    Negative reaction to probiotics?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I've been primal and healthy for at least a few years now. After hearing all the hoopla about probiotics, I figured what the heck, a person can never be too healthy, so I got a bottle of the Trader Joe's brand.

    After taking it for a week, I came down with a bladder infection! What gives? Did I screw up the healthy balance of my digestive system by taking probiotics I didn't really need?

    Quite possibly unrelated.

    I agree, it is just a coincidence.

    I get occasional bladder infections only from having sex in certain positions and not from anything else. I doubt the probiotics are to blame, unless you request a culture from your doctor and the bacterial strain can be matched to something in the supplement.

    Yeah, I thought it was probably unrelated, I just wanted to check and see if anyone else had a similar story.

    Probably caused by the usual suspects: Too much sex and coffee, not enough water.

    always "go" after.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
