Every­one knows that a wom­an’s health depends on many fac­tors. Com­pli­ance with the rules of inti­mate hygiene is one of the con­di­tions nec­es­sary for a woman to observe in order to main­tain health.

For many women, preg­nan­cy is a prob­lem. Alas, the neg­a­tive impact of the envi­ron­ment on wom­en’s health often leads to infer­til­i­ty, as well as the repro­duc­tion of var­i­ous dis­eases that have a sig­nif­i­cant impact on the con­cep­tion of a baby.

It is worth not­ing that the inti­mate organs of any woman have a rather del­i­cate struc­ture, and are also very vul­ner­a­ble. The uter­ine cav­i­ty is right­ful­ly con­sid­ered ster­ile, and any woman knows what its role in con­cep­tion is.

In the case of pen­e­tra­tion of infec­tion and microbes into the uter­ine cav­i­ty, the process of dis­eases invol­un­tar­i­ly begins to devel­op, which is quite dif­fi­cult to get rid of. It is nec­es­sary to fol­low the rules of hygiene to pre­vent the for­ma­tion of var­i­ous kinds of dis­eases.

What is the uniqueness of the intimate zone of a woman?

The inti­mate zone of every woman is, first of all, a unique ecosys­tem inhab­it­ed by more than 100 species of microor­gan­isms. They form the nor­mal vagi­nal flo­ra. On top of that, this ecosys­tem has an excep­tion­al abil­i­ty to keep clean, main­tain a healthy acid-base bal­ance.

Among the bac­te­ria, the pres­ence of lac­to­bacil­li is very impor­tant, which pro­duce lac­tic acid and main­tain the phys­i­o­log­i­cal pH of the vagi­na. Thanks to them, a hos­tile envi­ron­ment is cre­at­ed for dan­ger­ous microor­gan­isms, pre­vent­ing their growth and repro­duc­tion.

What is vaginal pH?

The lev­el of acid-base bal­ance of the vagi­na is 3.8 — 4.4. It is this lev­el that pro­vides an opti­mal envi­ron­ment in the vagi­na for “ben­e­fi­cial” bac­te­ria and does not lead to patho­log­i­cal changes.

This bar­ri­er sup­ports prop­er wom­en’s health.

If the pH of the vagi­na increas­es (shift of the pH index to the alka­line side), then the qual­i­ty or quan­ti­ty of lac­to­bacil­li may drop. This leads to the mul­ti­pli­ca­tion of path­o­gen­ic microflo­ra.

The imbal­ance, in turn, caus­es such patho­log­i­cal con­di­tions as an infec­tious non-inflam­ma­to­ry dis­ease of the vagi­na and thrush with numer­ous unpleas­ant sen­sa­tions in the vagi­nal area (itch­ing, burn­ing, patho­log­i­cal dis­charge, dry skin, unpleas­ant odor).

Miko Lavender Oil

A lot of pos­i­tive rec­om­men­da­tions have earned oil for inti­mate hygiene “Laven­der” from the com­pa­ny MiKo. The man­u­fac­tur­er claims that it does not use harm­ful sub­stances in the process of cre­at­ing prod­ucts. Nat­ur­al ingre­di­ents are select­ed by experts very care­ful­ly.

One of the pop­u­lar prod­ucts of this brand is inti­mate oil. The com­po­si­tion of the prod­uct includes hydrophilic oil, laven­der oil, olive oil, tamanu and tea tree oil. The action of these com­po­nents is enhanced by extracts of chamomile, oak bark, sage, cal­en­du­la and wal­nut.

The cos­met­ic prod­uct allows you to gen­tly clean the inti­mate parts of the body, main­tain the cor­rect lev­el of acid­i­ty and elim­i­nate dis­com­fort in the form of itch­ing and burn­ing. The tool has a bac­te­ri­ci­dal and anti-inflam­ma­to­ry effect.

silent problem

So, one of the most com­mon com­plaints in women with a vio­la­tion of pH is dry­ness in the vagi­nal area. This prob­lem is faced by every­one, regard­less of age.

Vagi­nal dry­ness may seem like a minor annoy­ance, but in real­i­ty, it can seri­ous­ly reduce a wom­an’s qual­i­ty of life and affect a wom­an’s per­son­al rela­tion­ships.

inti­mate hygiene

A woman begins to be dis­turbed by burn­ing, itch­ing, exces­sive sen­si­tiv­i­ty and vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty, dis­com­fort dur­ing inter­course.

There are a num­ber of effec­tive meth­ods of treat­ment, thanks to which this prob­lem can be solved.

One of the main ones is to choose the right inti­mate hygiene prod­uct.

