Nobody really knows: Individual supplements rarely have enough good research. Probiotics are usually still alive, if stored properly all the time from production, through shipping, to being on the store shelf. The problem is that nobody can really tell how much live material was in the package to start, how much is alive when one buys it, what exact effects there will be in the user, etc...

Please bring this up with your Gynecologist who knows your medical history. If you don't have confidence in your Doctor see another for a second opinion.
