We all know that our vag!na is one of the most sensitive organs due to this fact, it is extremely important to take care of it. The society we live in is such that it is quite forbidden to openly talk about ways of maintaining vag!nal health. We tend to give in to the multiple misconceptions and because of that, we make mistakes in our vag!nal care routine.
Here are 7 things that gynecologists suggest every woman needs to do in order to avoid any vag!nal infections.
STOP OVERUSING ANTIBIOTICS
The excess use of antibiotics can be harmful to your vag!nal health. When you consume antibiotics in excess, it can kill both the good and bad bacteria of your vag!na, causing yeast and other infections to grow.
REGULAR KEGEL EXERCISES
This is a type of exercise that targets your pelvic floor muscles and strengthens them. Do your kegel exercises regularly as it helps to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles which result in improved bladder and bowel function.
AVOID THE USE OF VAG!NAL PRODUCTS
When we suggest avoiding the usage of intimate feminine hygiene products, what’s the best way to wash your vagina? The answer is simple. Wash your vag!na regularly with normal water after urination. Wiping it with a tissue from the front to the back is the best way to go about it.
VISIT YOUR GYNAECOLOGIST FREQUENTLY
Regular check-ups and screenings can help detect any complication in the early stages. So, go for regular screenings from your gynaecologist and opt for the HPV vaccination to reduce your risk of cervical cancer.
WEAR COTTON UNDER WEARS
We cannot emphasise enough the importance of wearing only cotton underwear. It’s always essential to wear cotton underwear as cotton is breathable and allows the air in. In addition to this, it also helps to absorb moisture which keeps the vag!nal area dry.
