Best Kept Secrets to Good Feminine Hygiene

Things for the Vagina If you are using some items for this part of your body, here are some things you need to remember:

  • Please make sure you lubricant is water based or silicone.
  • Do not use products for around the vagina, as for example, lotions and others that aren’t meant for vaginal use.
  • Buy only breathable cotton underwear and make sure you change it at least once a day.
  • If you are using tampons, do not leave it for a long time because it encourages the immune system to respond and attack the foreign object. The same is intended for a condom, in case it breaks and a small part of it remains in the vagina.

Poor hygiene, bacterial growth, yeast infections and even hormonal changes might affect the odor of your vagina. In case it is smelly, you should try to resolve the problem right away. But in case there are other problems and symptoms, such as burning, irritation, redness and itching in the vaginal area, this might be a result of an infection. You should visit your doctor as soon as possible to get a diagnosis.
