The pH is in chemistry a simple acronym, a symbol defining the hydrogen potential in our body by simple measurement of the acidity rate and the secondary alkalinity rate by simple deduction but let's try to make it as simple as possible. The human body has an overall pH specific to each one which corresponds to the hydrogen concentration of a food, an organ. The pH can be between 0 and 14 and is measured on a single scale of acidity. Neutrality is right in the middle of this scale: the number 7 is the right benchmark. From 0 to 7, your pH is acidic . Beyond 7, it is said to be alkaline (or basic) . This famous acid-base balance so desired is nothing more than the harmonious synthesis of the work of absorption and digestion done as correctly as possible by the two media concerned (acid and alkaline). Quite a program then for the body which seeks at all costs to maintain the pH level of this complex body at 7.4 so that its essential functions are at their best operational level . Would the yo-yo and the trampoline be part of our health journey?

In practice, this beautiful theory of pH, which is a little too mathematical, is often undermined by the very understandable accidents of everyday life: our misbehavior (alcohol, medication, stress) can no longer be counted, they add up and end up seriously disturb the mechanics of our beautiful human machine. In scientific terms, we are talking about cellular homeostasis and its permanent fight to internally maintain a good acid-base balance within our body. It is thanks to this balance that we digest well, that we sleep deeply, that our skin renews itself at a normal rate. It is this fundamental balance for the organism that allows our body to self-repair, systematically replacing our old cells with brand new ones. As for our enzymes, the body's real little hands, always on the alert and in motion, they work at full speed as long as they remain in contact with perfectly compatible organic pH values ​​for as long as possible.

We are all living beings but none of us can suspect what is really going on in our organism: internally and without noise, a parallel and permanent life has developed since birth through the magic of electron exchanges . Could this curious process be a miracle? Not at all, on the contrary it is superbly studied and it will remain one of the mysteries of our existence on earth. It is “in chemical mode” that our body has organized itself to live and survive. Our biologists have given a name to this beautiful alchemy: metabolism. Metabolism has two components:

- anabolism , alkalizing and antioxidant, which builds the body, allows the formation of muscles, bones etc. through the digestion of food and which also consumes a lot of energy. It is he who burns the calories.

- catabolism , acidifying and oxidizing, which is there to destroy, to degrade the body in what is most negative. It is he who ensures the production of waste.

Despite appearances, these two components of our metabolism are equally essential for the body , the human body tending naturally towards a certain acidity.

So, go for the best acid-base balance possible from the different pH levels in our bodies. And it's not a trifle among others since the body is indeed more than a million billion cells grouped into 200 very distinct types of skin cells: liver, kidneys, bones, brain, both venous and arterial blood, breasts, vagina and many other organs. We manufacture 70 million new cells every day which take over from the “old” ones: that said, it is mostly our food that ensures their production.

Some pH data to follow to whet your curiosity - saliva: 6.8 - skin: 7.35 - bile: between 7.4 and 7.7 - urine: between 5 and 8 - venous blood: ideally 7.35 - arterial blood: in the ideal 7.4 - the stomach: between 1.2 and 3 - the small intestine: 6 - and for the record, the pH of the vagina: between 3.5 and 4.5


The correct balance of the vagina is essential for health. By its bacterial flora, the vagina is bathed in an acid environment: lactobacilli , streptococci and many other micro-organisms secrete lactic acid: this natural acidity acts very positively on bacteria, happily opposes to the proliferation of pathogens of all kinds and capable of triggering infections.

This vaginal pH is expected to decrease in intensity during its life : relatively neutral before the first period of adolescence, its rate gradually decreases to stabilize between 3.8 and 4.5 on the reference acidity scale until at menopause. Subsequently, the vaginal pH becomes less and less acidic over the years. No fixation to be made therefore on a supposed ideal vaginal pH. Too many parameters to take into consideration: age, stability or instability of the vaginal area, the fragility of the acid-base balance….

Did you know ? At the time of menstruation , the vaginal pH level rises to around 6 , because it is under the influence of blood flowing through the vagina. This is a period conducive to infections. During the ovulation phase , the pH becomes neutral or alkaline (it is then between 7 and 7.5) , which creates an environment conducive to the survival of spermatozoa. During the neutral or so-called non-fertile phases , the pH is between 3.5 and 4.5 , which creates a harmful environment for sperm. Too many variations in the vaginal pH unfortunately lead to an imbalance of the bacterial flora , with the unfortunate consequence of the appearance of vaginal infections such as mycosis or vaginosis.

The danger comes from everywhere: from taking too many antibiotics, from a lack or excess of estrogen or progesterone. On a daily basis, it is neglected or unsuitable intimate hygiene, unwelcome vaginal douches , poor quality soap that take over... Without going any further, however, let's point the finger at the disruptive menstrual cycle wish and that you need to watch closely. Identical mission for unprotected sex.

Your vaginal pH is in good hands: yours! Don't let him down, he's your most precious ally in your life as a woman .

How to restore and maintain your vaginal pH balance?

How to restore and maintain your vaginal pH balance?

The vagina cleans itself and for this purpose, it does a hell of a job internally to maintain its pH at its best level or even bring it back to a much more favorable zone for its vaginal life. If you have a big doubt about this return to normal, which is long overdue, immediately call on probiotics , which can play a really interesting and enriching role in bacterial re-colonization. You can also test your pH quietly at home with solutions available in pharmacies.

