We know that chemistry in the bedroom is très important. But did you know that the chemistry in your vagina is also very important to your health? They don’t teach that in school now do they? Worry not Mon Cherie - we’ll cover all that!
You’ve probably come across intimate products that claim to be pH balanced. Have you wondered what that means and why it’s important?
First, let’s recap a short chemistry lesson: What pH means? A pH scale measures how acidic or alkaline something is. It ranges from 0 (acidic) to 14 (alkaline/basic).
The optimal vaginal pH level is between 3.8 and 4.5. However, that might change during your menstrual and life cycle. Before menstruation and after the menopause a vaginal pH level of over 4.5 is also considered normal. In other cases, a higher pH level comes with some health issues.
