The drug is widely used in the field of gynecology, since it has antiseptic and antimicrobial effect, has in its composition active ingredients, approximate in composition to substances in the female vagina.
In the immune defense of the vagina enters the bacteriumLactobacilli, which produces lactic acid and has an anti-infective effect. Acidic medium created by lactic acid, promotes the reproduction of acidophilic lactobacilli, inhibiting the growth of pathogenic environment. Lactobacillus acidophilus also produces hydrogen peroxide and bacteriocins. They successfully fight infections and viruses that destroy the vaginal microflora.
Estriol is an estrogen shortactions. Has an immune trophic effect on the epithelium of the vagina. Proliferating mature epithelium absorbs the glycogen necessary for the functioning of lactobacilli, creating an acidic vaginal medium (pH 3.8-4.5). Creates a negative atmosphere of growth and development of pathogenic microorganisms.
Changes in the microflora in the vagina occurdue to the influence of many factors. This use of antibiotics, non-compliance with hygiene, disease, hypothermia and a number of other reasons.
