How do I know if my aerobic vaginitis (AV) is cleared?

AV may be associated with several indicators that you can check for yourself:

  • Odor: Unlike the fishy odor typically associated with BV, an unpleasant odor might suggest discomfort. You can insert a cotton swab into the vagina, let it become moist, and then smell it. If it has an unpleasant odor, you might want to continue monitoring your condition.
  • Discharge: Changes in the color or amount of discharge, such as white, yellow, or grayish hues, can be an indicator. A reduction in discharge might suggest an improvement.
  • pH Levels: You can measure vaginal pH using pH paper, which is available online. The typical pH range for premenopausal women is between 3.5 and 4.5, and for postmenopausal women, between 4.5 and 5.3. Insert a moistened cotton swab against pH paper and compare the resulting color change to the pH color templates provided with the product. pH levels at or below the normal range might indicate a positive change.
  • Physical Discomfort: Look for changes in symptoms such as pain, irritation, redness, or swelling. An improvement in these symptoms can be a sign of progress.

These observations can help you monitor your condition. Remember, personal assessments are subjective, and it's always recommended to consult with a healthcare provider for accurate diagnosis and advice.
