Lactobacilli are found in the mucous membrane of the mouth, in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and in the genitourinary tract. It is known that lactobacilli have a beneficial effect on our health and are used in the production of fermented milk, yoghurts, cheese, and probiotics. However, in this article I show that lactic acid bacteria also cause many diseases. Lactobacilli produce lactic acid which acidifies the environment. There are some factors increasing the risk of infection caused by

composition and promote host health by accumulating organic acids (Rastall and Gibson 2015). Prebiotics, which mainly favor bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, can be fermented to generate short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) with colonic bacteria to fight chronic diseases (Tornero-Martínez et al. 2019). A synbiotic is a mixture comprising live microorganisms and substrate(s), selectively utilized by host microorganisms that confer a health benefit on the host (Swanson et al. 2020). Lactic acid bacteria, the most

The aim of this study is an attempt to answer the question of whether, in the light of available literature, the Lactobacillus spp. can be a factor reducing the risk of miscarriage.
Protective role of Lactobacilli in the vagina
The vaginal environment is a specific ecosystem with interactions between microorganisms, the host immune system, and vaginal epithelial cells. The vaginal microbiota is a particular example of microbiota in the human body due to the definite

albicans, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, etc. (Ayeni and Adeniyi 2012; Adeoshun and Ayeni 2016). This can be achieved mainly through the action of lactic acid (Graver and Wade 2011). During menstruation, the diminished population of lactobacilli and the presence of menstrual fluid make the vaginal less acidic, therefore, more prone to colonization by pathogenic microorganisms. Changes between different bacterial species in the vagina are associated with menses (Gajer et al. 2012).

Probiotics promote and help to maintain beneficial microbiota composition of the gastrointestinal tract ecosystem and have a positive impact on the host’s health. Production of exopolysaccharides is an important feature of probiotic lactobacilli. It increases the chance of their survival in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes adhesion to the epithelium; therefore, exopolysaccharides are important for the process of colonization. Two lactic acid bacteria strains were used in this study
