Why Does Your Vagina Need To Have A Balanced pH?

Why Does Your Vagina Need To Have A Balanced pH?

Ladies, let's talk about pH! No, not the potential of hydrogen, but rather the pH of your precious lady parts. 

The vagina is a complex ecosystem that relies on maintaining a delicate balance of bacteria, acidity, and moisture. So why is pH so important, you might ask? Well, the answer is simple - an imbalanced pH can lead to a plethora of issues such as yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, and even painful sex.

The optimal pH range for the vagina is between 3.5 and 4.5, which is slightly acidic. This acidity helps to keep harmful bacteria at bay while promoting the growth of healthy lactobacilli. 

However, certain things can throw off the delicate pH balance, such as douching, using scented soaps, and wearing tight clothing. It's important to pay attention to your body and listen to its signals. If you notice any unusual discharge, odour, or itching, it could be a sign of an imbalanced pH.

So, what can you do to maintain a healthy pH? First and foremost, avoid douching and using scented products in your intimate area. Stick to gentle, unscented soaps and wear breathable cotton underwear. It's also a good idea to practise good hygiene, such as wiping front to back and washing your hands before and after sex.
