No, you swallow them and the beneficial effect is then to all your organs.

Re: Should I insert probiotic capsules in vagina

It depends on the kind of probiotic capsules, your Pharmacist should be able to clarify if your capsule is intended for oral or vaginal use. Most times both Dr and Pharmacist recommend inserting the capsules vaginally at night just before going to sleep. Once you are clear of infection you can continue to use probiotics in various forms orally to help you with overall health and balance.

Yes, you can insert them vaginally, especially if you have an active vaginal yeast infection. If you are using them to prevent a yeast infection, take by mouth.
