Can try Nuvaring: The first step is to see an Obgyn who can evaluate you for infections. They can do pH testing if needed. The vagina self regulates so persistent acidic pH is not typical. Other causes of vaginal burning such as vulvovestibulitis can be investigated. Consider trying Nuvaring as it balances the pH between 3.5-5.5.
