I’m sure you’ve heard of dozens of things you shouldn’t do to keep your vagina healthy, but have you ever heard of something you should do?

All women should be trying to keep their vagina healthy. Today, I’ll show you a few ways to do just that.

Practice Safe Sex

Practicing safe sex is a great way to keep your vagina healthy. Using condoms while having sex ensures that you won’t get any STD’s or other infections. You should always change the condom if you go from anal to vaginal sex, this will keep harmful bacteria out of your vagina.

You should avoid sharing sex toys with others, as this can also spread infection.

See Your Gynecologist Regularly

Seeing your gynecologist regularly for preventive care is one of the best ways to keep your vagina healthy. You should see the gynecologist at least once a year beginning at 21 years old. Gynecologists are trained to recognize, diagnose, and treat disorders that harm your reproductive system.

Treat Infections as Soon as Possible

If you realize you have a vaginal infection, such as a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, getting treatment as soon as symptoms arise is very important. If you get yeast infections often, it’s okay to use over the counter medicine. If you aren’t used to getting them, seeing a doctor is the best choice. This is just to make sure you actually have a yeast infection and not something else that may be more serious.

Follow Good Hygiene

After you use the restroom, it’s best to wipe front to back, to avoid bacterial contamination from bowel movements. It is also important to change pads and tampons regularly, typically that means every 6 hours or less. If your flow is heavier, you might need to change them every 2-4 hours.

Final Thoughts

It’s important to stay on top of your health, but sometimes we can forget to work on keeping our vagina healthy too.

Following these 4 easy steps will ensure you keep your vagina healthy all year round.
