Lifestyle factors that can disturb the natural balance of your intimate area
Most women do not know that normal daily habits can disturb the intimate area's natural balance.
The vagina produces secretions to regulate and cleanse itself. These are normal vaginal discharges which maintain a balanced acidic environment. Any interference with this delicate balance will result in growth of bad bacteria, which increases the risk of getting vaginal infections.
Common causes of disrupting your intimate area natural balance are
Common practice of using soap (which is alkaline and hence, not advisable).
Inadequate intimate hygiene (not maintaining the optimal vaginal pH balance).
Tight clothes (Jeans and some sports clothing).
Unprotected and Intense sexual activity (semen is alkaline and affects the vagina's acidity).
Feminine hygiene sprays containing excessive fragrance (perfumed soap or wash).
scented toilet paper
Stress or Fatigue
While in most cases inadequate intimate hygiene is the main cause of this imbalance, the different phases and change in the life stages of a woman also cause the vaginal pH to change.
