Girls Clean Vagina
Maintaining vaginal health starts with your cleaning habits. As mentioned earlier, the vagina is a self-cleaning organ. However, regular vaginal cleaning can help prevent bacteria from growing and keep your vaginal area feeling fresh.
There are a variety of products available on the market specifically for cleaning the vagina. However, you don't need to buy anything special—you can use any mild soap or cleanser. Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals and scents, which can be irritating.
How to Clean Vagina
When cleaning your vagina, be gentle. Use only enough pressure to produce a light sud. Vaginal skin is very sensitive, so scrubbing more vigorously can leave you prone to irritation and infections. Cleaning with vaginal cleanser should take place while in the tub or shower using lukewarm water.
To clean your vagina after using the toilet, gently wipe it from front to back with fresh wet wipes or with toilet tissue, using the lightest touch possible. Avoid using dry toilet tissue, which can be abrasive and irritating.
Many women feel self-conscious about their vaginal odor. However, normal vaginal odor is usually nothing to worry about. A healthy vagina has a slight, musky scent. If you notice a strong or unusual odor, it could be a sign of an infection and you should see your doctor.
In general, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your vagina healthy and happy:
-Cleanse your vagina gently with a mild soap or cleanser once or twice a day.
-Avoid using harsh chemicals, scents, and abrasive materials.
-Wipe from front to back after using the toilet.
-See your doctor if you notice a strong or unusual odor, itching, or burning.
Don’t Antibacterial Soap
Just like feminine hygiene, your bath soap is also too harsh on the vagina. Especially if your soap contains fragrances, antibacterials, preservatives, or artificial colours. Vaginal soaps and washes often contain chemicals that kill the bacteria in your vagina. Vaginal bacteria is needed to keep yeast and other infections away. Vaginal soaps frequently contain triclosan which has been linked to infertility and antibiotic resistance.
Using a mild unscented soap is the best way to cleanse your vagina. You can also purchase over the counter washes and wipes that are specifically for vaginal use. And be sure to avoid using harsh chemicals, scents, and abrasive materials.
Wiping incorrectly after using the toilet can cause bacteria from the anal area to be pushed into the vagina, which can cause irritation and infection. Vaginal skin is very sensitive, so you need to carefully and take care of it.
