Why vaginal pH matters

What is vaginal pH?

Vaginal pH is a measure of how acidic or basic your vaginal environment is. A healthy vaginal pH is mildly acidic and ranges between a pH of 3.8 - 5.0. The pH level of your vagina plays an important part in keeping your vagina healthy. A healthy vagina is home to different types of acid-producing bacteria (Lactobacillus) which provide natural protection against infections. An acidic environment creates a barrier that prevents unhealthy bacterial infections (Bacterial Vaginosis) yeast (Candidiasis) and trich (Trichomoniasis) from multiplying too quickly.

An imbalance in the vaginal ecosystem can alter healthy vaginal acidity and tip the scale to the point of causing infection, itching, burning, inflammation, unusual odor, discharge and pain during sex. Vaginal infections also increase the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and are associated with adverse reproductive health outcomes.

In a woman’s daily life many factors cause imbalance in the vaginal pH, including – interactions with multiple partners, unprotected sex (semen), antidepressants, along with estrogen changes during menstrual cycles, hormonal contraceptives, during breastfeeding and menopause. Antibiotics can also wipe out healthy vaginal microbiome.

Feminine balance

Developing a daily routine that balances healthy vaginal acidity is key to supporting a protective microbiome. Aquafit BIO Gel Stick®, uniquely combines intimate training with the delivery of lactic acid to deep vaginal tissue to restore and maintain vaginal pH naturally.

By supporting a consistent acidic vaginal environment, Aquafit BIO promotes healthy flora regeneration including Lactobacilli – the beneficial bacteria prevalent in the vaginal microbiome – while preventing growth of pathogenic bacteria.

Formulated to mimic vaginal fluid with balanced acidity, moisture and salts, Aquafit BIO is the most effective way to promote healthy flora and reduce recurrent infections. 

Aquafit BIO is made of natural plant-based ingredients, no antibiotics or live cultures. A daily routine of intimate training (add just 3 minutes in the shower) supports your vagina's naturally acidic protective barrier.
