5 Things You Need to Know About Your Vagina

With all the things we have to think about on a daily basis the last thing we want to worry about is what is happening down there. Here are some tips to help keep your hoohoo healthy.

  1. It benefits from exercise.  Just like you do sit-ups to workout your abs, it’s beneficial to workout the muscles in your vagina.  Besides giving you a tighter grip during sex, it also may make it easier to climax. Here’s how you exercise your vagina:  Clamp down as if you’re stopping your urine flow, hold for 10 seconds, then release. Do 3 sets of 15 a day.

2. It’s just one part of your down-there region. Most of us use the word vagina to refer to our private parts. But technically, the term describes only the narrow canal that runs inside your body from the vulva (the visible area that includes the inner and outer labia, clitoris, and perineum) to the cervix (the lower portion of the uterus).

If you smell something “off”, it might mean that you are off balance or you have an infection. Over cleansing your hoohoo removes all the goodness Mother Nature put down there and added fragrance simply provides another molecule for bacteria to grow on. Use a product that is fragrance free like  and see your doctor if a funky odor persists.

3. Cleansers with fragrances might make it smell worse. If you smell something “off”, it might mean that you are off balance or you have an infection. Over cleansing your hoohoo removes all the goodness Mother Nature put down there and added fragrance simply provides another molecule for bacteria to grow on. Use a product that is fragrance free like healthy hoohoo and see your doctor if a funky odor persists.

4. Wear cotton underwear. Synthetic fabrics can cause irritation to your vagina. Cotton is a much friendlier fabric for your nether regions and let’s “her” breathe.

5. Don’t clean hoohoo with soap. Using soap, no matter how mild and natural, can disrupt your vagina’s pH level (which is naturally acidic) and cause irritation and discomfort. The vagina is a self-cleaning part of the body that does a great job at keeping things regulated.

  • This is so interesting! I do kegel exercises all the time because it’s so important to keep those muscles down there strong. Is baby soap OK to use?? That’s what I generally cleanse with and I didn’t realize that even that could disrupt my vag’s pH levels.
