The vaginal flora is the combination of all microorganisms that consist of bacteria that are naturally present in the vagina. These bacteria are very useful and provide, among many other things, a protective layer to the endometrium and prevent germs from penetrating the vagina. Good bacteria also protect against vaginal infections and fungi.
A natural balance is important for a healthy vaginal flora. There needs be a balance between healthy and pathogenic bacteria. Healthy bacteria ensure a stable acidity in the vagina (normal pH value) and help fight microbes. Pathogenic bacteria mainly develop when the acidity in the vagina is out of balance.
The balance of the vaginal flora can be disturbed by hormonal changes, certain medicines and daily factors such as stress, fatigue, smoking, cleaning products, etc.
