I started taking them initially when I started for 30 days, and then stopped when the bottle ran out. To tell you the truth, I didn't notice anything different. YMMV.

I do. I can tell the difference if I don't. I think it should come to a point that one would not need to anymore but I apparently have not reached that point yet.

I only take them when I take antibiotics for something. Otherwise I will get a yeast infection as sure as the sunrise.

Thanks!This helps to put things into perspective. I wondered if I "needed" it. I am going to see how I feel without it this week.

I don't take probiotic pills, but I try to include probiotic foods as much as possible. Yogurts, miso, sauerkraut, etc.
What shall we do for this meal, Mr. Banting?

I take them, just because I've had issues with yeast infections. Maria has said our health begins in our gut. I can believe that.
