In brief: Depends on definit'n

Nutrition-focused practitioners will often talk about the 'acidity' of your tissues (blood pH must remain in a very narrow range or you die).
Diets high in processed foods, toxins in the environment (especially smoking) and other factors lead to an "acidic" state which predisposes to chronic inflammation and reproductive issues are included in this. See my website at: http://bit.Ly/9tlbym.

I don't really know what an individuals pH level means.
Where do you measure that and what significance does it have. I don't know and we certainly don't routinely measure that on an individual. My answer would have to be "no.".

Normal fallopian tubes don't show up on ultrasound, so I would be concerned for a blocked tube or hydrosalpinx. Have you had a Hysterosalpingogram or HSG test in the last two years?
