Use just water
The biggest myth is that the vagina should be a washed with a variety of shampoos, as it contributes to better hygiene and smell.

They call those products “necessary” but the reality is that most of these things are unnecessary. Every gynecologist will tell you that the continuous use of every day towels and tampons during menstruation is not good. In fact, it does not allow the vagina to “breathe” and contribute to the growth of bacteria and the formation of inflammation.
Tight pants cause yeast infections
Another thing that does not allow the vagina to “breathe” is tight pants. In general, it is better to choose clothes that are wider cut. Another thing that is not good for intimate health is unnatural materials, such as elastin or synthetic in the underwear. Therefore always choose cotton underwear.
Misbalance of moisture level
The vagina is moist by nature, but the amount of “moisture” depends on the period of the cycle, as well as on the state of sexual arousal. During the summer woman’s health is threatened because the swimwear that does not allow normal drying and creates a moist and warm environment. So on this period are frequent yeast and vaginal infections as well as itchy, burning sensation…
Probiotics are allies of the vagina
Avoiding dairy products such as yogurt is a big mistake if you are a woman. The good bacteria in yogurt, kefir or sour milk are the best allies of healthy and balanced bacterial system of the vagina. They should be in higher dose especially if you are treated with antibiotics.

They can irritate the genital area, so it is best to choose hypoallergenic detergent without fragrance for sensitive skin, and use it to wash your underwear on temperatures 60 ᵒC and higher.
