What are hormones in our bodies?

How hormonal imbalances affect vaginal pH?

Hormones are your body's chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs

They are produced by various glands and tissues as part of the endocrine system. They communicate with the organs by sending messages informing them of the function to perform and when it should be performed.

Hormones aid in the regulation of numerous bodily processes such as metabolism, sleep cycles, heart rate, appetite, sexual function, mood, stress levels, and body temperature.

Hormonal imbalance:
Hormonal imbalances can cause unpleasant side effects as they affect different body parts. A hormonal imbalance is caused by an excess or deficit of a specific hormone, such as insulin, cortisol, thyroxine, androgens, oestrogen, or progesterone. Even minor changes can have a significant impact on the body including vaginal health.

What causes hormonal imbalance? What are its implications?

Hormonal changes can also lead to pH level changes in the vagina and cause an overgrowth of harmful bacteria and fungi known as 'candida'.

It can lead to swelling, abnormal discharge, itching, inflammation and irritation of the vagina.

The fluctuations in the female sex hormones can lead to chronic vaginal yeast infections and endocrine system irregularities can cause changes in hormones.

Medical research states that an increased oestrogen level can result in the overgrowth of the harmful fungus. Women before menopause are often more likely to get candidiasis due to vaginal dryness and pH imbalances. Using contraceptives for birth control can also impact the vagina resulting in an irregular menstrual cycle and dryness of the vagina

These hormonal changes vary the pH levels of the vagina.

The pH balance, on the other hand, is crucial to the chemical composition of the human body. The pH of a substance indicates whether it is acidic, alkaline (also known as basic), or neutral. The pH of bodily fluids, organs, and other components in the human body can affect biochemical reactions that support various functions such as digestion, metabolism, and hormonal production.

Keeping the body's pH level balanced allows it to function properly. An imbalanced pH level occurs when it exceeds the normal pH level.

A person with an imbalanced vaginal pH level may likely experience itching, burning, pain or swelling in the vagina.

What factors might be responsible for your hormonal change? Is it affecting your vaginal pH level?

The effective way to get rid of vaginal yeast infection is by applying ointment, antifungal cream, pills and enema gels. Choosing organic products, maintaining hygiene, managing stress levels, exercising regularly and eating a healthy, balanced diet can help to manage the body's hormone level.

The risk of developing vaginal yeast infection tends to occur mostly during periods, which can cause changes in the hormone level due to poor-quality menstrual products and irregular inflow.

It is vital to maintain your sexual hygiene during pregnancy, postpartum, menopause and breastfeeding, which can cause weight gain, facial hair growth, acne, skin tags, acne and vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse.

What is a healthy vagina's pH level? And why does it matter?

The vaginal pH ranges typically between 3.8 and 4.5, which is moderately acidic. However, this can vary for different age groups. During the reproductive years, between 15 – 50 years, vaginal pH should remain below or equal to 4.5. An imbalanced vaginal pH level, mostly above 4.5, can cause unhealthy bacteria to grow and multiply, which can cause infections.

The pH level of a healthy vagina helps to protect against pathogenic infections and maintain your overall intimate health. It also aids in the prevention of potential syndromes such as vaginal atrophy, STDs, and other unpleasant symptoms. With growing age, pH levels also tend to vary and can range up to 5 for postmenopausal women.

Foul, fishy smell from your intimate area? Does that make you feel uncomfortable?

Several factors may contribute to unbalanced vaginal pH, such as unprotected sex, excessive intake of antibiotics, douching (excessive washing of the vagina with water and harsh chemical products), hormonal changes and irregular periods.

Some common symptoms of unbalanced vaginal pH may be foul or fishy smell from the vaginal region, unusual white, grey or green discharge, itchiness, burning or inflammation in the vagina area. It is essential to take precautions to avoid vaginal infection by maintaining and balancing your vaginal pH level.

Unbalanced hormone levels can also lead to unbalanced pH levels. Using a condom while having sex, avoiding scented intimate care products, and including yoghurt in your diet are some easy tips to help you maintain a healthy vagina.
