Oh hi! As you may have noticed, your vagina does not come with an owner’s manual. Although, I can tell you that would have been really helpful and saved me a lot of infections growing up. Vaginas work basically like this. It’s like a little ecosystem. It maintains and cleans itself. The actual vagina, the inside, you never have to clean in there. And you don’t ever want to put anything in there. Well, nothing to clean in there. That includes douches, soaps, bleach. squeals What all that stuff does is go all up in there,.
And it bleep everything up. And the vagina has good bacteria that keeps you clean and healthy. By introducing soap or douching, you kill off that good bacteria, and you can mess up the delicate pH balance of the vagina, which can cause a yeast infection or also something called bacterial vaginosis, which is characterized by a fishy smell. You can also get urinary tract infections from getting soap around your rurethra, your urethra. Yeah, I can talk! So, any time you see the soap, it’s coming towards your vagina, you say, Get away, soap!.
We are not cool, be gone! Now, in terms of keeping the outside clean, the proper way to clean your vulva is to gently spread your labia or the lips, and then use some warm water and your hand to gently rub between the folds and clear off all the sweat and bacteria. So, you mean I shouldn’t use shampoo No. What about shaving cream Only on the hair part. What about toothpaste That’s for your teeth. Oh yeah. Vaginas are not nearly as dirty as people think they are. You want dirty.
Probe someone’s mouth. Warm water, your hands, a washcloth, or a loofah. That’s all you need to stay clean. I swear on my vagina! I think a lot of the reason why people scrub vigorously with soap is because they want it to smell really good. They’re selfconscious about when someone goes down on them. But in most cases, you don’t gotta trip. It’s normal for the vagina to have a mild scent. Every vagina smells different. The only time you need to worry is if it smells pungent or really strong,.
Because that could be telling you you have an infection. If you’re still feeling selfconscious about someone going down on you, just take a little dab of your favorite perfume, and put it between your thighs. And then there’s the question of discharge. Discharge, that clear or milky white stuff that comes out of your vagina throughout the month, that is your vagina’s cleaning process. The color, consistency, and quantity of discharge throughout the month will change, but only subtly. You wake up in the morning with a rainbow in your panties,.
There’s probably something up. I always think it’s funny when my partner thinks that I’m really turned on, but it’s actually just discharge. But I mean, for all intents and purposes, it works the same way. Now, some parting wisdomish. I have found the vagina trifecta. They are cotton undies, garlic, and yogurt. Wearing cotton undies allows your vagina to breathe. I mean, you like breathing, right So does your vagina. I’ll wear other types of undies, too, but I’ll try to make sure to wear mostly cotton. I also try to incorporate lots of garlic.
