Vaginal pH Balance

Have you been experiencing an unpleasant odor or noticed your discharge being different as of recently?

You may have disrupted your vaginal pH balance. Maintaining an optimal vaginal pH level between 3.8 and 5 is crucial for vaginal health. This acidic pH range is achieved through various factors, including the presence of normal flora such as Lactobacilli bacteria that secrete hydrogen peroxide and lactic acid. However, several factors can disrupt the vaginal pH balance, negatively impacting women’s health and well-being.

These factors include bacterial vaginosis, douching, menopause (GSM), menstrual fluids and semen, antibiotic usage, and sexually transmitted infections. Symptoms of an imbalanced vaginal pH include burning during urination, redness and swelling of the labia, unpleasant odour, a chunky texture, and grey or yellow discharge.
