I woke up this morning to the following text message:
“My Vagina..smells like Wet dog again.”
This isn’t the first time my friend has texted me about her foul smelling pussy. I don’t understand why people assume I have all the answers but I have been told I am a compendium of information, both useful and useless. Let me start off with a disclaimer for the following. I am NOT a doctor and I am not giving medical advice this is simply a friend helping out another friend because apparently I have the best smelling vagina out there (I don’t really know if that’s true but this isn’t the first time someone has texted me about help with their lower region). So..My Dear friend, this is for you.
Daily Showers or at least “washings” are a MUST
I cannot fathum how many girls I met that don’t shower daily, or at least clean themselves. Seriously people, this is the #1 mistake. Your body sweats, and just like males, our gentials sweat. Sweaty gentials minus shower = foul smell. Especially because your vagina is an orifice, it leads to INSIDE your body – which doesn’t smell all that pleasant. If you can’t take 15 minutes out of your day to shower, at least take two minutes out of your day to take your panties off and splash some water on your folds! I use Summer’s Eves Daily Wash, when I’m in a rush but just plain water will help keep you clean.
Change your Panties! and Pay attention to what you wear
It is a HUGE…HUGE no-no to not change your undies everyday. This is acceptable for men (I don’t think it is but many do) because they’re balls aren’t open to the inside of their bodies and they are not constatnly moist and flowing juices on the outside. So change your undies every day. What do I do? I change my undies in the morning, and at night before I go to bed. Why? Because I wear Thongs, G-strings etc. Cotton undies are the way to go, they make cotton thongs at Victoria’s Secret and just about everywhere else find them. Spandex, Silk, etc doesn’t help your body breath which means all the sweat and juices you’re flowing are collecting bacteria in your undies…mmm bacteria filled panties, just what you want right? Didn’t think so. Cotton helps your body breath. DO NOT sleep with thongs on! They are meant to be tight and even if they are cotton restrict your body from breathing. Throw on a cute pair of Boy shorts or Cheekies at night.
Probiotics are a Woman’s best friend
proibotic pills (I presonally like RePhresh Pro-B) help balance out the bacteria and yeast the vagina natrually carries. Sometimes your body just produces way too much of either which often leads to Urinary Tract Infections or Yeast Infections (blegh) – Probiotics help your body balance it out so you’re not making too much of either. THey also neutralize the any kind of odor you have. I’ve been told that My lower region, smells and tastes like nothing or is sometimes a bit sweet (I’m not sure if thats a good thing) and i say, Thank You Probitotic I love you. If you don’t want to spend $40 a month for a pack of pills, Yogurts such as Activia if you eat 2 a day, work in simular ways.
Don’t Douche..ya Douche..
Your body NEEDS bacteria. Douche’s kill ALL the bacteria in your vagina, both good and bad, which leaves you SOOO prone to infections it’s not even funny. The last thing you need is to take a desperate act of douching your body and finding out 3 days later that you have a UTI and a Yeast infection because you’re dumbass decided to kill all the bacteria in your vagina. If you want to “throughly” Clean yourself, and I’m just saying this as a last act of desperation because honestly the top three ideas should lead to a nice vagina, take a cup of water (8oz) and 1 TEASPOON of Vinergar and mix them together, clean yourself off in the tub or toilet, and then shower off, DO NOT, I Repeat, DO NOT just wash off with this and pull your panties up, you will smell like vinegar all day.
That’s it. It’s not a huge secret of how to keep your body clean.
