Female Genital Hygiene

Hygiene is an important issue that needs to be talked about more than it is. It is important to know about vaginal hygiene to keep your genitals clean and maintain a healthy reproductive tract. Failure to follow through at least some of these hygiene suggestions could lead to infections. 


Some signs of infections include:

  1. Burning during urination

  2. Odour different from normal

  3. Discoloration(redness) around vagina

  4. Itching 

  5. Excessive or unusual discharge (greenish, yellow, brown, off-white, or bloody)

  6. Painful sexual intercourse

Some helpful hygiene practices for women of all ages are:

1. Keep undergarments dry

Not wiping the vagina after urination causes panties to get wet, which can not only lead to bad odour but also put you at risk of vaginal infections. Hence it is always advised to wipe the area using toilet paper or a soft cloth so your underwear is always dry

2. Change sanitary pads after 4 to 6 hours

However, if you have heavy flow during menstruation then changing sanitary pads every 3-4 hours is a must. If you are using a tampon, then change it every six hours.


3. Clean the vagina after intercourse without fail

This is because body fluids and particles from the condoms can cause irritation. Not cleaning up after the act can make you prone to vaginal infections or urinary tract infections(UTIs). So, always clean the vagina with water after sex.


4. Avoid using soap while washing your vagina

The use of soaps laden with harmful chemicals can affect the healthy balance of the bacteria in the vagina. Moreover, it can also change the pH in the vaginal region, which can cause irritation and lead to the growth of unhealthy bacteria.


5. Avoid douching


6. Say no to scented feminine hygiene products


7. Avoid wearing tight clothes


8. Learn the right way to wipe


9. Do not ignore signs of vaginal infections


10.Never try self-medication
