The Vaginal Microbiome
The vagina is home to a complex ecosystem of organisms that may include bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeasts. Some of these organisms are important in keeping us healthy as they act to discourage other potential pathogens from thriving.
Disruptions in balance of any of these can lead to infections and/or uncomfortable symptoms. Every vaginal microbiome is different and factors such as age, hormonal disruptions and even antibiotic/probiotic use can contribute to changes.
The vagina consists on carefully balanced bacteria & fungi with an ideal pH of between 3.8 and 5.
Several things can bring this out of balance, such as the oral contraceptive pill, antibiotics, pregnancy, anti-fungal creams among others.
Vaginal infections, including bacterial vaginosis (BV), vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC), and trichomoniasis (TV) as well as STI's can cause
unpleasant symptoms such as;
Itching, vagina or anus
