A guide to our Vaginal Health Probiotic

Staying balanced isn’t always easy. From starting your period to taking antibiotics to various hormonal conditions, there are so many different factors that can impact your vaginal pH balance. With our Vaginal Health Probiotic, you can promote a healthy vaginal microbiome with a simple daily probiotic vitamin.

Understanding your vaginal pH levels

Vaginal pH is something you may not think about or pay much attention to until something feels off down there. Your vaginal pH plays an important role in signaling whether your vagina is healthy or if you’re experiencing an infection.

Your vaginal microbiome consists of a multitude of microorganisms, including yeast and various bacteria, that maintain a stable environment. Typically, your vaginal pH ranges between 3.8 and 4.5, which is considered to be moderately acidic. This acidic pH range helps to actively fight off “bad” bacteria and yeast by preventing them from multiplying and spreading.

When harmful bacteria or yeast begins to grow and disrupt your normal balance, this can lead to various infections, including yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV). These vaginal infections can also be the result of pregnancy, immunodeficiency, diabetes, using antibiotics, or high estrogen levels.

If you start experiencing vaginal discomfort like itching, burning, or soreness, you can use a vaginal pH test to help determine whether you’re dealing with a potential yeast infection or a more serious vaginal infection like BV. Other symptoms include irritation in your vaginal and on your vulva, burning during sex or while peeing, and discharge that’s thick and white (similar to cottage cheese).yeast-infection-complete-combo When you’re ready to use a vaginal pH test, our at-home tests can provide answers in 2 minutes with straightforward, easy-to-use instructions.
