This March, it’s all about the bold and fearless women that make life worth living. But between work or school, family and loads of responsibilities, most women find it hard to prioritize self-care as they age. That’s why in celebration of Women’s Month, we’ve compiled five simple reproductive health reminders that even the strongest alpha female should never forget.
Let’s talk about reproductive health. Vaginas are sensitive. Period! Some of the things women do on their areas maybe thought to do no harm, but the following can actually do otherwise. So time to freshen up your habits if you’ve been guilty of at least one of these culprits.
YOUR HAIR REMOVAL METHODS
Much as the hair in your nose, pubic hair in your area is there for a reason. Yes, that part most of you choose to remove every once in a while; it’s worth noting that hair down there helps with regulating body temperature, keeps bacteria from harming the vagina, literally protecting your area against friction—which can cause an injury—by providing some sort of a cushioning. But if you still wish to have it removed, doing it carelessly might cause inflammation, irritation, and even infection. Otherwise, either you go to a certified professional for a Brazilian wax or just accept the natural state and let your hair down.
YOUR TIGHT CLOTHES
Wearing skinny jeans and leggings is inevitable to some. Throw it out? Of course not! Regulate it perhaps. Wearing tight clothing down there irritates the vulva as there may be rough collision going on against the fabric. This also traps the heat and moist as well as restricts the air that flows through, leading to a major discomfort in the vagina.
Amazingly, vaginas are known to naturally clean themselves. This is why, ladies, you have the vaginal discharge and secretions. Special treatments or douching is just an invitation for infections as it disturbs the natural bacteria that are set up inside your vagina. Just let nature do its work, and don’t obsess about overdoing your clean slate.
YOUR VISITS TO THE OB-GYN IS INFREQUENT
On the subject of reproductive health, it is also important to note that annually visiting your obstetrician-gynecologist, or OB-GYN, is a must. Remember it’s important to always note that your trusted doctor know the precise status of your reproductive health. Some may think going to the OB-GYN might be intimidating, but the thing is, it wouldn’t really hurt to go through some screening tests to know what you’re doing right, what you’re doing wrong; and what you should do to further improve.
LOW-QUALITY SANITARY PADS
Satisfied with your current sanitary pad? You may be. But the thing is, most of the ladies out there still dread monthly periods, and while that’s reasonable, there may be something women can do to ease up the red days. Products such as Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Pads has multiple layers of protection designed to hold and to keep the liquid intact, preventing embarrassing leaks.
Jeunesse is not only built with anion strip; these pads are designed for a heavy gush and spill that also helps to lessen bacterial growth.
