Abstract

Two methods of vaginal pH measurement have been compared. 100 pregnant women measured their vaginal pH by themselves using indicator paper strips and were afterwards controlled apparently by pH electrode. There was no significant difference between both methods, showing that pH indicator strip measurement is sufficiently reliable for pH determination by the pregnant woman herself.
