A bit unclear why You were assigned Atsilakt, was achieved eradication of fungi of the genus Candida, whether the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, unfortunately, is unknown.

Typically, such candles on the background of vulvovaginal candidiasis is not indicated, as in the acidic vaginal environment (optimal for Candida pH=5) creates a prerequisite for active reproduction of yeast. Therefore, check with your doctor the reason for the appointment of this drug (vaginal dysbiosis???).
