Avoid using scented soaps and hygiene washes as part of your vaginal hygiene. These disrupt pH balance and eliminate good bacteria. Shower and cleanse the vagina prior to and post sexual intercourse to prevent STDs and infections. Opt for cotton underwear and don't ignore any bumps, rashes, bleeding in between periods.
Maintain Healthy Vaginal Hygiene
Avoid Soaps And Hygiene Washes
The vagina is extremely sensitive and harsh chemicals contained in these fancy scented soaps and hygiene washes disrupt the natural pH balance that has to be maintained at a 3.5-4.5 level so that bacteria do not breed. Wash with plain water to clean the vagina.
Avoid Feminine Sprays And Douches
These sprays that claim to change the smell of the vagina are chock full of chemicals and result in washing out the healthy bacteria that helps to maintain the vagina free from infections and fungus. Opt for essential oils like rose, lemongrass etc mixed with water to spray on if it is a must for you.

Maintain Hygiene During Periods
It is extremely important that you stay clean and healthy during your period, as there is a chance for increased infections. Change your tampons and pads frequently and do not use panty liners every day of the month as this could lead to skin irritations. Opt for a menstrual cup instead of tampons. These are rubber cups inserted into the vagina to catch the blood and rinsed out every few hours. Chemical free and environment friendly, these do not irritate skin or disrupt pH balance.
Wipe From Front To Rear
After washing, wipe with plain, unscented toilet paper in the front to back direction. This is to ensure that no fecal matter enters the vagina and causes infections.
Opt For Cotton Underwear
Cotton fabric dries fast and prevents yeast and unhealthy bacteria from breeding. Organic, undyed cotton underwear is best for those who suffer from vaginal infections.
Wash Yourselves After Intercourse
Wash the vagina with warm water after intercourse to minimize unpleasant consequences of any bacteria or microscopic substances that may have entered. Both partners should shower before and after sexual intercourse to prevent unhealthy bacteria breeding in the body.
Pee After Sexual Intercourse
Bad bacteria may travel up the urethra as a result of intercourse. To prevent urinary tract infections, it is best to pee soon afterwards intercourse. This will flush out the unhealthy bacteria in the vaginal area.
Perform Kegel Exercises
Strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and the pubococcygeus muscle to avoid issues like urinary incontinence.
Discharges with a fish odor, rashes around the vulva, should all be treated on time. Timely consultation could prevent what may possibly be a STD such as HPV, Chlamydia, genital warts etc.
Look Out For Changes: Know your vagina- the way it feels and smells so that you identify any unnatural changes immediately. Strange bumps, change in color, bleeding in between periods etc should not be neglected.
Remember that the vagina is extremely sensitive and a vital part of your body. Awareness and caution be exercised as you care for it.

Also need some good article about sexual arousal of ladies above 60
All your articles are very informative. Many thanks for it.
At least the high schools took the time out to teach young ladies and they know how to keep themselves up every since they were young that's the point, And some foreign women don't even wash their hands so I doubt their personal hygiene is on the up keep.
So why are so many of them doing the same things she I'd asking women to avoid. Foreign women are taught by their mothers how to care for their vaginas . Not by the teacher in school.
Unless you are trying to educate foreign women but women in the US learned this education in high school.

Actually I discussed this info with my wife and she said it was accurate and I learned something about women. I'm just a smart ass\U0001f601
Kristy Marie Rinehard-Anzara A lot of women are not aware about these things. It is important for them to know! :)
Let's use the constructive feedback we just received from one another to better ourselves! I clean, you wack the bush and we can't lose!
Listen, girl. It's not sad. Some women just do not know what to do. I'm sure you've been to women's restrooms. This is a blessing to us all. I'm sure you wouldn't know where to start this discussion with a co worker. I'm just sharing this link... Maybe she'll take a hint.
Thanks for the tips cousin. Very interesting what we have here, what you said about the thing. \U0001f601
Klean the kitty and take a break from sex sometimes because douching isn't good. Oh, that discharge isn't normal, you might have BV (Bacterial Vaginosis), not a yeast infection, because your good and bad bacteria is off. Ijs. Researching is fun.
It's self cleaning unless you have an infection. Soap and water externally. No need for expensive products.
