If you’re someone whose vaginal flora is particularly sensitive and you notice some of these symptoms regularly after sex or after periods when you’re having more sex than usual, barrier methods likes condoms will help keep your natural vaginal pH balanced – not to mention protection from STIs.
You can also keep your vagina healthy by choosing underwear that’s made of natural, breathable materials, like cotton.
Choose lubes that are intentionally created with your vaginal pH in mind, like our Sayl Intimacy Serum.
Similarly, be very mindful of how you clean your vulva and vagina and intentional about the products you use — remember: your vagina is self-cleaning and you don’t need to use anything more than water. Any product telling you otherwise or that your vulva should smell of vanilla and flowers is lying to you.
Lastly, a good probiotic can help restore balance, especially after a course of antibiotics.
