5 things your vagina wants to tell you

Girls, girls, girls… We have been so consumed in taking care of almost everything about ourselves except our vaginas. Okay, yes, you do spend time on bikini waxes once or twice or any chance you get, but is that enough? No.

If our genitalias could talk, I’m pretty sure they’re going to tell us these things:

1.”Please don’t use too much detergent on your laundry”

Heavily scented detergents may consist of chemicals that can irritate our vaginas. What you can do is look for a laundry detergent that’s made for sensitive skin or has no fragrance.

2. “Douching is a big NO-NO”

Your nether regions do not need to smell like roses or any other kind of flower. “Douching upsets the natural balance of your vagina,” says Hilda Hutcherson, MD, an ob/gyn at Columbia University Medical Center. According to US Department of Health and Human Services via Elite Daily, they have discovered that women who douched every week have more chances of developing Bacterial vaginosis and other vaginal conditions.

3. “Let us breathe!”

While we look good in skinny jeans and stretched underwear, this makes our vaginas sad. Every time we sweat, bacteria and yeast that brings infection easily develop particularly in those moist and dark areas. So, choose your outfit well. even for when sleep. Always wear something cottony and airy. And by the way, take off your gym clothes after a workout.

4. “Hurray for yogurt!”

Yogurt is rich in good bacteria like Lactobacillus which our body needs. Regular consumption of food with probiotics boosts our body’s healthful bacteria. In fact, Medline Plus via Livestrong report says eating yogurt is recommended especially to those who are taking antibiotics because these medicines increase the risk of yeast infections.

5. “I don’t want that ink near me”

If you want to creatively express yourself by getting inked, do so except anywhere near down there. Because your vaginal area has the most sensitive skin on your entire body, tattooing can trigger irritation causing itchiness, redness, and inflammation, explains Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a, clinical associate professor of ob-gyn at Yale School of Medicine.

So, we should always listen to what our body wants to tell us. Remember, prevention is better than cure.
