Vaginal care dos and don’ts to prevent infection, odor, and irritation.

VAGINAL HEALTHCARE

It is important to know the dos and don’ts when it comes to vaginal care in order to prevent infection, odor, and irritation.

WASH YOUR VAGINA AT LEAST TWICE DAILY

If you work out, sweat excessively, or are involved in some other sweat-inducing activity, then wash after each activity. Make sure you change your undergarments at least daily and wash them in hot water to kill any stubborn bacteria. This will help to get rid of sweat and bacteria may have been trapped, leaving you feeling and smelling better.

DO NOT DOUCHE

Don’t use antiseptic soaps or body scrubs to wash your vagina. These products make the vagina unfavorable for good bacteria and impact on vagina health causing candida super-infection (the one popularly called “toilet infection”).

ALWAYS EAT PLAIN

Unflavored yogurt regularly or take probiotics. These have live active bacteria that contribute to the healthy ecological balance of the vagina.

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR VAGINA DRY

Unless you are having sexual intercourse. Keeping moisture and sweat down there is a recipe for bad odor and poor vagina health. You can know your ovulation day; your safe period (when to have sex and not conceive), and also your fertile period every month with your phone.

ALWAYS CHANGE YOUR TAMPONS OR PADS REGULARLY IF YOU USE THEM DURING YOUR PERIODS.

The longer they stay, the faster the bacteria on them will breed, causing potential infections. You shall also avoid pads or tampons with deodorants, sprays or other chemicals.
