Anatomy of the Vagina
First things first, vagina is not a dirty word. In our IGTV Series "Huha Health" we spoke with two gynaecological experts, Dr. Laura Nicholas and The Modern Mujer.
All about your pH Balance
What's pH balance exactly? The vagina is a micro biome that requires her delicate balance to be kept in-check: namely, that the "good" bacteria outweigh the bad bacteria.
What, exactly, is good bacteria?
We get what bad bacteria is, like E. Coli from our poop that can make it's way into our urethras and cause gnarly UTI infections –– sometimes from ill-fitting g-strings rubbing back and forth, hence our body contouring, stay put elastics in our Mineral Thong –– but what exactly is "good" bacteria?
Good bacteria is a species called Lactobacillus (there are dozens of different types of Lactobacillus) which produces Lactic Acid.
