1. GO TO TOILET AFTER INTERCOURSE: Pee within an hour of having intercourse, which helps to flush out your private part, and of course, wipe from front to back to avoid faecal contamination.
2. AVOID HOT BATH/TUB SHOWER: A hot bath/tub shower can make you susceptible to more infection
3. DRINK ENOUGH WATER: Drink a glass or two of water right after intercourse, it will hydrate you and help flush pesky UTI-causing bacteria from your bladder.
4. EAT FOOD THAT IS RICH IN PROBIOTIC:
I know those chocolate chip cookies in the jar look tempting, but we advise you to choose your snack wisely. Your best option is fermented foods such as yogurt for instance. Eating these as a snack can restock good bacteria so that you don’t get yeast infections.
5. AVOID SOAP DOWN THERE: Not just after intercourse (although your V is particularly sensitive then), but always: don’t wash with soap. Your nether region is a self-cleansing organism and using soaps, douches or other products can interfere with its delicate pH levels. Soap can also lead to irritation and dryness.
6. DITCH THE CUTE LINGERIES. WEAR COTTON UNDER WEARS: Most types of lingerie/pants are made from non-breathable fabrics like nylon or polyester. Put them on and you’re creating the perfect environment for germs to grow. Remember our V is a warm and moist place. So wear cotton under wears.
7. AVOID WET WIPES: While it might be appealing to swipe yourself clean using wet wipes, the chemicals and fragrances can irritate your sensitive genital area, especially after intercourse. If you have to clean use plain water.
8. BLOW DRYING YOUR NETHER REGIONS/VAGINA: It is very effective according to some doctors, although you must be careful. Blow drying is especially effective for women prone to UTIs and mycosis.
*Before blow drying, wash the your V with warm water. Use cold air setting to dry the area. Make sure you don’t overdo it and ensure the innermost V remains moist.
That's the way to keeping your vagina clean and safe
