Imbalance in the vaginal flora, pH shift
What happens to the vaginal flora?
An imbalance in the vaginal flora, left untreated, can grow into a bacterial vaginal infection. An imbalance in the vaginal flora (also called ‘dysbiosis’) can be detected from a change in the acidity of the vagina (pH greater than 4.5). The pH level in the vagina is measured by a gynaecologist. A pH from 3.8 to 4.4 is normal, and can be achieved by rapid acidification with lactic acid, respectively. This measure supports the remaining vaginal flora.
What is the goal?
To support the vaginal flora.
