Tips

  • Always wipe front to back to prevent bacteria from getting into your vagina.
  • Be gentle! It's a very fragile area and you don't want to get a cut or an infection.
  • Be careful when washing your vagina, its not a race. Don't rush. Take your time because you don't want to irritate your skin.
  • If you're concerned about a persistent, strong odor in your vaginal area, visit your gynecologist. Your gynecologist can test you for an infection and can prescribe an appropriate medication or topical cream if you need one. You can also talk to your gynecologist if you're worried about odor and cleanliness.
  • To prevent odor, make sure that you wipe the area around your clitoris with toilet tissue every time you urinate. Urine and vaginal secretions can accumulate in this area and can give you that not-so-fresh feeling.
  • Heavy perfume is a no-go!
  • Vaginas aren't meant to smell like baby powder or fields of flowers. If you're really worried about how you smell, it's okay to talk to your partner about it. You'll probably find out that everything is fine. And if your clean scent is a turnoff, maybe you need a new partner.
  • Wash with clean water everytime you go to the bathroom.

Warnings

  • Avoid washing inside your vagina. You don't want to upset the pH balance of your vaginal walls. Also, you don't want to wash away all of your vaginal secretions because they are nature's cleaning mechanism for your vagina.
  • Skip douches and feminine deodorant sprays. Douches can upset the natural bacterial balance in your vagina. Also, both douches and feminine sprays can irritate the sensitive skin in your vaginal area.
