Are there any other factors that can affect the results of vaginal pH?

Certain circumstances may temporarily change vaginal pH and thereby falsify the measurement results. These include but are not limited to blood, menopause, semen, post-menopause, and perimenopause. It is therefore recommended to take the following limitations into account when performing the test. Perform the test:

  • at least 12 hours after sexual intercourse.
  • at least 12 hours after vaginal administration of medicinal products (pessaries, cream, gel, etc.).
  • 3 to 4 days after your period ends.
  • at least 15 minutes after urinating: traces of urine may lead to a false result. Also, do not use after washing or showering external genital areas.
