7 Things That Alter Your Vaginal pH
Sponsored by Vagisil
You’ve probably heard about vaginal pH but do you know what it really is? pH levels are a measurement of how acidic or non-acidic something is. Acidity might sound like a bad thing, but it actually represents the presence of healthy bacteria in the vagina. pH levels are measured on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 representing the highest acidity and 10 representing the lowest. A normal pH level for a vagina is between 3.5 and 4.5, so the vagina is rather acidic. When pH levels rise, that means acidity has dropped, and so has healthy, protective bacteria. So what can make that happen? These 7 everyday things can alter your vaginal pH.
