HOW many times have you noticed a little itch or bump… down there?
If the answer is “never”, you’re either lying to yourself or you’re not examining your vagina enough.
Because it’s not just your boobs you should be checking on the regular – your vulva (that’s the fleshy outer bit of your vag) also needs some attention to make sure nothing odd is going on.
Most of the time, small changes are nothing to worry about.
It could be that your underwear is irritating the area, or you’ve got an easily-treatable infection.
But if you don’t check, you’ll never know.
And although it’s unlikely, you definitely don’t want to miss any early warning signs of things like vulval cancer – which is much more easily treated if you pick up on it ASAP.
