To maintain a healthy vagina you must know what to do to avoid infection and it is equally important to educate your sexual partner on some of them to also help you help the vagina. This is not an article for women alone. It concerns the men as well.
However, here are some few things you can do or avoid if your vaginal health must be maintain optionally.
During foreplay or romance, some people insert finger(s) into the vagina. The question is, how many people wash their hands before sexual intercourse? Some people do not even keep their nails clean so it gathers a lot of germs, thus during the fingering process, these germs are deposited in the vagina…leading to infection. Same thing apply to autopleasure acts or masturbation and lesbianism.
2. ANAL SEX
I simply want to draw the attention of those who engage in anal sex to the fact that it is dangerous to have anal sex and continue having peno-vaginal sex paripasu. Anus is fully loaded wit all sort of bacteria. Therefore, where this is done, the penis will pick bacteria from the anus and deliver same to the vagina even if you are using a condom. That will lead to infection.
3. ATTEMPTS TO MAKE THE VAGINA TIGHT
Some men complain bitterly about the vagina of their sexual partners. They complain that it’s too big and they no more feel any sensation during intercourse. Some women are therefore pushed to find a quick solution and in the process some use herbs or other substances in the vagina with the hope of making the vagina tight. Some of the substances cause infection or sepsis. Some of the herbs can cause the vagina to get tighter to the extent that penetration is no more possible. This may require medical intervention.
Some parents, when bathing for their baby girls put warm water in a milk tin or dip a towel in the warm water and pour the water through a hole made beneath the tin or squeeze the water out of the towel into the vagina of the baby. This is sooooo WRONG as it can damage the hymen and even the vaginal Flora.
Some parents also insert ginger or pepper or both into the vagina of adolescents as a form of punishment. This is sooooo WRONG as it can lead to infection.
Some people are use to bathing by adding dettol or other detergents to the water and they put this solution inside the vagina with the help of sponge or towel or just the hand with soap to clean the vagina. This is soooo WRONG as it will change the normal flora in the vagina, leading to infection.
N/B: VAGINA can never be 100% odourlesr, no matter how hard you clean it. That natural odor was originally placed by God to serve as sex appetizer for men. You can observe goats sniffing each other. The compound is what we term “Pheromones”.
5. USE OF WATER CLOSET
Some people have the habit of not sitting on the seat of the WC when using it so they end up urinating on the seat. The possibility of picking infection when using it in that condition is high. Don’t let your pant be at the thigh level when using the WC especially the public ones as the inner of the pant may rub the surface of the WC. Where the water is not running and people have used but have not flushed and you don’t have any choice but to also use it, use enough toilet roll to cover before using the WC to avoid splashes on your vulva.
6. WASHING AND DRYING
Develop the habit of disinfecting your panties frequently…depending on the number of pants you have. Keep exclusive panties to wear whenever you are menstruating and don’t mix those panties with your regular panties. Pay particular attention to those panties when washing. Ensure that the panties are made of cotton and are dried in the sun or well ironed to kill germs.
7. CHANGE SANITARY PADS
Some people try to economize the use of their sanitary pads so during the period they tend to still wear the pad because there is little or no blood. This is soooo WRONG as it can lead to infection.
NB: If there is any bad scent from the vagina or there is a discharge coming from the vagina then it might be an infection which must be well treated.
8. WIPE YOUR BUTTOCK BACKWARD
Some of you form the habit of wiping BUTTOCK to the front instead of the back after using toilet. The fact remains that germs and bacteria from your wiped Anus may branch your VAGINA in the process of wiping to the front. Infection is inevitable.
9. USE OF BREAKABLES TO MASTURBATE
Use of banana, carrots, cucumber, plantain, test tubes etc is highly dangerous to the vaginal. I’ve seen cases of trapped plantain and carrots inside some women. When this happens they feel shy to open up even in the hospitals not until a diagnostic X-ray reveals things. Always so embarrassing.
10. PUTTING TO BIRTH WITH UNDERSIZED PELVIC DIAMETER
Before planning to take in as a young lady, get your pelvic diameter checked. Anything less than 11cm on the transverse means you’re not qualify to get pregnant. If you dare try, your VAGINA may be damaged during delivery.
11. DON’T WELCOME OVER-SIZED PENIS
A woman happen to meet his ex sex partner, a day to her wedding with another man. It happen that the sex partner was a carrier of AK 47 riffle called PENIS. The woman was complaining of pains. Unknown to him, he has just rupture a major artery in her VAGINA. Before proper diagnosis could be established, the lady has already bleed to death. Vaginal prolapse inclusive. If you must take a big PENIS, negotiate on the type of SEX position. Probably, missionary position can be welcomed.
