Your vagina can be just as moody as you are when you’re PMSing, and it isn’t on a particular monthly schedule to throw its tantrums. Just like every other part of your body, you need to pay attention to your vagina’s needs and make sure to take care of it with love and kindness. Here are some tips to keep your private place happy and healthy.

  1. Use lube. Vaginal dryness is more common than you think and happens at the worst times, like just as you’re getting ready for nookie. This is especially true for those who take antihistamines, hormonal birth control, or antidepressants. Use lube to keep things slick and sweet for good performance – and less irritation.
  2. Use a condom. Back to that moment you’re getting hot and heavy, if it’s someone new, make sure you’re using condoms. Not only is there the chance of pregnancy or catching an STI. You also have to worry about cleanliness and things that are more ‘spreadable’ than ‘contagious’. Think yeast and other fungus that you can’t necessarily see. It sounds gross, but it’s more common than you think.
  3. Cotton or commando. Wait, what? The best advice for your va-jay-jay is to not wear underwear? Yes, and no. The opposite problem from dryness is excess moisture, which literally happens to all women. So, when you’re at home, hang out sans panties to let things air out and stay dryer. And if you’re wearing panties, we’re not saying you have to go digging in Grandma’s underwear drawer. But make sure you have an adequate strip of cotton in the bottom, which will help absorb moisture and keep you aired out and dryer.
  4. Don’t be a douche – or use one. Seriously, it removes the healthy bacteria that keeps your vagina clean without your help. By taking away the ‘self cleaning’ effect, you put yourself at higher risk of STI, pelvic inflammatory disease, and other infections. So, leave the chemicals you would be introducing to your sensitive area on the shelf.
  5. Minimize antibiotics. Aside from creating a scenario where your body becomes immune to the effects of an antibiotic, overuse can lead to vaginal problems. That’s because the medication doesn’t kill a specific bacteria – it kills all bacteria, including the good stuff that leads to good vaginal health. Back to the previous tip: you’re at greater risk of infections and diseases. So, be careful, and only take antibiotics when necessary.
  6. Keep up the Kegels. Kegel exercises have multiple benefits, including better bladder and bowel control, stronger pelvic floor muscles (which in turn takes unnecessary stress off the pelvic organs), and leads to stronger orgasms. That should be reason enough right there – and it only takes 3 sets of 10 5-second holds a day, which is less than 3 minutes! You can do that anytime, anywhere.

Taking care of your vagina isn’t a difficult task, but it is an important one. Be sure you’re keeping your feminine health in mind with everything you do!
