Vaginal Health - Washing

It's a good idea to avoid perfumed soaps, gels and antiseptics as these can affect the healthy balance of bacteria and pH levels in the vagina, and cause irritation. Use plain, un-perfumed soaps to gently wash the area around your vagina (the vulva) every day. A healthy vagina is able to clean itself inside your body with its own natural vaginal secretions and bacteria.
