According to your average health class, failure to use a condom when engaging in any type of sexual activity makes you susceptible to sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancy.
The normal pH level of a woman’s vagina should be between 3.5-4.5, so considering the average pH level of semen is about 7, and it is higher in alkalinity, when semen is ejaculated into your vagina it can kill the good bacteria needed to maintain a healthy pH level in the vagina.
Once the pH level of the vagina is unbalanced the body becomes more susceptible to urinary tract infections and yeast infections. The good bacteria is killed increasing the risks of yeast infections, UTI’s and bacterial vaginosis.
It is important to understand that a man does not need to ejaculate inside of you for his semen to knock your pH levels off-balance.
Some women have very sensitive vagina and their pH levels can be very easily affected if the semen is even around the outside of the vagina, not even inside. Women can experience burning, redness, itching, and lot of discomfort.
If you experience any of these symptoms it’s best to go to a medical professional to be tested and treated efficiently.
