For the most part, your vagina takes care of itself. Pretty convenient huh? But there are still ways that you can help out, quite important things too! Here are my current top tips to take care of your vagina:
PEE AFTER SEX!!
I personally have never had a UTI but the things I have heard about it are unpleasant to say the least. This is after all kinds of sex. Oral, penetration, digital (fingering etc.) Peeing after sex means that any bacteria that may have gotten into your urethra get flushed out before any damage is done. I.e the painful burning peeing experience you’ll have.
Don’t wear pants to bed
It is a bit weird to start off with, and even a few weeks on but it’s good for your vagina! By not wearing pants to bed you’re allowing a few hours of proper breathing time for your vagina. Warm, moist places are perfect breeding grounds for bacteria so by allowing your vagina to breathe freely, you’re reducing the likelihood of an infection occurring.
Skip the soap
Like I said at the start, your vagina does a pretty good job of taking care of itself. That includes cleaning! Your vagina is very capable of cleaning itself and you putting soaps and extra water down there isn’t helping anyone. In fact it’s doing the opposite, messing with the pH of your vagina can lead to infections. So lets just let it do its thing.
That’s all I’ve got for now, until next time 🙂
