Take Control of Your Feminine Hygiene With life2O Vaginal pH Test Strips Your Vaginal pH Balance is Important The vaginal pH level is regulated by Lactobacilli bacteria secreting lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which give the vagina its acidic pH level. This creates a harsh environment for yeast and bad bacteria to thrive, thus preventing them from multiplying and growing in numbers to potentially cause an infection. Unhealthy levels of Lactobacilli can unbalance the vaginal pH levels which leads to itching, burning and foul odors. If left untreated, larger problems such as bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract or other types infections may occur. You should test your vaginal pH to help evaluate if your symptoms are likely caused by an infection that needs medical treatment or if you want to monitor your intimate health and take immediate action at the first sign of unbalanced pH levels.

A healthy vagina contains bacteria and some yeast cells. When the balance of bacteria and yeast changes, the yeast cells can multiply, causing an infection. Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a bacterial overgrowth condition that causes a “fishy” odor along with an unusual gray, white or yellow discharge. It can also result in itchiness and burning during urination. BV isn’t necessarily harmful but may cause an increased risk of a more serious infection like HPV (papillomavirus),herpes simplex virus and HIV. Trichomoniasis (TRICH) Trichomoniasis (TRICH) is an STD (sexually transmitted disease) caused by the parasite Trichomonas Vaginalis. In the United States, it affects an estimated 3.7 million people. TRICH usually doesn’t cause symptoms in the majority of those infected but it can increase your risk for more serious STDs like HIV.
