Hey ladies! Welcome to Jamm Dropping Jewels. In this weeks session I'm bringing to you, a few tips on how to keep your "V" healthy. Now, I'm sure we've all struggled with issues such as dryness, yeast infections and fluctuating PH balance. But these tips were designed to help you along your journey towards a more normal and fresh "V". Before I begin, I need to remind you that I am not a medical professional. However, everything that's listed are things I've personally utilized and have worked for me. If you are experiencing symptoms that have lasted for long periods of time and seem to be getting worse, please contact a physician. Now, let's get started.
1. Proper Hygeine It's a good idea to avoid perfumed soaps and gels. These can effect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina and cause irritation. I recommend "Queen V soap bar." It is design just for the vagina. Also, it is recommended to stay away for using a towels when washing.
2. Shaving vs Waxing There are pros and cons to both shaving and waxing your pubic hair. If you prefer to shave, make sure you use a clean razor every time to prevent any infection. Waxing is also based on your preference. Just be aware of who you allow to wax you. Always do your research before making an appointment. And for the ladies who choose not to remove their pubic hair, there's nothing wrong with that either. It actually could be the healthier method. Pubic hair provides a cushion against friction that can cause skin abrasion and injury; protection from bacteria and other unwanted pathogens. So what ever your preference may be, just be sure to so it all with caution.
3. Off Balance You PH balance can be thrown off by a number of factors. Sex, semen, menstruation, vaginal washes and wipes, certain medications, and even stress are common triggers. These triggers can raises your PH levels, making it easier for non beneficial bacteria and yeast infections to settle in and cause infections. To prevent this problem, I recommend a daily dose of a vaginal probiotic. There are several on the market. Do your research and choose one that works for you.
4. Stay Stress Free Stress and anxiety can have a negative effect on your body and can cause prolonged yeast infections. Although stress is something that is difficult to avoid, the goal is to live with the least amount of stress as possible.
