Taking Care of your Vagina

Taking Care of your Vagina

Taking care of your Vagina involves a lot more than soap and water while in the shower! It's surprising how many of us don't have Vaginal Health at the forefront of our minds like we do our other little daily rituals like Yoga, skin care routines, coffee in the morning and trying not to eat all of the chocolate and failing miserably. There are so many ways to incorporate Vaginal Health into your daily life without a 5 step routine. 

When your in the shower make sure your using Natural and Fragrance Free soap, some soaps can actually be drying on the Vulva (the external part of the vagina). You should only be washing the external part of the Vagina, never the internal part of the Vagina. Using soaps that are NOT Vagina friendly can actually disturb your PH-Balance and cause dryness and itchiness and can lead to infection. 

Let her breath, skip the underwear when you go to sleep! Or if your up to it skip underwear all together. If thats a negative for you then try cotton underwear instead of those lacy thongs we all have a dozen pairs of. Cotton underwear are a lot more breathable and lightweight and help when your trying to create a healthy, happy PH-Balance. 

ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS urinate after intercourse! Especially if you are not using condoms and your partner is not using the "pull out method". Peeing after Sex helps to cleanse the urethra from harmful bacterias and can really help to reduce the chances of getting a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) 

Do not use a Douche, on average about 1 in 5 women between the ages of 15 to 44 years old use a Douche. Most Doctors recommend not using a Vaginal Douche because douching can change the necessary Flora (bacteria that lives inside the vagina) and the natural acidity that lives in a healthy Vagina. Douching can cause an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, the Vagina has both good and harmful bacteria. An overgrowth of harmful bacteria can cause Yeast Infections or bacterial vaginosis. If you are already suffering from a vaginal infection, douching can push the bacteria up into the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes. 

Drink tons of water! Did you know that dehydration can affect your Vaginal health too. If your Vaginal skin is dry it is very likely that the inside of your Vagina is dry too. This can lead to itchiness and the very horrid Yeast Infections. One of the most common ways to identify if your dehydrated is by the color of your pee, your pee should not be yellow, if it is then there is a very big chance your experiencing dehydration. 

Vaginal Health is so important and it does not have to be a daunting task that always gets overlooked like moisturizing your body (cause who ever remembers to always put lotion on)?
