Lack of Protection Causes More Infections Than You Think


ec717a2574d4bdc9_condomWe all know, not using condoms is not a very smart thing to do when engaging in any type of sexual play.

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.

What they don’t tell you is that when you don’t use a condom, it also makes you more susceptible to both urinary tract infections, yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis.

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.

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.

 *Important*

If you experience any of these symptoms it’s best to go to a medical professional to be tested and treated efficiently.
