The pH of SYLK is 4.7. The pH of the vagina is also around 4.7, excerpt around the time of ovulation. At this time, the pH of the vagina can increase to around 7.0 in order to give sperm a healthy environment for conception.
The moist nature of the vagina makes it a prime area for yeast/candida and fungal-type growths, such as thrush, to develop. However, yeast and molds can't survive under acidic conditions and won't develop in an area where the pH is at 4.7.
