  • technically, I think it could lead to a change in the vagina pH levels...

    the most common cause for the increase in the pH is a change in the microbiome of the vagina... or bacterial vaginosis

    and yes, Oral Sex can introduce newer microbes and bacteria from the mouth but... the same is going to happen with regular sex, even ejaculation from the men, the semen introduces more bacteria not just sperm... and also, menstruation can change the pH levels of the vagina if a tampon is kept inside for too long

    the pH of the vagina can change for difference reasons but it will not necessarily mess it up, because sooner or later it will adjust for balance... and that is why the balance also varies between 3.8 and 4.5

    • That high? 3.8?

    • @The_Shadow_Dweller I am not sure what are you confused about... or what you are asking me

  • It most certainly does. Just as pushing a penis into a woman’s vagina affects it, and pumping it full of semen affects it. The PH balance of the vagina is very delicate, and yet, it is made to accommodate the penis and semen, so it ultimately balances itself quite effectively.

  • Yess it does. I've gotten yeast infections a few times from oral. It's super important to shower/clean up after.

  • It may. If you're very sensitive down there saliva may cause a yeast infection too.

  • Probably, but doesn't seem like too much... just stay away from sweets like popsicles unless you want a yeast infection.

  • Maybe if he's chewing gum, drinking a soda, or something similar at the same time. It would take more than a tongue. Some lubes can throw off pH balance, and your ecological balance down there. A change in hormones or birth control is more likely.

    I don't know how much lube or saliva it would take to cause vaginosis, but regardless of that influx, the only partner I've had that happen to was because she was at a job where she had to sit on a regular cutting off any outflow of liquid or gases.

    Your wetness is a buffer solution, as even a creampie doesn't substantially throw off the pH, but rather the difference in pH destroys most of the sperm. Vagina's are usually around pH 4-5 if you want to stick a litmus strip in, and sperm is around 7, saliva is around 7 as well. If anything Vaginas are the coca-cola that can dissolve the penny rather than the tongue.

  • Yes it's possible but likely very rare from this method.

  • Not really. Saliva is largely just water. The vaginal cavity, if anything, would mess with the tongue more than the other way around and the vagina can somewhat clean itself, to a small degree, as well.

  • Yes. Doctors even tell you to pee within thirty min after sex or play to prevent bladder infections. The vagina is pretty good at self-cleansing/healing when a person is fit and healthy though.

  • That's not how it works, kiddo.

    Unless you're talking vomiting a mouthful of saliva down the cooch (a near impossible feat) it's unlikely to change anything.

    The vagina is shaped to expel.

  • No it doesn't, for a few reasons.

    1. When a guy gives oral go a woman, almost all of the action is on the labia and clitoris, outside the vagina.
    2. Saliva is mostly neutral pH water, which has no effect on the vaginal pH balance.
    3. Even if the saliva is not neutral pH, the effect is only temporary.

  • Could be! Or the mens mouth's Ph gets messed up, also a possibility 🤷🏼‍♂️

  • Probably but I wager its negligible.

    @SecretsofKB thoughts from the medical professional?

  • Saliva is about neutral (7.0). Vaginal mucus is slightly acidic. (4.0). Bear in mind that the Ph of urine is about 6.0 many girls get back-wash when they pee. I see no issue with an eager Australian Kiss.

  • Never messed with my ph balance. 😜

    • I did some research but all I found were dirty pictures of oral. I also left out the part about ph balance so maybe thats why. 😊

    • 😂😂😂

  • doubtful my mouth PH stayed the same I bet

  • Very briefly perhaps. Just don't jam a tums/Alka-Seltzer up there and you'll probably be okay 😸

    • Fiz fiz

  • I think a little, which is why it's good to always urinate after sexual activities that include your privates, and shower. But I'm sure you already knew how to stay clean and what not.

  • Do you have the remotedt idea what pH is?

    • Do you know what a penis is? 😁

    • Do you?

    • Thank you for your answer. 😁

  • I'm sure it does a little but I think the body is clever enough to correct that on its own. Still not a bad Idea to clean up afterwards.

    Besides if his tongue is in your pussy then I'm sure the PH balance isn't the biggest thing going through your mind lol

  • Pussy Heat balance? Yeah definitely over heats

  • Yes it does.

    • Username checks out.

  • Some foods also contain probiotics, including yogurt, miso, and kombucha. Changing tampons regularly. Leaving a tampon in for too long can increase the vaginal pH because the pH of blood is slightly basic. Changing tampons frequently also reduces the risk of bacterial infections, including toxic shock syndrome (TSS).

    So, it doesn't sound like it but I could be wrong

  • I heard it does
