What is the normal pH in the vagina

Why vaginal dryness hits so hard after menopause

Natural solutions for balanced pH


Notice any stinging, itching or discomfort "down there"?  Vaginal dryness can be a real downer, especially after menopause when hormonal changes can cause things to feel different. But there is no reason to give up your Unstoppable life! Let’s explore the reasons behind dryness, dive into solutions and share some natural hacks to restore a healthy pH balance and overcome these uncomfortable symptoms.

Normal pH in the Vagina

Unlike your favorite bar of soap, which strives for a neutral pH of 7, your vagina thrives in a slightly acidic environment – ideally between 3.8 and 4.5. Think of it as your own personal protective shield! This acidity is maintained by good bacteria called lactobacilli, which produce lactic acid. Just like yogurt, this lactic acid keeps things balanced down there, preventing the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast that can lead to infections in your vagina and even your urinary tract, which is its next-door neighbor.

The good news? There might be a natural solution to help! Femarelle Unstoppable is formulated to support hormonal balance, which plays a key role in vaginal health. We'll delve deeper in the next paragraph into how Femarelle Unstoppable can improve vaginal health, so stay tuned!

As women age, estrogen production naturally declines, which may lead to changes in in your vaginal pH, from a low pH, acidic environment, your pH levels may increase and become more alkaline. This shift can make you more susceptible to the development of recurring vaginal infections, as the increased pH levels minimize your protective environment. Maintaining a healthy vaginal pH is crucial for comfort and overall well-being throughout every stage of life.

  • Healthy vaginal pH (3.8-4.5):

     This sweet spot allows good bacteria to flourish, preventing the growth of bad bacteria and yeast that can lead to infections. It also helps maintain a healthy vaginal balance and keeps things feeling comfortable.


  • Unhealthy vaginal pH (above 4.5):

     When the pH gets thrown off balance and becomes more alkaline (think soap!), it disrupts the good bacteria, potentially leading to increased risk of infections, irritation and unpleasant odor.

Why Does Vaginal Dryness Hit So Hard After Menopause?

Think back to your younger years. Feeling comfortable and lubricated "down there" probably wasn't something you worried about much. That's because estrogen, a key hormone, was busy keeping things healthy. It helps your vaginal lining stay thick and elastic, which naturally produces moisture. But as we enter menopause, estrogen levels drop!

This drop in estrogen can trigger a domino effect:

Thinner Vaginal Walls: Imagine your vaginal lining as a bouncy house for good bacteria. When estrogen levels drop, the "bounce" weakens, making it harder for your body to produce its natural lubricant.

Reduced Blood Flow: Estrogen also helps keep blood flowing smoothly to the vaginal area. When those levels dip, blood flow can slow down, impacting lubrication and tissue health.

Shifting pH Balance: Remember how your vagina thrives in a slightly acidic environment? Well, estrogen helps maintain that balance. With less estrogen, the pH levels can become more alkaline, disrupting the good bacteria that keep things healthy down there.

Is There Hope Beyond Hormones? Exploring Natural Solutions

Here's where things get exciting! Researchers investigated a plant-based option based on DT56a, a unique soy based compound (found in Femarelle Unstoppable) that mimics some of estrogen's benefits without being a hormone itself. The results? All the women in the study reported significant improvements in their most troublesome symptoms, whether it was pain during sex, dryness, irritation or even bleeding.

Tests showed a return to a healthier vaginal pH level, a sign of a thriving good bacteria community. After only three months, the vaginal cells themselves even began to resemble those of women without vaginal dryness. But the best part? The women in the study felt like themselves again, enjoying a renewed sense of comfort and intimacy.

This is great news for women seeking a natural approach to managing vaginal health after menopause. Femarelle Unstoppable with DT56a can be a powerful ally in your journey to reclaim comfort and well-being.

Interesting Fact

Did you know your vagina isn't completely sterile? It's a complex ecosystem teeming with a diverse cast of bacteria, not just the well-known lactobacilli. These "good" bacteria work together to maintain a healthy pH level, preventing the overgrowth of harmful microbes. While lactobacilli are superstars, other residents include species like Bifidobacteria, each playing a specific role in vaginal health. This delicate balance is essential for overall well-being.


So, there you have it! Now you're armed with the knowledge to get your inner vaginal ecosystem back in balance! With a natural solution like Femarelle Unstoppable, you can say goodbye to dryness and hello to a happier, healthier you. Aging should not be life changing. Take back control over your health with Femarelle — clinically proven, naturally effective.
