10 points to prevent bad vaginal odour
Bad vaginal odour is embarrassing and could make women lack sexual confidence. Offensive vaginal odour is an indication that something is not right. Usually a sign of infection.
Most women pay too much attention to grooming and hygiene of the whole body. But they often overlook the most important organ that makes a woman a woman; the vagina. Neglect could result in the upset in the delicate balance of the vagina.
Optimal pH levels to prevent bad virginal odour
Just like the stomach, the vagina has ‘good’ bacteria that produces an acid that keeps very thing is optimum condition. However, these ‘good’ bacteria thrive under certain acidity levels what scientist call pH levels. When the pH is too low or high ‘bad’ bacterial grow and cause vaginal infections whose symptoms include foul vaginal odour, itchiness, irritation and burning sensation. This must be treated immediately to restore the ‘good’ bacteria.
As we all know prevention is better than cure, so what can one do to avoid infections? The following points could save you money spent on treating infections as well as discomfort and embarrassment.
10 points to prevent bad vaginal odour and infections
- Bathe daily and if possible twice a day. Wash the Vaginal opening (not inside) with a pH balanced soap or just cold water. Please don’t use regular soap as it’s too harsh for the vagina.
- Don’t splash on the vagina with water when bathing or spray using a pipe or showerhead. This could spread bacteria from other areas. Instead pour water from the top of the vagina flowing towards the rear as you wash.
- Please do not douche (wash inside), thus avoid any douching product. The vagina is a self-cleaning organ so it doesn’t need any cleaning inside. According to new research douching increases the risk of bacteria such as vaginosis that is associated with pregnancy complications and other health issues.
- Make sure to wipe clean and dry with tissue paper after using the toilet. This will prevents vaginal odour and itchiness.
- After a bowel movement, wipe from front to back to avoid contamination from number two (anus) to the vagina.
- Keep pubic hair as short as possible because it traps moisture, sweat and odour. Long pubic hair will also increase the temperature which will facilitate the growth of harmful bacteria.
- You will also do well in avoiding fabric softener to wash your underwear. Also, After washing underwear, rinse several times to remove all detergent residues. Soap and especially fabric softener are made using very harsh chemicals which is not good of the vagina.
- Another thing, you should avoid wearing panties made of synthetic for extended periods of time. Unless you have a hot date with your husband; stick to cotton underwear. This helps to circulate air and the cotton absorbs moisture and discharge well.
- It’s advisable to keep the genital area clean and dry at all times. Moisture is responsible for vaginal yeast infections. Bad vaginal odour, vaginal pimples and boils in the genital area.
- Most importantly, remove your underwear as soon as you get home. If possible always sleep without panties to enable the vagina to breathe.
I would like to emphasis on the last point which is one of the most important. During the day, the vagina is covered with a least two items of clothing. Sometimes even more and in many cases in very tight conditions, like is the case now when tights and tight-fitting trousers are in fashion. At the end of the day, the vagina is in desperate need of fresh air and dry condition.
I would recommend that ladies invest in Aruba vaginal gel that eliminates:
– Bad odour,
– Smelly discharge and
