The truth is, every female has her own signature scent, and if you have a sεxμal partner, your partner probably doesn’t mind it a bit. At the same time, if you’re feeling a little insecure, then it won’t hurt to make sure that you’re covering all of the bases when you wash your lady part. You deserve to feel clean and confident.
Method 1 of 2: Daily Washing Routine
1. Lather up a washcloth with some mild natural soap and water. Avoid using soaps with heavy perfumes, which may irritate the sensitive skin around your lady part.
2. Clean the folds around your cl!toris. Use your fingers to pull your l’ab!a away from your c’l!toris. Gently scrub the skin on both sides of your c’l!toris with the washcloth.
3. Wash your vμlva and your vag!nal opening. Also, scrub around your bikini line.
4. Scrub your perineum. The perineum is the area between your vag!na and your anμs.
5. Wash your a.nal area last. Keep your washcloth from touching your vag!nal area after you’ve washed your anμs. Doing this will ensure that you don’t drag rectal germs toward your vag!nal area. These germs can cause you to get urinary tract infections.
6. Wash your lady part at least once per day. If you have s’εx, you may want to wash it a second time to feel fresh and clean, although washing after s’εx will not prevent pregnancy on its own.
Method 2 of 2: Keeping Yourself Smelling Fresh
1. Trim, wax or shave your pμbic hair. Thick pμbic hair can cause you to sweat down below, which may make you have some issues with odor.
2. Stay clean during your period. Change your pad or your tampon frequently, according to the directions on the package. If you’re worried about how you smell when you’re having your period, you can wash your lady part 2 or 3 times a day.
3. Wear cotton underwear. Breathable fabric helps to prevent vag!nal odor.
4. Try a reusable pantyliner. The idea of reusing and washing your pantyliners may seem strange at first, but the cotton will help your lady part to breath while absorbing any excess discharge. If you like the way they make you feel, you can graduate to reusable cotton menstrual pads or menstrual cups.
5. Bathe as part of your f.orεplay. So are you worried that your partner won’t like your scent? Take a shower or a stεamy bath before you have s’εx. Let your partner wash your lady part for you. Who knows? It might lead to all kinds of fun.
- If you’re concerned about a persistent, strong odor in your vag!nal area, visit your gynecologist. Your gynecologist can test you for an infection and can prescribe an appropriate medication or topical cream if you need one. You can also talk to your gynecologist if you’re worried about odor and cleanliness.
- To prevent odor, make sure that you wipe the area around your cl!toris with toilet tissue every time you urinate. Urine and vag!nal secretions can accumulate in this area and can give you that not-so-fresh feeling.
- Heavy perfume is a no-go!
- V’ag!nas aren’t meant to smell like baby powder or fields of flowers. If you’re really worried about how you smell, it’s okay to talk to your partner about it. You’ll probably find out that everything is fine. And if your clean scent is a turnoff, maybe you need a new partner.
- Wash with clean water every time you go to the bathroom.
- Use baby powder in the morning and at night. It helps prevent sweating in your vag!nal area.
- Always wipe front to back to prevent bacteria from getting into your lady part.
- Be gentle! It’s a very fragile area and you don’t want to get a cut or an infection.
- Be careful when washing your lady part, its not a race. Don’t rush. Take your time because you don’t want to irritate your skin.
- If you really think your lady part is sick, then call a doctor so they can tell you if it is sick or not.
- Avoid washing inside your lady part. You don’t want to upset the pH balance of your vag!nal walls.
- Also, you don’t want to wash away all of your vag!nal secretions because they are nature’s cleaning mechanism for your lady part.
- Skip douches and feminine deodorant sprays. Douches can upset the natural bacterial balance in your lady part. Also, both douches and feminine sprays can irritate the sensitive skin in your vag!nal area.
