 hour before bedtime. They claim to have a 95% success rate within 7 days. Destinol is non chemical and non perfumed. Having tried this product myself I was very pleased with the result and the service from the website was excellent.
Next is Femanol, its a more expensive product at $77 per bottle (although this is a one months supply). With Femanol you are getting a whole lot more than just a bacterial vaginosis treatment. Femanol helps with cholesterol support, can control diarrhea, support for IBS irritable bowel syndrome. Can help with gas, bloating, flatulence. Also controls bad breath and helps build a strong immune system. Femanol contains many active ingredients some of which are.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus. Which basically put are good bacteria that live in the vagina and help reduce the growth of bad bacteria.
Deodorized Garlic. Natures antibiotic helps very well with the bodies own defense against infextion
Beta 1,3 D-Glucan. known to build and protect the primary immune system. Also assist in lowering Cholesterol.
Neem Bark Extract. Anti fungal, anti bacterial and anti viral helps against yeast infections and thrush.
There are many more ingredients to Femanol and over all I think it is an excellent product. You have to take 1 capsule twice a day and can clear BV in anything from 1 – 3 weeks but it is a great product to continue taking to help support a health body.
Femanol does not require a prescription but the FDA could change this at any time.
