It is not as common bacterial Vaginosis or candida, and is often confused with those conditions. Many different types of Lactobacilli bacteria inhabit the female genital tract. This good bacteria fights of the harmful bactrium such as e coli, , Gardnerella vaginalis,Mobilincus and yeast organisms such as candida by producing H²O² and other compound like acidolin, and by also by consuming the nutrients that the bad bacteria would look to consume. But sometimes the Lactobacilli bacteria just seem to get too dominant and grows out of hand.
The symptoms of Cytolytic Vaginosis are genital area itching, a burning sensation on passing urine, excessive white discharge occasionally with a slight odour. These symptoms can tend to worsen in the second half of the menstrual cycle.

Within this containter a Sitz solution is placed at the vaginal area submerged

The sitz solution is 1 tsp sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) NOT baking powder to 1 pint of tepid water.
This should be done 2-3 times a week for the 1st couple of weeks, then once or twice a week there after.
The reason this works is because with Cytolytic Vaginosis the Lactobacilli cause the female vaginal area to be more acid, and the Lactobacilli like to grow in that environment. By washing the vaginal area in baking soda, this neutralises the acid environment making it less suitable for the excessive growth of the Lactobacilli bacteria