Properties of creams, ointments

Almost all creams and oint­ments for inti­mate hygiene con­tain lac­tic acid and antibac­te­r­i­al agents. They are added to main­tain nor­mal pH in the inti­mate area. Creams are not designed to cleanse the gen­i­tals, they solve many oth­er prob­lems.

There are creams to relieve irri­ta­tion, get rid of itch­ing, to mois­tur­ize inti­mate places. Many of them pro­tect against bac­te­ria, so they can be applied before vis­it­ing the pool.

Itch­ing in the vagi­na often spoils the mood for many. Before using the cream, it is nec­es­sary to estab­lish the cause of the itch­ing. It could be:

  • uncom­fort­able clothes made of syn­thet­ic fab­rics;
  • aller­gic rash­es;
  • vene­re­al dis­eases;
  • dys­bac­te­rio­sis or oth­er vio­la­tions of the microflo­ra of the vagi­na;
  • dia­betes or oth­er dis­eases.

If you start using creams for itch­ing on your own, with­out find­ing out the rea­sons for its occur­rence, then you can start the dis­ease. That’s why it is advis­able to use the funds after con­sult­ing a doc­tor. If there are no alarm­ing signs of the dis­ease, then a prop­er­ly select­ed drug will help get rid of itch­ing. Some creams elim­i­nate irri­ta­tion after inter­course.

Soothing and stimulating gels

After remov­ing unwant­ed veg­e­ta­tion in the vagi­nal area, many women face the prob­lem of skin irri­ta­tion and red­ness. To stim­u­late the process of regen­er­a­tion of the skin, to have an anti­sep­tic effect will help means with a calm­ing effect.

The com­po­si­tion of such cos­met­ics usu­al­ly con­tains sea buck­thorn oil, rose­mary, aloe vera extract, allan­toin. These creams have a del­i­cate struc­ture, are quick­ly absorbed into the skin, do not leave marks on the linen. You can use these sooth­ing and mois­tur­iz­ing prod­ucts dai­ly.

Soothing and stimulating intimate gels

Among the prod­ucts for the inti­mate sphere, there are creams that raise the sex­u­al tone. They con­tain sub­stances such as san­dal­wood, ylang-ylang, rose­mary, gin­ger, patchouli, which increase sen­si­tiv­i­ty, sex­u­al desire. They also have antibac­te­r­i­al prop­er­ties and help pre­vent inflam­ma­tion.

Preparations for moisturizing the vagina

One of the caus­es of vagi­nal dry­ness is dishormon­al dis­or­ders of the gen­i­tal organs. This is observed with a decrease in the amount of hor­mones, dys­bac­te­rio­sis, inflam­ma­to­ry process­es, and the use of cer­tain con­tra­cep­tive drugs. Dry vagi­na, dis­com­fort dur­ing sex­u­al inter­course cause con­cern not only to the woman, but also to her part­ner.

There are mois­tur­iz­ers for mod­er­ate to severe vagi­nal dry­ness.

If dishormon­al dis­or­ders are the cause, then the doc­tor should select the cream, sup­ple­ment­ing it with hor­mon­al drugs. With nor­mal dry­ness, not caused by dis­tur­bances in the body, the cream can be select­ed inde­pen­dent­ly. It is best to use a lubri­cant for these pur­pos­es. It helps to restore the thinned walls of the vagi­na, elim­i­nate micro­c­racks. Lubri­cants have a bal­anced com­po­si­tion, which includes veg­etable oils and fats.

Many reme­dies can also be used by a wom­an’s sex part­ner. Mois­tur­iz­ing and lubri­cat­ing with antibac­te­r­i­al drugs will help to avoid unpleas­ant con­se­quences. You need to know that many creams and gels destroy latex, and this reduces the con­tra­cep­tive effect.

What can affect the vaginal pH shift?

The pH of the vagi­na varies between dif­fer­ent stages of a wom­an’s life cycle.

In girls, the pH before puber­ty is 7.0.

In a woman of repro­duc­tive age, each phase also has its own pH: dur­ing the men­stru­al phase, the pH is 6.8 — 7.2, dur­ing the pro­lif­er­a­tive phase — 4.0 — 5.0, dur­ing the secre­to­ry phase — 3.8 — 4.2.

