Daily Routines and Practices for Better Feminine Health

Daily Routines and Practices for Better Feminine Health

Even the most health-conscious women may forget to take
their feminine health into account. However, the female reproductive system is
an integral part of a woman’s body that is responsible for the production of
many hormones. Taking care of your feminine health is just as important as
taking care of the rest of your body. Learning this, you may wonder what you
can do to ensure your feminine health and wellness. Truthfully, many of the
things you can do to ensure your overall health are also good for your feminine
health as well.

Some women may think that cleaning the vagina is one way to
ensure feminine health. However, many cleansing products designed for women
(e.g. douches) may actually disrupt the pH of the vagina, causing more harm
than good. Other scented products, like tampons or creams, can also have the
same negative effects. The vagina has its own ecosystem, and even minor changes
can throw off the balance. If you want to ensure the health of your vagina day
to day, avoid those products. Remember, the vagina is a self-cleaning organ,
and many products that may seemingly be good for the vagina may not be
beneficial at all. Along these same lines, practice good hygiene; wear clean
clothes and underwear, wipe and clean properly, bathe regularly, and change
sanitary napkins and tampons regularly.

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is not only
good for your overall health, but for your female health as well. Exercise has
shown to improve the symptoms
of menstrual cramps and PMS, and a good diet helps to maintain a
healthy weight which in turns helps to keep your cycle regular and healthy.
Taking probiotics like supplements or even yogurt can also help maintain good
vaginal health.

Practicing safe sex is
also an important part of keeping up your female health, because safe sexual
practices protect you from harmful STDs. If you think you have an infection,
seek medical attention. This not only applies to STDs, but any infection that can
affect the female reproductive organs. Other infections, like yeast infections
and bacterial vaginosis, can also cause feminine health to decline. However,
regular checkups with your OB/GYN is also part of a good feminine health
routine, even if you do not think you have an infection. Preventative care
ensures you are maintaining good health, and your doctor can also give you more
advice and answer any questions you may have about feminine health.

By practicing these healthy habits, you can avoid many
feminine annoyances and complications, like rashes and infections. Really, most
of the advice your doctor would give you about maintaining overall health
applies to feminine health as well. Regular checkups ensure that you are doing
the right thing for your body and can help to prevent other infections from
occurring. While maintaining your feminine health is not an overcomplicated
process, feel free to discuss
your health and how you can maintain it with your doctor.
