To avoid irritation, thrush and many other problems, it is necessary for any woman to follow a few simple hygiene rules. They are appropriate at any age, relevant at any time of the year.
Rinsing the genitals is recommended 2 times a day – in the morning and in the evening. It is advisable to do this with warm rather than hot water. You do not need to use ordinary soap, it negatively affects the mucous membrane. A detergent is not required at all at such a frequency of visiting the bathroom. But if you have a habit of using, then you need a special composition for intimate hygiene with a neutral pH.
Detergents should not enter the vagina. This body is self-cleaning, it is not recommended to rinse it. Wash the vulva – the outer part of the genitals, paying attention to all the folds.
Panties made from natural materials – this is the perfect solution for daily wear. They let air through, do not cause irritation. Synthetic materials are not suitable for permanent use.
Panties change 1-2 times a day. At the same time, you don’t need to be scared if they remain allocated – this is normal. If they do not have an unpleasant strong odor or curdled structure, you should not be afraid. But if the color of the discharge is green or brown? and there is a strong repulsive aroma, then you need to go to the doctor.
Daily create to protect clothes from secretions. And they can be used, but the wearing time is 3-4 hours. Then the gasket must be replaced. If this is not done, bacteria multiply in the secretions, and this can cause itching, irritation and dysbiosis.
Disposable pads “do not breathe”, they create a greenhouse effect on the skin, which is bad for health. And it’s better to change your underwear more often than using a one-time protection. They are only relevant occasionally in situations where there is no soul.
Hygiene on critical days
During menstruation, you also need to take a shower at least 2 times a day, but you can more often. In this case, it is permissible to use pads, tampons or menstrual cups for protection. But it is important to remember that the tampon in the body should be no more than 4 hours, the pad should be used no more than 6 hours. The use of the menstrual cup is possible up to 12 hours in a row, but you need to make sure that it does not overflow. Gasket perfumes are a bad decision. Various additional components can cause allergies. If you use the gasket on time, there will be no smell from the discharge. Hence, the aroma will not have to be masked. There is no sense in choosing gaskets with a smell.
There are no rules for creating haircuts in intimate areas. Each woman decides for herself whether everything will be shaved, trimmed or removed. But the more hair, the more carefully you need to monitor hygiene. Hair can absorb odors, so long hair can be washed with soap for intimate hygiene.
When removing hair, irritation or ingrown hair may occur. All this indicates that the chosen method of hair removal is not suitable. And if ingrowth can be controlled with a scrub, then redness will not go away until another method of hair removal is chosen . There are home and salon procedures for the refinement of the bikini area, it will be possible to experimentally find the optimal one.
Hygiene after sex
After intercourse, it is recommended to go to the shower. At the same time, the vulva needs to be washed, but the vagina is not. No douching is necessary. This is acceptable in rare cases when there are doubts about the health of the partner and the fear of contracting it. Then the genitals are treated with Miramistin. When having sex with a regular partner, washing the female bosom inside is not necessary. Even if sperm is inside, it will be washed off when it seems to be in the shower without sticking anything inside. And if something remains, it will come out on its own in the next 12 hours.
Soap, even special, is used only once – before or after sex or is not used at all. Often it is forbidden to use it. Not more than 1 time per day.
Genitals do not rub with a washcloth, do not wipe with a female towel. They are slightly blotting on top after water procedures.
Hygiene is not difficult to monitor, it takes no more than 20 minutes a day. But the right approach preserves health for many years.