Intimate hygiene in women

Inti­mate hygiene in women

The pH shift can also be caused by com­mon dai­ly events:

  • Sex­u­al inter­course: semen has a pH of 7.1 to 8
  • Hygiene prod­ucts: soap may have a pH greater than 8
  • Diet and exer­cise
  • Tam­pons can con­tribute to the prob­lem, espe­cial­ly if you “for­got” your tam­pon and left it on for too long.”
  • Injury (eg, chaf­ing from tight cloth­ing)
  • Endocrino­log­i­cal dis­eases (dia­betes, thy­roid dis­ease).
  • The use of broad-spec­trum antibi­otics
  • Con­doms, hor­mon­al prepa­ra­tions.
  • Improp­er inti­mate hygiene.

Myth #4: “I’ll take a pill and my intimate discomfort will go away.”

A huge num­ber of women believe that the vio­la­tion of the nor­mal bal­ance of microflo­ra (dys­bio­sis) of the inti­mate sphere, which is often man­i­fest­ed by dis­com­fort, dis­charge with a repul­sive odor, can be cured with­out pro­fes­sion­al help6.

Hav­ing no desire or time to vis­it a doc­tor, they take drugs on their own in the hope of quick­ly get­ting rid of the dis­ease that wor­ries them, how­ev­er, as a result, such patients still get to the doc­tor, but with much more severe diag­noses. If you have dis­turb­ing symp­toms, dis­charge, itch­ing or burn­ing of the gen­i­tals, in no case should you self-med­icate. Each such case requires exam­i­na­tion and exam­i­na­tion by a doc­tor, and only he can choose the right therapy7.

Bad hygiene is worse than no hygiene

The inti­mate area has many fea­tures. Thanks to these fea­tures of the female body, many spe­cial per­son­al hygiene prod­ucts have been devel­oped: from inti­mate gel for women to creams. And it is impor­tant to remem­ber this when choos­ing prod­ucts for the care of the inti­mate area.

Prob­lems of inti­mate hygiene

Most dis­eases in a woman devel­op pre­cise­ly because of improp­er care for the inti­mate area. The wrong choice of inti­mate hygiene prod­ucts can upset the bal­ance of the vagi­nal flo­ra and endan­ger wom­en’s health, includ­ing their repro­duc­tive func­tion.

Ensur­ing the cor­rect acidic pH is a key issue when choos­ing prod­ucts for women.

Gyne­col­o­gist Vitaly Rymarenko about the pecu­liar­i­ties of female inti­mate hygiene. Source — All will be well

Scent­ed soap or ordi­nary body gel with a high pH lev­el (5–5.5) with reg­u­lar use eas­i­ly dis­turbs the acid-base bal­ance of the vagi­na. A high (alka­line) pH lev­el dam­ages the pro­tec­tive bar­ri­er on the sur­face of the skin and caus­es the death of lac­to­bacil­li. Which com­pro­mis­es the healthy vagi­nal ecosys­tem.

You need to under­stand that soap is designed for skin, the pH of which is 5.5.

Cleanliness can cause disease

We are all taught from child­hood that clean­li­ness and care­ful per­son­al care will help to avoid ill­ness. There­fore, many women find it nor­mal and ben­e­fi­cial to cleanse the gen­i­tals dai­ly with soap. But they do not take into account that this deter­gent can cause seri­ous prob­lems, such as:

  • Irri­ta­tions. A large amount of alka­li in soap dries out the mucous mem­brane of the gen­i­tal organs.
  • Inflam­ma­to­ry dis­eases. In over­dried mucosa, micro­c­racks eas­i­ly occur. Path­o­gen­ic bac­te­ria often pen­e­trate into them, pro­vok­ing the devel­op­ment of inflam­ma­tion.
  • Ede­ma and itch­ing. The alka­li in the com­po­si­tion of the soap not only cleans­es the skin, but also kills all the ben­e­fi­cial microflo­ra, chang­ing the lev­el of acid­i­ty on the sur­face of the mucous mem­branes. This leads to the destruc­tion of the body’s nat­ur­al defens­es and opens access to the body of path­o­gen­ic microflo­ra.

You can avoid all these trou­bles by lim­it­ing the use of soap. But how do you cleanse your skin? You can use a spe­cial gel that cleans­es the skin and mucous mem­branes of inti­mate organs gen­tly, with­out overdry­ing them with­out caus­ing irri­ta­tion.

How to choose an intimate hygiene gel

The line of inti­mate hygiene prod­ucts is specif­i­cal­ly designed to main­tain a healthy vagi­nal pH, has pro­tec­tive and anti-inflam­ma­to­ry activ­i­ty, mois­tur­izes the vagi­nal mucosa, and accel­er­ates the heal­ing of micro­c­racks in the vagi­nal mucosa.

Inti­mate hygiene — prod­ucts

The gold­en mean in this case will be a nat­ur­al prod­uct that does not con­tain soap or harsh deter­gents, fra­grances, alco­hol, dyes and preser­v­a­tives.

