Healthy vagina should become a priority for every woman.
Healthy vagina means acidic vagina with high level of useful bacteria and balanced pH values.
A light vaginal discharge is still a sign of a healthy vagina, but any disruption of the normal conditions could lead to infections and diseases.
Symptoms of an unhealthy vagina:
- Dry vagina
- Plenty of discharge
- Burning and itching in the vagina and vulva
- Inflamed and painful mucous membrane
- Appearance of lesions
- Bad smell
- Bleeding (especially after sex)
Follow these tips and maintain healthy vagina:
- Maintaining the pH balance without douching
Douching is harmful to the vagina because it decreases the acidity and lowers the pH values, making it vulnerable to infections.
The normal pH levels are between 3.8 and 4.5. If your vagina has got a strong smell, visit a doctor, because douching will just mask the smell and won’t resolve the problem.
- No junk food
Fast food hinders the pH balance. Sugar, carbs and fruit drinks can all cause yeast infections.
- Go for a healthy diet
If you want to maintain a healthy vagina and body, change your eating habits. Yogurt and cranberry juice can help you with yeast infections, and soy food can help you with a dry vagina.
- Practice safe sex
Condoms protect you from STDs, some of which are incurable. Oral to vaginal or anal to vaginal sex requires a new condom to stop transferring bacteria into the vagina.
- Reduce smoking
Smoking affects the lungs, but also the vagina – the nicotine hinders the bacterial balance and causes blocked pores in the vulva and strong smell.
- Avoid antibiotics
Try not to take any antibiotics if possible. They can have a chain response which leads to yeast infections. If you must take them, consume kefir, yogurt and fermented foods to soothe the yeast.
- Treat the infections at their start
The three most common vagina issues are yeast infections, trichomoniasis and bacterial vaginosis. If not treated on time, they can cause serious health issues. Treat them with topical or oral drugs.
- Choose your underwear carefully
Vaginal skin is sensitive so wear 100% cotton underwear.
- Regular visits to a gynecologist
Regular gynecological checkups are crucial for good vaginal health. The first examination should be at 21 years or in three years after your first sexual experience. The gynecologist performs Pap smears which can show any changes in the vaginal cells.
- Clean with water only
Clean water is the safest option to wash your vagina. Do not use any hygiene products.
- Choose your soap carefully
Use soaps rich in olive oil – they won’t dry the skin or distort the pH levels of the vagina.
