pH-Balance vaginal pH self-test (5 tests)

Do you sometimes suffer from vaginal discharge (white or gray), unpleasant odor, itching or irritation?

Chances are that you have a bacterial vaginosis. Although many women think they have a Candida infection, bacterial vaginosis (BV in short) is the most common vaginal problem.

In all cases the above complaints have to do with a too low acidity in your vagina so that the wrong bacteria in your vagina get the upper hand. Your vagina is normally an acidic environment (pH value below 4.5) so there is always a good natural balance of the bacteria present. Sometimes, however, this balance can be disturbed. It is then useful to restore this balance to prevent a multitude of complaints.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could determine yourself, simply and objectively, whether that product does for you what it should do?

This is now possible with the pH-Balance vaginal self-test. This test measures your vaginal pH value in exactly the right place quickly, simply and completely painlessly. If you measure a value within the healthy range, then you know for sure that the product you use works well. If the pH value remains too high even after using that product, then you may be able to use another product.

You want to be sure that you do not use a product too often or too little? By regularly measuring with pH-Balance you can determine yourself when your vaginal pH-value threatens to become too high again and at that moment you can use a vaginal care product. You know for sure that you will never use too much (or too little of course) of these products. A safe feeling.

Prevent and recognize vaginal problems through regular use of this self-test.

Studies (including Simoes, 2001) show that women with Bacterial Vaginosis (or Fluor Vaginalis), like other STDs, have an increased risk of contracting and spreading HIV. Prevention of bacterial vaginosis can be of great value in reducing the risk of spreading HIV.

Every year 450,000 women in the Netherlands and Belgium suffer from bacterial vaginosis or a vaginal fungal infection and the associated consequences such as unpleasant odor, discharge, itching and irritation. Moreover, it has been established that bacterial vaginosis is involved in 15 - 20% of all pregnancies.

Why is measuring the acidity of your vagina, especially during pregnancy, so important?

Extensive and frequently conducted scientific studies have shown that during pregnancy women with Bacterial Vaginosis (Vaginosis) or Fluor Vaginalis run an increased risk of:
  • premature birth
  • late miscarriage
  • premature labor
  • chorioamnionitis (an infection of the uterus during pregnancy)
  • bacterial infection of the fetus
  • breaking the membranes too early
  • fever during birth
  • inflammation of the womb lining after birth (endometritis postpartum)
  • a (too) low birth weight
  • infection and inflammation of the pelvis with risk of infertility due to blocked fallopian tubes
  • lower risk of pregnancy with IVF treatment

In the event of a disturbed vaginal ph balance during pregnancy, it is advisable to contact your doctor. Gynecologists in different countries recommend this test and recognize the importance of regular testing for vaginal pH during pregnancy. To avoid the above risks, regular testing for this value is particularly valuable.

Recent studies also show that there is a connection between Bacterial Vaginosis and inflammation in the pelvic area of women. These inflammations can lead to infertility by blocked fallopian tubes.

In addition, it has been shown that women with Bacterial Vaginosis have a lower chance of pregnancy with IVF treatments.

The link between BV and the risk of contracting STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) is being reported in more and more scientific publications. Women with a BV run a greater risk of being infected with HIV and HPV virus.

Women with bacterial vaginosis are also more likely to contract an infection from the Chlamydia Trachomatis bacterium. Chlamydia is a venereal disease that must be treated with antibiotics.
