Vaginal health as you age ?

Did you find that your ph balance changed when nearing your 30s? Dh semen has never caused me problems in the ten years we've been together but over the last year or so I've noticed how different I smell the next 24-48 hours after sex even with proper washing before and after.

Could a changing ph balance be the cause of this reaction ?

I would think so, along with diet and hormonal changes.

Diet is actually better now than it was prior lol. Think it's to early to start hormonal supplements ?

Currently I am using the Nuva Ring , since around April of last year. Maybe there is the correlation to the ph change .... Hmmm

I would ask your doctor if there's a link

No idea. My vagina now wears pearls, a chignon, and more conservative clothing. I guess they all age differently...

When you say "proper washing" does that mean you are douching? 

You could be messing with your pH right there.

I am 40, btw.

Started premenopause mid-thirties- had nothing to do with pH, more to do with hot flashes.

Had a hysterectomy at 37, so went through surgical menopause then.

I still have one ovary, though- it still produces every other month (very little) 

No pH problems for me.

No none of that , just mild soap and water. My mom went through menopause in her early 40s so that's still around 20 years away for me ( I'm 24 ) but I started my period at 11 where as she was nearly 15. I do have many cysts on my ovaries but my doctor currently is not comfortable doing anything permanent such as removal of any of my reproductive organs.

My last pap came back normal so I'm really unsure of what the change could be.
