What Is pH?

pH is a scale used to measure the level of acidity of a substance with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most basic. For reference, water sits at a 7 on the pH scale while something like battery acid sits at a 0. The pH balance you have in your body helps with different functions, like digesting or fighting off infections.

Normal Vaginal pH

The pH level of a vagina usually sits around a 3.8 to a 4.5 — more on the acidic side. The level of acidity helps the vagina protect itself from germs and harmful bacteria. But if the pH in your vagina becomes unbalanced, you can start to notice certain symptoms, like itching, a strong fish-like smell, swelling, and irritation. Different things can cause your vagina to become unbalanced, including your diet or the hygiene products you use.

Impact of Diet

Some foods and drinks can positively impact your vagina’s pH balance while other foods can have a harmful impact on your pH level. If you’re noticing the signs of an unbalanced pH, it might be time to take a look at your diet. For example, introduce yogurts that have the same bacteria that live in your vagina while avoiding sugary or processed foods that might put you at risk of yeast infections.

Impact of Hygiene Products

Different feminine hygiene products can actually affect the pH balance in your vagina, leaving you at risk of irritation of infections. Some hygiene products contain different chemicals and toxins that can cause an imbalance in your vagina’s pH. If you’re looking to maintain a healthy pH balance while you’re on your period, opt for sanitary napkins and products that are free of toxins — like our Perfect4Me toxin-free sanitary napkins or pH wipes.
