With an approximate pH value ranging from 3.8 to 4.5, the vagina functions in a relatively acidic environment. The acidity is due to the production of lactic acid by Lactobacillus in the vagina. This pH range is required for a healthy vagina for protection purposes. Any pH value higher than 4.5 potentially leads to serious problems. The vagina is typically at or slightly above normal body temperature. This acidic environment is important to maintain so that certain pathogens can not cultivate in that area. But usually this is not an issue because the acidic environment makes it impossible for the pathogens to survive. It is important to maintain moisture to prevent dryness and iirritation.
