Female pH-Balance

MHS is proud to announce the launch of its new pH balance test for female health.

The point of care test checks the acidic conditions of the vaginal environment which is an indicator of the level of protection from bacterial infections/pathogens.

An acidic vaginal pH value of 3.8 to 4.5 is a basic requirement for the optimal functioning of the body’s own system of protecting the vagina. This system can effectively avoid colonization by pathogens and the occurrence of vaginal infections such as thrush.

The most important and most natural protection against vaginal problems is therefore a healthy vaginal flora. There are many factors that regulate the composition and dynamics of the vaginal microbial ecosystem and that maintain the natural protective functions of the vagina.  One important factor is lacto bacteria.

Under the influence of lacto bacteria, the glycogen released from the upper vaginal wall degrades to form the sugar glucose and then lactic acid.  This results in an acid environment forming in the vagina, with a pH value that is usually 3.8 to 4.5.  This acidic vaginal environment forms effective protection against infections because the vast majority of bacteria that cause disease cannot thrive under such conditions.

This easy-to-use application can be used by women for regular personal health checks to ensure that the vaginal area is effectively protected from infections.pH-Balance instructions
