How do probiotics help with fertility?

Gut and vaginal microflora are perhaps not the first thing that comes to mind when considering infertility, but maybe they should be? The beneficial bacteria living in our gastrointestinal tract are responsible for many essential metabolic processes, such as proper digestion of food, absorptions of vitamins, immune system regulation, defence against pathogens and a balanced vaginal microflora which are important in overall fertility! Research suggests that abnormal vaginal microbiota may affect clinical pregnancy rates in both natural birth and IVF patients. Probiotics help by keeping the gut and vaginal microbiomes at healthy levels.

You will pass on the good bacteria to your little one through your breastmilk and as well you needed the adequate amount of probiotics to boost your immune system. It will also help with postpartum mood swings.
