The Killer and Flora Power: Two Amazing Suppositories for Vaginal Health

Almost every adult woman has dealt with the annoying itchiness and discomfort of yeast and bacterial vaginal infections. However, if you're constantly in need of over-the-counter or prescription antibiotic treatments, you may be hoping for other solutions. Enter: The Killer and Flora Power, a dynamic duo from Love Wellness, designed for a healthy and balanced vagina, free from harmful infections.

What can disrupt vaginal pH?

Under normal circumstances, vaginal flora contains good bacteria that defend against invasive microbes, harmful bacteria, and fungi. But when the vaginal pH balance is disrupted, the good bacteria decline, and so do the vagina's defenses. As a result, harmful bacteria begin to reproduce rapidly, and that overgrowth can either:

  • Become bacterial vaginosis (BV)
  • Result in a vaginal yeast infection

Many things can disrupt vaginal pH. These include birth control pills, IUDs, multiple sexual partners, medications, hormone imbalances, allergies and irritants, poor diet, inadequate sleep, stress, and poor hygiene.

What are typical medical treatments?

A gynecologist will prescribe conventional medical treatments following an official infection diagnosis. Antifungals such as Fluconazole or Diflucan are often prescribed for yeast infections, while Metronidazole, Flagyl, and other antibiotics are prescribed for BV.   

While these medications may kill an active infection immediately, they often create adverse side effects. Their powerful strength may cause uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea, headaches, fatigue, and rashes. Furthermore, they are often so strong that they kill the good microbes, allowing other infections to return shortly after treatment. Often, antibiotics will cause yeast infections, and antifungals will cause BV infections. This can set off a vicious cycle of inflammation, irritation, and infection.

But don’t panic. Love Wellness has come to the rescue with The Killer and Flora Power: two vaginal suppositories designed to balance vaginal pH and restore microbial balance. This dynamic duo can be used alone or together, depending on what needs to be treated.

How to tell if you have BV or yeast overgrowth

Vaginal infections can share a lot of symptoms, so it can be confusing to know which one you have.  Therefore, it is always best to get a proper diagnosis from your gynecologist. They will do an exam and take a vaginal culture, which gives the most accurate diagnosis. However, if you don’t have access to a doctor, you may go by the following general guidelines.

Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis

  • Your vagina has a fishy strong odor
  • Your vagina and/or vulva is discolored, irritated, swollen, or uncomfortable
  • Itching, burning, and pain in your vulva or vagina
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Feeling like you have to pee more often than usual. Peeing may sting if your vulva is really irritated
  • With bacterial vaginosis, you may have vaginal discharge that’s grayish, foamy, and smells fishy, but it is also common for BV to have no symptoms

Symptoms of Vaginal Yeast

  • There is no odor
  • Your vagina and/or vulva is discolored, irritated, swollen, or uncomfortable
  • Itching, burning, and pain in your vulva or vagina
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Feeling like you have to pee more often than usual. Peeing may sting if your vulva is really irritated
  • With yeast infections, discharge is usually thick, white, cheesy, and odorless. You may also have a white coating in and around your vagina

What’s the difference between Flora Power and The Killer? 

Flora Power and The Killer are both vaginal suppositories that are simple and easy to use. They're also both free of fragrance, essential oils, and other irritating ingredients.

Flora Power has Vitamin C and Lactobacillus probiotics. Flora Power's two superstar ingredients help lower vaginal pH and reduce harmful bacteria. They also promote the growth of good vaginal bacteria. In addition, the Vitamin C in Flora Power helps reduce inflammation and irritation from the infections that cause itching and redness. Vitamin C also helps revive the vaginal mucosa and lining, therefore strengthening vaginal immunity. As a result, Flora Power is effective in both treating and preventing BV.  

The Killer has one simple ingredient: boric acid. Boric acid is an effective and fast-acting agent that helps balance the vaginal pH and maintain healthy vaginal flora. The Killer helps reduce excess harmful yeast and encourages the growth of good bacteria. The Killer is best used when you have symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection.

When to use which:

For BV infections: insert one Flora Power suppository before bed for 5 days.   

If you have symptoms of BV, try using Flora Power as your first line of defense. You may also supplement with The Killer when the infection is not responding or if you want to prevent the yeast from overgrowing. Flora Power may be used to counteract prescription anti-fungals and prevent yeast infections, or whenever the vagina has a foul and fishy odor and needs freshening. It can also be used to heal vaginal irritation and inflammation following the treatment of BV or a yeast infection.

For yeast infections: Use The Killer, inserting one suppository before bed for 3-7 days. You may stop use once symptoms have resolved.

If you have symptoms of a yeast infection, The Killer is your first line of defense, as it is very effective at maintaining normal yeast and microbe balance. Flora Power can also be supplemented to add extra immune protection by restoring pH, repairing the vaginal lining, and enhancing vaginal immunity. Flora Power can also be used to replace the good probiotics in the vaginal following the The Killer or prescription yeast treatments.

For general vaginal health and maintenance:

Flora Power: Use 1 suppository before bed 1-2 times a week, 3 days apart. We recommend using at night, but it can be used any time.

The Killer: Use 1 suppository before bed once a week, on a different day than Flora Power. We recommend using at night, but it can be used any time.

Say goodbye to bad V days with this dream team from Love Wellness. The synergy of these two natural suppositories helps to balance vaginal pH levels and the microbiome.  A healthy pH and microbiome mean freedom from irritation, inflammation, and infection, allowing the natural health and well-being of your vagina to flourish!
