If you are a woman, there is an area of your body that needs your utmost attention. Proper care of your vagina can often improve the health of other areas of your body, such as preventing urinary tract infections. Here at Advanced Anti-Aging & Weight Loss, we encourage you to learn more about the benefits of vaginal care.
One of the things to keep in mind while cleaning your vulva and vaginal area is that you should only use water or products designed for cleaning this area of your body. Avoid using soaps as they can irritate your vaginal area, which could then lead to irritation and possible infections of your urinary tract. Your vagina is usually self-cleansing. Discharge is expelled so that bacteria is removed and to keep the area clean without using any products.
Pay attention to the color of the discharge that you have because it can sometimes indicate issues related to your vaginal health. Most of the discharge that you see is cervical cells being expelled from your body. Sometimes, this substance can appear sticky and can be yellow or white. If you see this kind of discharge, it’s usually because you’re in the middle of your menstrual cycle and when you’re the most fertile, which is when you want to try to get pregnant if you’re thinking about starting a family.
During your menstrual cycle, pay attention to any blood clots that you see. While small ones are normal, you want to alert your doctor if you notice anything larger than a quarter. Clots could be an indication that you have endometriosis or fibroids. These are issues that can be treated, but you need to talk to your doctor about them first. Vaginal care should always be a top priority.
