It is very important for women to be concerned about their vaginal health. They should know that a small discharge of secret is a sign of a healthy vagina because the healthy vagina is ideally acidic and contains a good amount of bacteria that fight off infections and keeps the acidic pH balance. This secret is similar to the saliva in your mouth. But if you notice some changes in these conditions, you may be facing up an infection or even vaginal disease.
There are signs that warn you that there is something wrong. If you feel burning and itching in the vulva and vagina, large amounts of discharge, red, inflamed and painful mucous membranes, the appearance of lesions, strong unpleasant odor, abnormal bleeding, bleeding after sexual activities and dry vagina, you should know that there is something wrong with your vagina.
Here are some tips in order to keep your vagina healthy and clean at the same time:
Preserve the vaginal pH balance without touching
The ideal vaginal pH level is between 3.8 and 4.5. The first sign is when you feel an unpleasant smell. Then, you should go to a gynecologist immediately! Douching can interfere with the vagina’s pH levels, setting the stage for infections. It will only conceal the odor without solving the issue. Our advice for you is not to use strong cleaning products because they can impair the acidic pH level.
Avoid junk food
You should avoid this food anyway because it can only do harm to you, but also, Dr. Rebecca Booth recommends to avoid junk food, sugar and carbohydrates in large quantities if you want your vagina to be healthy.
Eat a healthy diet for better vaginal health
A healthy diet and drinking a lot of fluids are important for perfect vaginal health. Some foods can help the well-being of your vagina and treat a lot of diseases, like cranberry juice and yogurt, which can help with a yeast infection or soy, which helps with a dry vagina. As you can see, a healthy diet is an important part of your vaginal health.
