Pathological vaginal discharges are one of the most common complaints of patients referring to specialized gynecological clinics. Since the use of herbal medicines has been considered as an effective and low-complication treatment method in recent years, the present study was conducted to review studies carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of Teucrium polium on the vaginal infections treatment.
The present study is a simple review study on the effectiveness of Teucrium Polium on vaginal infections treatment based on studies conducted in the databases of PubMed, Google Scholar, SID, Scopus, and Magiran since October 1984 to June 2019.
Discussion and Conclusion:
The results indicate that Teucrium Polium can be considered as a potential source of antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in the production of plant products based on the mentioned plant for vaginal infections treatment thanks to its flavonoid compounds, sesquiterpenes, α-pinene and linalool. Much clinical research has not been conducted on the use of Teucrium Polium on vaginal infections treatment, so it is recommended to conduct more clinical trials to prove the Teucrium Polium’s efficiency against common microorganisms in vaginitis and its treatment.
