Vaginal health is serious, and women need to avoid certain mistakes that could lead to severe complications.
Periods are not your favorite guests–you know it. Maintaining good vaginal health is the key and thus, it's suggested to keep it healthy down there – to avoid making it even messier.
Period Mistake #1 Cleaning Vagina with Soap and Shower Gels
Women want to do away with the period odor because, well, who does not want to feel fresh and clean? Remember, period blood may be smelly but cleaning it with soaps, shower gels and intimate washes worsens the case.
The acidic pH of your vagina maintains a healthy balance between good and bad bacteria. This, when disturbed, causes vaginal irritation, bacterial vaginosis, burning during urination, fishy vaginal odor due to excess white discharge and more. Again, this demands more cleaning than you started with.
Your vagina has a self-cleaning system, and the acidic pH keeps the infections away. To clean the period blood, gently spray water on your vagina to wash the sticking blood– you need nothing else, ever.
Period Mistake #2 Using Scented Sanitary Products
Scented sanitary napkins, tampons, pads, or anything scented that you use for the vagina spoils your vaginal health. Scents attract bacterial infections. The direct contact of scented chemicals with your skin often leads to irritation, redness, allergies, and reactions.
Scented napkins come with odor neutralizing chemicals that do more harm than good. It is recommended to steer clear of scented sanitary napkins or products during periods.
Period Mistake #3 Prolonged Wearing Of Sanitary Napkins And Tampons
Prolonged use of sanitary napkins, tampons or menstrual cups can result in Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). This condition arises when you do not change your pad or tampon for too long. The maximum time to wear a single sanitary napkin or tampon is 6-8 hours. Beyond that, your sanitary pad or tampon becomes home to unwanted bacterial breeding– which often starts with a bad smell.
