Kourtney and Kim Kardashian aren’t the only ones in pursuit of a sweeter scent. While the rest of us may not make it a contest, it’s important to understand ways to stay sweet down below. Here are a few do’s and don’ts to prevent diseases and keep your va-jay-jay smiling.
1. Do let her breathe
Did you know that sleeping in the buff is beneficial to your vaginal health? Your favorite nylon and lace panties could be the culprit of many vaginal issues. It’s important to let her breathe; a moist environment is a breading ground for bacterial growth. And if sleeping in the nude isn’t an option, slip into comfortable cotton underwear.
Instead of guzzling sugary fruit juice when you want to feel fresh, incorporate real fruits and probiotics into your everyday diet. Probiotics produce enzymes necessary to keep a peaceful balance of good and bad bacterias in your body. If you suffer from yeast infections, consider working yogurt, pickles and dark chocolate into your regime.
It may be a good idea to smell like warm vanilla sugar, but spritzing your favorite scent down there could turn into BIG problems. Avoid irritating your va-jay-jay and not use perfumes and scented tampons and pads.
When your body doesn’t seem quite right don’t run to google! Get on the phone and consult your OBGYN about alarming symptoms. Your biggest friend in vaginal health is your trusted health care professional. Getting advice from your girlfriends or the internet can be very dangerous and harmful to your overall health.
If you’re working hard to maintain your health, shouldn’t you demand the same from your partner? Address any concerns you have with your doctor and your boo. Join your lover at the doctor’s office for STI screenings and share your results.
