In brief: Change in pH

Many things change the pH of the vagina.
This change can inhibit or Prohibit the growth of your body's normal bacteria. Without this normal bacteria, yeast and/or bacterial overgrowths can occur and cause vaginitis. I like probiotics for maintenance, but see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
