Vaginas are a much debated topic between women and society in general. There are a lot of tips and recommendations out there about how to have a healthy vagina and how that can help you have a more enjoyable life, but there’s a lot of information out there that’s  just plain stupid. 


Your vagina is a part of your body that lives with a lot of pressure, from you and from society. Here are four things you should avoid when it comes to the well being of your naughty bits:

Being Shy About It

It’s always embarrassing to come clean to your gynecologist about a problem regarding that area, but there’s so much information out there that it’s best to tread lightly and consult with professionals before douching or doing something invasive just because you want to have the cleanest vagina in the world. It’s not a competition. You shouldn’t be shy about asking any questions, on the contrary, be curious and proud.

Douching

Getting back to the topic of douching, which is a polarizing subject already, don’t do it. It’s been proven repeatedly that douching doesn’t offer any benefits to your body and that it screws up with your PH, removing your vagina’s healthy bacteria. Yes, bacteria can be healthy. It’s actually necessary; your vagina needs it to stay in top shape.

Over Cleaning

As we said before, your vagina has a lot of bacteria that it needs, and getting rid of it will do a lot of harm. Still, you have to clean it so be sure to shower regularly and to go to the doctor if you feel like something’s off.

Inserting Stuff In It

There are a lot of inventions right now like the Yoni Egg that are meant to strengthen your vaginal walls, manage PMS and improve your likelihood of orgasms, but the truth is that there’s not a lot of research out there to back up these results. Maybe the only thing you need to do to have a better and healthier vagina is to simply let it be.