Another avenue to dig concerning intimate hygiene in sexual relations , our intimate serum based on probiotics . This care cream for the vulva and vagina maintains the balance of the microbiota.

In practice: Thanks to its bioselection qualities for the flora, the YESforLOV intimate comfort and protection serum based on Bioecolia® rebalances the bacterial landscape and thus strengthens the microbiological barrier of the mucous membrane. The protective power of these probiotics reinforces natural defenses by stimulating the production of antimicrobial peptides , key markers of immunity.

Let's be complete: it is not certain that probiotics restore 100% of the vaginal flora likely to be destroyed or weakened. So, don't be mad and don't empty your wallet hastily for your health in overly expensive purchases. There is no miracle solution for the good health of your vagina. So, a single watchword to respect: that of making the wise choice of a balanced diet , of giving priority to an unprecedented quality of life , of imposing a healthy lifestyle on yourself without too many concessions , of choosing cosmetics quality intimate and erotic products , to avoid wearing tight clothes and to use tampons and sanitary napkins, to be replaced by cotton menstrual panties which will be much more respectful of your privacy.



Vaginal lubrication is a natural phenomenon as spontaneous as it is involuntary: it therefore does not depend on your “good will” but on a host of circumstances in your personal life . This lubrication is greatly favored by your desires, your desires to make love or simply furtive hugs, but not only... it also manifests itself when this well-being of body and mind dominates in you, made of trust and security.

At the other end of this happy inner path that requires nothing else, there is also sometimes stress, anxiety, fear, too much haste: so many psychic or psychological obstacles that put a hell of a brake on the natural lubrication of your vagina. As a result, the infernal ball of repeated vaginal dryness awaits you. There is therefore no taboo concerning anything that can help you lubricate your vagina well so that you are not confronted with friction and burning.

There are a shovelful of products on the market that are not always good for your health, but it's up to you alone to make the right choices in lubricating products that facilitate contact and can be used alone (but together, it's is even better, right?).

Let's not dwell on the first form of lubricants, however the most common, since it is the “homemade” lubricant to take out of your kitchen cupboard or your bathroom: Vaseline , edible vegetable oils. It is all the same artisanal DIY with a lot of disadvantages and no feedback on the harmlessness of these products on your mucous membranes. In addition to running on contact with heat and staining your sheets, oils are incompatible with condoms.

Our preference therefore goes automatically to aqueous intimate lubricants (i.e. water-based) : they are effective, compatible with condoms, non-toxic, biodegradable and for the YESforLOV brand, the entire line of gels lubricants respects the pH of your intimate flora. Our water-based intimate lubricants have an average pH between 3.5 and 5. Some of our lubricants contain silicone. For these, there is no question to ask since they have no superiority in terms of efficiency , only the advantage that they have no impact on the pH . If you want to avoid the hassle, opt for our range of silicone-based intimate lubricants available in several consistencies.

For your vaginal intimacy , choose YESforLOV's moisturizing unisex lubricating gel available from €14.90: supple, non-greasy texture, made from purified water and enriched with hyaluronic acid and allantoin . Our natural and moisturizing intimate lubricant is perfectly compatible with sex toys and condoms . This intimate gel is very close to the natural lubrication of your vagina . Odorless, it does not stick, dries and effectively moisturizes gently and discreetly the mucous membranes of your vaginal area. If you prefer organic, you can also opt for our vegetable lubricant based on organic aloe-vera or our latest novelty, the natural iso-osmotic lubricant with organic algae .


Let your vagina clean itself. No “hygienic” soaps and liquids: all these products compromise the good balance of your vagina and also promote inflammation and infections .

Give your vulva or vagina a one-time helping hand with our natural and organic intimate serum . No question of going further since this little world of the vaginal area is doing very well on its own but on the other hand reacts very negatively to the perverse effects of certain lubricants and intimate toilets which dry out or irritate your mucous membranes.

Never introduce foreign elements into your vagina, it will make you pay a lot of money for it: no sea or synthetic sponges, no foods or liquids which would seem to you to be friends of your vagina and which, ultimately, are its worst enemies: lemon juice, vegetables and fruits, spices, dairy products... No more essential oils!

Particular attention to bring and vigilance for anything that could promote mycosis , cystitis and other bacterial vaginosis . All YESforLOV products such as water-based intimate lubricants are tested to prevent the risk of mycosis and guarantee the vital health of your mucous membranes .

It is very important to know well what is vital for oneself. For all people with vulva, regular monitoring of vaginal pH is in no way a necessity but a great indicator of your intimate health. According to Dr. Bohbot, knowing the pH of a hygiene product therefore appears to be of limited interest (except in the particular case of external mycosis) compared to its composition. The smartest choice we have to give you is to be mindful of the ingredients used and opt for a lubricant that has a pH between 3.5 and 7.

The idea to remember is that there are no excessive rules of hygiene and that it is rather preferable to operate the right levers which will effectively protect the vagina from infections and diseases. Give him every chance so that he can self-manage as well as possible, offer him a real high-performance lifestyle through its regularity and the indisputable quality of your intimate comfort and well-being products.
