Lactobacilli are the good bacteria present in your vagina. The two most common are Lactobacillus crispatus and Lactobacillus iners. They keep the vaginal pH acidic, preventing the growth of harmful pathogens like E. coli, Staph and candida, and are responsible for fighting infections like thrush and BV.
