In brief: RePhresh

Or boric acid capsules [you can buy these pre-made or do-it-yourself cheaply with boric acid and empty pill capsules, which you can get at the health food store or on-line].
Be well.

In brief: Vaginal pH

Is tricky and can be hard to maintain.
Blood from periods, bacteria, yeast and semen can alter your pH from acidic to basic. I recommend gynatren probiotics to maintain normal flora and vaginal acidic ph. Men who are uncircumcised can harbor bacteria that can make you prone to get bacterial vaginitis. Hygiene and possibly referral to urologist may be last resort.
