Is it recommended to use vaginal wash? If not then how can I maintain vaginal hygiene?
Hello, yesterday we had a session in school about sexual education. There one session was maintaining sexual hygiene by washing intimate areas. When I told my mother about she opposed it. Can anyone tell me is it recommended to use vaginal wash? If not then how can I maintain vaginal hygiene?
@amber Hello, The vagina is a self-cleaning organ that does not require special cleaning products. It does not even need any cleaning products at all.The vagina and vulva produce a variety of fluids that are important for overall health. People should not try to eliminate all vaginal odor by washing the vagina. A healthy vagina naturally has a slight odor. Washing the vagina will also not remove vaginal infections. In some cases, it may even make them worse. Using harsh soaps may dry out the delicate vaginal tissue, causing tiny tears that make it easier for dangerous bacteria to infect the vagina. washing the vagina increases the risk of a wide range of health problems like vaginal dryness. You can keep the area clean by keeping the vaginal area as dry as possible, which may involve changing underwear if it becomes wet with sweat, menstrual blood, or other fluids, urinating after having sex, to avoid developing a UTI and wiping from the front to back after urinating. It is important not to put soap into the vagina, and it is not necessary to use soaps that manufacturers have specifically labeled as being for the genitals. Thank you.
