How to take care of your lady parts

A part of the female genitalia is called the vagina. When it is not properly taken care of, infections will occur. When fungus and bacteria grow uncontrolled in the vagina, it results in infection. Vagina infection is caused by unsafe sex or improper hygiene.


It is important to keep the vulva clean at all times, in order to prevent any form of discomfort or infection. Several women experience vagina infection at different times in their lives. It is, however, important to prevent vagina infections because it can cause great discomfort.


Here are some tips to apply often to prevent infection in the vagina:

1. Make use of warm water in washing your vulva. Dry with a clean towel.

2. Do not douche. The vagina naturally cleanses itself. Douching can affect the natural balance of organisms.

3. Wash your undies thoroughly. Do not use too much detergent. A mild soap will be perfect. Rinse carefully.

4. Wear white cotton underwear. Do not wear acetate, nylon or manmade fibers if your skin is delicate. Endeavor to wash new underwear before use.

5. Do not wear thongs.

6. Use soft white tissues. 

7. Use tampons during menstruation. Do not use deodorant tampons. Tampons should not be used for a long time. Especially during the night, do not use it all night, change it.

8. Do not wear panty girdles or nylon pantyhose. A pantyhose traps moisture and heat; this can cause a suitable breeding environment for organisms.

9. Avoid hygiene products that can irritate the vulva. Some of these products are Feminine spray, sanitary pads, deodorants, bath oils, etc. 




10. Eat diets good for the vagina


Probiotic foods like cheese, onions, leeks, yogurts are good for healthy bacteria to drive away bacterias that cause infection. For urinary tract infection, cranberry pills can stop bacterias from attaching to the bladder and urethra. 

11. Always wipe vagina from front to back

Wiping from front to back after using the restroom can cause E. Coli and other bad bacteria from the GI tract into the vagina.

12. Use condoms during sex with new partners.

13. Don't overuse antibiotics.

The intake of unnecessary and too many antibiotics can lower vagina health. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacterias. Too much of these antibiotics can affect the flora of your vagina, eventually resulting in yeast and other infections.

In conclusion, maintain good hygiene to avoid any form of infection in your vagina. Bath frequently and wear clean underwear. 

If you already have an infection, see your doctor.
