View Full Version : Is acidophilus okay for IC patients?
I seem to be having more yeast infections lately. Am wondering if acidophilus pills are okay for us?

I'm not sure. I take them sometimes but I'm not sure if they bother me or not. I know we're not supposed to have yogurt, but I don't know if that's due to the acidophilus or not. It does occur naturally in our bodies, doesn't it?

I can't say for sure either. I know some do take them.....that is all I know. :grouphug:
I have read here before that it is fine to take it. I used to take it daily when I was first diagnosed with IC b/c I was very prone to yeast infections. It didn't seem to hurt my bladder at all ---- and I was pretty diet sensitive back then.

I take acidophilus and it does not bother my bladder. I was told to get the kind that you keep refrigerated because they are better for you.

sInce I had to be on Cirpo for months, I also took acidophilus twice a day and use it internally vaginally too, without it bothering the IC!! The only problem would be if the brand you buy has additives etc. I used DDS acidolphilus powder. You stir it in water and drink it. It really helps the yeast infections
