    Vaginal pH balance helps avoid vaginal yeast infections

    The delicate balance of the vagina’s ecosystem is intrinsically linked to its pH levels. When in harmony, the vaginal pH hovers around the slightly acidic mark of around 3.5. This unique acidic environment is nature’s safeguard, ensuring harmful pathogens and opportunistic invaders like Candida albicans stay at bay. However, various factors, from diet, over menstruation to certain medications, douches and moisturizers can tilt this balance, veering it towards alkalinity. When this happens, the defense mechanism weakens, giving Candida, the chief culprit behind vaginal yeast infections, a window to thrive. Understanding the and preserving this pH equilibrium is paramount for the overall well-being and defense of the vaginal milieu.
