Everything in nature is designed with a purpose, so as the vaginal discharge. Vaginal secretions help it clean itself and keep a healthy vagina. The vulva, that surrounds the vaginal opening, protects the vaginal opening.
Avoid discomfort and prevent infections by following this very simple rules:
We already mentioned the vaginal discharge, but when you wash your body you should wash the intimate zones too. NEVER with soaps or other chemicals, but only with warm water (not too hot).
If you see redness or feel discomfort, you can use slightly warm Chamomile or St. John’s wort tea. The soaps and showering gels are strong cleaners, and they wash out the good bacteria and change the pH balance of vaginal secretions. That way your vagina is prone to infections. For the same reason, don’t use feminine sprays. They suppose to make your vagina smell better, but very often they do the opposite, by ruining the bacterial balance.
Most of the women experience vaginal infections when they’re menstruating because having blood in the vagina changes its pH and throws things out of balance.
To stay healthy during your period, implement the following good habits:
Use condoms. The not only protect you from staying pregnant but from sexually transmitted diseases too.
Also, the pH of semen is basic, and the pH of the vagina is acidic. When semen is left in the vagina after sex, it upsets the balance in the vagina, leaving it prone to bacteria growth. This problem can be eliminated by using condoms or another barrier method. If you don’t want to use condoms, wash the semen away right after sex so it doesn’t have time to change the pH of your vagina.
For healthy vagina always wipe out from front to back to avoid transporting anal bacteria to the vagina or urethral prolapse. Use clean toilet papers and avoids wet wipes or other products that contain perfumes or chemicals.
Every time when you have sex with your partner, you’re exposed yourself to bacteria and several different types of microscopic substances who can irritate your vagina and be a potential cause of infection. Wash your healthy vagina with warm water after sex. This will greatly minimize the chance that your encounter will have an unpleasant after effect.
Pelvic floor muscles and the pubococcygeus muscle can be strengthened with repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscle, also known as Kegel exercises. These muscles tend to get looser and weaker with age and after giving birth.
Strengthening them can help you avoid issues like urinary incontinence and also increase sexual pleasure. Here are three steps for doing Kegel exercises:
This advice should prevent you from having vaginal infections or discomfort. If you notice something strange, talk to your gynecologist.
