The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of using oral U-relax on HPV infected women for vaginal environment health promotion, and the HPV DNA Test Index change from positive to negative. Long-term infection of HPV is associated with cervical cancer. U-relax contains Lactobacillus GR-1 and Lactobacillus RC-14 and has been approved of its benefits on treatment of BV, UTI, IBD and can improve vaginal environment health. Patients with positive result of HPV DNA test have no appropriate and aggressive treatment to reduce the risk of cervical cancer. This clinical trial tries to reveal the influence of oral U-relax and patients with HPV DNA test positive result.
