This is one topic I have been thinking for long to write but was too shy to write 😀 Whether you are married or not, you need to take care of your hygiene. Anyways, lets get on with it.
Pubic hair is actually a protection for the sensitive area but unfortunately, it also increases the unhygienic conditions. So, its best to get rid of it. Shaving is one of the easiest, painless and safest ways to get rid of the hair.
Brazilian wax is a good alternative if you have the courage to bear the pain. Avoid hair removal creams as they are very harsh on the skin and can cause itching or any other infection.
Make sure its dry
After a bath, when you don the undergarments, make sure that the area is entirely dry. Also, whenever you use the wash room, you can take care that to let the area be dry and undergarments do not get wet. Panty liners are a good choice if you have the issue of discharge.
Occasionally, when you are at home, especially at night, its a good idea to go without the undergarments. That helps with keeping the area clean and also ensures the area gets proper air circulation for an extended period.
Ah, the pain of periods…as if the days are not enough, its very very important to clean the area and keep on changing the pads to keep the area dry. Otherwise, it can breed bacteria. If you area itches, you can take it for a sure signal that it needs some care.
Do not use harsh soaps or body washes
These days many companies are coming up with medicated washes for the area specially. I haven’t used them yet but I guess handmade soaps can be gentle enough. But, its advised that only plain water is enough to keep the area clean.
Keep a check
If you see major discharge of yellow color, you need to go to a doctor. Also, any foul smell means your diet is probably getting more acidic or less water in the system or some other health issue. So, always keep a check on what happens to your body. Its a good way to determine the health of your body.
Wash your undergarments regularly
This is very important for people staying in hostels and PG’s. Always make sure that you launder your UG’s immediately. Leaving them without washing breeds bacteria and makes the area unclean as well.
