Vaginal Health

At least 3 out of 4 women suffer with intimate discomforts from time to time.

Vaginitis is a term used to describe vaginal problems characterized by inflammation and irritation of the vagina and vulva.

It is important that a woman identifies what condition she is suffering from, to ensure that the correct treatment is applied. It is best to seek advice from your healthcare professional.

Top Tips for Vaginal Health

  • Wear comfortable underwear made from natural fibres (such as cotton or silk).
  • Avoid wearing tight pants or restrictive clothes.
  • Avoid using feminine deodorants or harsh soaps ‘down there’ as these can be irritating to the intimate area.
  • Limit the use of tampons or pads to the times when you need them and change regularly.
  • When you go to the toilet, always wipe from front to back, to avoid getting bacteria from the bowel into the vagina.
  • Avoid penetrative sex until you are sufficiently aroused, or use a suitable lubricant, to avoid damaging the delicate tissues.
  • Limit the amount of sugar in your diet.
  • Change out of wet clothing, especially swimsuits, as soon as you can.
  • Wash underwear in hot water.
  • Eat a well balanced diet to maintain a healthy body and boost your resistance to infections.
  • Some imbalances are linked with sexual activity, always use protection, especially with a new partner.
