Healthy vaginal flora has a slightly acidic pH between 3.8 and 4.5. If the pH is higher, this suggests an imbalance in the microbial environment in the vagina due to bacteria or fungi. This is generally associated with symptoms such as a discharge, fishy smell, itching, burning or dryness. Pregnant women are especially recommended to check themselves regularly, because the infection is associated with many risks for the unborn baby. Women should also check their pH after sexual contact with a new partner and after therapies for vaginal infections as well as after surgical interventions on the vagina.
Using the “Vaginal infection prevention” self-test from Veroval®, you can quickly and safely find out whether your vaginal pH is higher than 4.5. All you need is one minute of your time.
