Intimate pH

The vulvo-vaginal pH varies throughout the different stages in the life of women, as well as in situations of hormonal changes.

Between childhood and puberty is around 7.0-usually between 6.8 and 7.2, that is to say, neutral pH-, while from puberty to menopause varies between 4.0 and 5.0, a more acid pH to prevent irritation processes.

Why is it necessary not altering the intimate pH?

The vagina contains different types of bacterial flora; some of which are beneficial bacteria and others are pathogens. Beneficial flora helps maintaining a slightly acidic pH, so other harmful flora does not flourish, thus preventing the development of infections and other diseases.

When the pH is altered, the beneficial flora loses control against these other kind of bacteria, which proliferate and cause problems in the vaginal ecosystem.
