Facts About Feminine Sex, Sexuality, Sexual Disorders Every Woman Should Know

For the next two articles, I will discuss the most common personal hygiene tips that every woman should know about. Some may seem basic, while others you may not have known about. The purpose is to keep in line with the idea that prevention is better than curing — at least no one can say they weren’t told.

The best way to clean “down there”

The good news is that your vagina is a self cleaning “machine.” In other words, as part of its function, your vagina actually cleans itself. But, when you need to clean “down there,” the best way to do it is to use water and gently remove any possible dirt and debris. If you want to use a cleanser, make sure it’s a mild form of soap.  Try to avoid products with perfumes as it may irritate the area. Use hypoallergenic and pH-balanced gentle cleansers.

Try not to overdo cleansing in the area because it may cause an imbalance of the normal growth of bacteria around your vagina and lead to possible infections. Lastly, try to take showers and not baths. Bath water is full of bacteria from the skin, so sitting in the tub will allow these bacteria to reach the genital region, which can increase your chances of getting a urinary tract infection.

The best ways to prevent genital irritations

As said earlier, using water (with or without a mild soap) to clean down below is the best method of prevention. In addition to avoiding bubble baths, use soft, white, unscented toilet paper and unscented feminine products. Also, try to avoid anything that causes dampness in the region. That means promptly change your underwear after exercising or removing bathing suits as soon as you are out of the water.

The best way to wipe


Always wipe from front to back after using the bathroom.  Doing it the opposite way increases the chances of bacteria from your butt region moving to your vaginal region, which can cause a urinary tract infection. Wipe the same way for washing and showering. Try to wash your hands before using the toilet or at least before wiping (especially in public). When you are out and about in public, your hands are exposed to a lot of bacteria so washing your hands can avoid passing germs from your hands to your genital region as well.

The best options for removing unwanted hair

The best method for removing body hair is actually based on an individual’s preference. But depending on which option you choose, there are some up and downsides.

Plucking via tweezers/threading : This is a safe and inexpensive option and hair removal can last 6-8 weeks.
Downside : It’s uncomfortable, time consuming, and can cause skin irritations or scarring.

Waxing: Just like plucking, waxing results in complete removal of the hair and is inexpensive.  It can also last 6-8 weeks.
Downside: Waxing is slightly uncomfortable and can cause inflammation, irritation, and scarring.

Chemical (eg, Veet/Nair): Chemical hair removal products dissolve hair so it can be easily wiped or scraped away. Hair removal can last up to 2 weeks.
Downside: Creams can cause irritation and tend to produce an offensive smell.

Laser: This option targets melanin (dark pigment) in the shaft which leads to destroying the base of the hair. Hair removal can last at least 3 months.
Downside: Laser removal can be expensive, cause swelling, or skin pigment changes.

Electrolysis: An electric current is passed through a needle that is placed in the skin and destroys the hair follicle.  This process can ultimately lead to permanent hair removal.
Downside:
Depending on the skills of the person doin the procedure, this method can cause temporary pain, redness, and swelling.


The real deal with shaving

As shaving is the most popular form of hair removal, it’s worth discussing in more detail. One myth that should be cleared up about shaving is this: it does not cause hair to grow back thicker.  If hair does appear thicker to you, it may be because of the angle in which the razor or shaver cut the hair. Make sure you shave in the direction of hair growth to avoid razor bumps. Choose a lubricating shave gel to prevent nicks and cuts and place a cool compress on the skin after shaving to prevent irritation and swelling. Shaving can cause spreading of any existing warts so the best way to prevent this from happening is to use one razor for the area with the wart and use another razor for the rest of the body.
