Aeryon Wellness vaginal pH testing strips are designed to easily and accurately measure how acidic or alkaline your vagina is on the pH scale.
The normal vaginal pH value for a woman of reproductive age ranges from 3.8 to 4.5, but the value may be slightly higher than 4.5 among premenarchal and postmenopausal women. A pH level within this range can help to keep bacterial and fungal infections at bay. When the vaginal pH is above 4.5, it becomes less acidic, making it easier for bacteria and yeast to thrive.
If you are experiencing burning, itching, and discomfort while your vagina has a pH of 4.5-5.0, you may be experiencing a yeast infection. If your vaginal pH is 5.0 or above, you may have Bacterial Vaginosis or another infection that requires treatment from a doctor.
