WHAT IS A VAGINA?
A vagina is also known as the birth canal for the bearing of children. The vagina connects with the cervix and, through that, the uterus. The ovaries, located on either side of the uterus, release eggs in fertile people.
These eggs travel down the Fallopian tubes to the uterus, where in conception, they meet up with sperm for fertilization and implant along the uterine wall. When fertilization doesn’t happen, menstruation does.
Until the egg is released, the uterus builds up extra lining to provide the most hospitable environment possible for a fertilized egg. When an egg isn’t fertilized, though, this lining has to go somewhere. So it exits the body during your period until menopause and many other factors affect menstruation.
WHAT IS A VULVA?
The vulva is the outside portion of the female genitals, the part you can see. It consists of the Mons pubis, clitoris, urethra, labia majora, and labia minora. The labia majora is the outer fold of the genitals, while the labia minora is the inner fold. These parts help protect the clitoris, which is extremely sensitive.
Have you ever wondered what exactly is true, should I wash my vagina with a soap or water or something else?
Here is your answer.
YES, the Vagina is self-cleaning, but the vulva the external part of your genitals, which includes the labia needs to be washed. Bacteria and smegma (a buildup of oils and dead skin) can hide in the folds of your vulva, and you’ll want to clear it out from time to time. But chances are, you are probably not cleaning your Vulva well
People use “Vulva” and “Vagina” interchangeably. The “Vagina” and “Vulva” are two very different things. Since the vulva is the outside portion of the female genitals, it has to be washed but not with any type of soap that contains harmful chemicals.
LET’S TALK ABOUT SOAPS.
Soap we all know is an important cleaning agent but there are certain parts of our body that soap should not be used on – *the face and the female intimate area‼️ Why? Soap throws off balance what is called the pH level.
Balanced pH levels are key for health and good intimate care, but what is it and how does it affect our body. Check out 5 facts about pH, all women should know. At this point, you’ll agree with me that: Water is not enough! Soap is not an Option!! You as a lady should get all round pH balance💯
How do I keep down there fresh?
Bathing or showering daily, especially after exercise, is the best way to stay fresh. Stick with a Deodorizing Cleansing Intimate Gel that contains a natural odor inhibitor and intensively moisturizing Panthenol, and a Natural Lactic Acid to maintain the balance of flora so as to help provide better protection.
When you’re rinsing off, only focus on washing the vulva since the inner part of your vagina naturally cleanses itself.
