Ladies let’s be honest. Sometimes the love below isn’t so…well…lovely. Smells, discharge and itchiness can cause severe discomfort. And the fear of STD’s can make any level headed lady lose her mind. But before you get your panties in a bunch, you should stop to think about your daily life from your Vajayjay’s point of view.
If your vaj had a voice, what would it saying? Odds are, it’ll be screaming for mercy. Routinely, we get so caught up in pampering ourselves with luscious soaps and creams that we completely forget about the sensitivity of our precious rose. And while some of our favorite products sooth and relax our upper body, our nether region is sending out an SOS of help!
One key vag irritant is soap. Though we love the yummy scented soaps that leave us refreshed and revitalized in the shower, their heavy perfumes are a major cause of vaginal irritation. Even after one shower, your vag could develop a horrible, burning and itching feeling. And then later, an even nastier discharge. Soaps with anti-bacterial elements can also do the same damage.
Stay away from these types of soaps at all costs. And instead, opt for a glycerine soap such as the Gentle Glycerin soap bar by Van der Hagen. While these yummy soaps are super hydrating, they are also extremely gentle and are perfect for your delicate rose. Glycerine soaps are also known to promote elasticity for more supple skin and aids in healing wounds which makes it a perfect soap for the entire body.
Another vaginal villain could also be your laundry detergent. Though we all want clean clothes, the harsh chemicals of detergents can linger on your clothes post rinse, wreaking havoc on your vag. To avoid this, begin washing your lingerie in Woolite. Woolite has been around for years and is known far and wide to be one of the best and most gentle lingerie detergents around. Though many people completely forget about Woolite, you may want to remember it the next time you visit the store.
A third culprit, though we’d like to ignore it, is our panties. As sexy as they are, they often restrict the air flowing to our vag, causing it to suffocate. This is not good. Similar to an actual flower, our little delicate rose needs to breathe. And you must make sure that it does. Opt to wear a skirt or loose fitting pants and cotton panties at least three times a week. And don’t sleep in panties at all. Use this downtime as a way to give your vag much needed oxygen.
And finally, consider your toilet paper. Is it scented? Does it have color? If so, toss it! Though attractive, scented and colored toilet paper contain extremely harsh chemicals. None of which are vag friendly. While the TP may smell nice on the roll and in the bowl, your vag will start to smell terrible and burn with the itchies. Leave the scented stuff alone and opt for the basic boring old white stuff.
Of course these are just possible causes for your vaginal discomfort. So keep in mind that there could be other reasons for your specific problem. If you’ve changed your soap, detergent, panties and TP and are STILL having issues, take a quick trip to the doctor to see if there’s a greater issue going on.