Expert opin­ion

The more in har­mo­ny with nature the heal­ing of dis­eases that occur to the human race, the greater suc­cess from med­ical sci­ence and the greater ben­e­fit from the med­i­cines used can hence­forth be expect­ed.

Obste­tri­cian-gyne­col­o­gist Nestor Ambodik-Mak­si­movich

1. A good vagi­nal inti­mate gel should have a bal­anced pH index close to the vagi­na. An alter­na­tive choice is the Gyno­com­fort inti­mate hygiene gel, whose pH is 4.2.

It not only main­tains the acidic envi­ron­ment of the vagi­na, but also helps to strength­en the pH index. And even in the case when there is a shift towards an alka­line envi­ron­ment (men­stru­a­tion, preg­nan­cy, menopause, stress, pro­longed use of con­tra­cep­tives).

Due to this lev­el of acid­i­ty, inti­mate gel can be used dai­ly.

2. The com­po­si­tion of the gel for inti­mate hygiene should include lac­tic acid, which helps main­tain the nat­ur­al pH of the inti­mate area.

Acid­i­fi­ca­tion of the vagi­nal envi­ron­ment with lac­tic acid sup­ports the growth of “good” lac­to­bacil­li, which con­sti­tute an essen­tial part of the vagi­nal flo­ra.

Lac­tic acid also rapid­ly inhibits the effects of alka­line bod­i­ly flu­ids such as blood (dur­ing men­stru­a­tion) or semen (dur­ing sex­u­al inter­course) that have pH lev­els above 7.

Thus, it can be used as a pro­phy­lac­tic for those who have fre­quent recur­rences of gen­i­tal infec­tions.

3. In addi­tion to lac­tic acid, the com­po­si­tion may include der­mato­pro­tec­tors and anti­sep­tics.

Gyno­com­fort con­tains pan­thenol, herbal anti­sep­tic oils, lac­tic acid and sodi­um lac­tate. This suc­cess­ful com­bi­na­tion is active­ly used to main­tain and restore the nat­ur­al pH lev­el in the vagi­na.

Pan­thenol soothes irri­ta­tion and mois­tur­izes the vagi­na well.

The pres­ence of plant extracts are val­ued for their anti-inflam­ma­to­ry and antibac­te­r­i­al prop­er­ties, pro­mote rapid regen­er­a­tion of the vagi­nal mucosa, and help neu­tral­ize unpleas­ant odors.

5. Wash­ing gels for inti­mate hygiene con­tain sur­fac­tants. They form a gen­tle foam, con­tain only “soft” and safe sur­fac­tants that gen­tly cleanse the vagi­nal mucosa.

The line of gels for dai­ly inti­mate hygiene Gyno­com­fort is rep­re­sent­ed by prod­ucts that have just such prop­er­ties. In the prod­uct line you will find 6 vari­ants of gels, each of which, in addi­tion to its main pur­pose (del­i­cate cleans­ing and refresh­ment of the inti­mate area), solves addi­tion­al tasks: for exam­ple, it takes care of very sen­si­tive skin.

At the same time, Gyno­com­fort gels do not dry out, do not cause irri­ta­tion and do not injure the vagi­nal mucosa.

All Gyno­com­fort prod­ucts were devel­oped by spe­cial­ists of the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­ny VERTEX and have the appro­pri­ate doc­u­ments and cer­tifi­cates.

The hypoal­ler­genic and safe com­po­si­tion of this gel allows it to be used even for the most sen­si­tive skin. Includ­ing allowed dur­ing preg­nan­cy and lac­ta­tion.

Vagina Care

Here are some help­ful tips for vagi­nal hygiene. There are many things you can do to keep him healthy and beau­ti­ful.

1. Wipe from front to back. When you use the toi­let, don’t wipe it from the back to the front, as this can spread bac­te­ria from your anus to your vagi­na. This can cause a range of infec­tions. Instead, always wipe from front to back. The same goes for any sex­u­al activ­i­ty. The front-to-back rule does­n’t just apply to rub­bing. Noth­ing that enters or near your anus should enter the vagi­na after this unless you clean it first. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant when it comes to sex and mas­tur­ba­tion — toys, fin­gers, tongues, penis­es, and any­thing else that might be near your anus should be washed before enter­ing your vagi­na.

2. Always uri­nate after sex. Go “small” after inti­ma­cy to force any germs out of your uri­nary tract. Dur­ing sex, germs can come into con­tact with your ure­thra, a small open­ing just above the entrance to your vagi­na. Urine after sex helps flush out these germs. If you don’t go to the bath­room, you can get a uri­nary tract infec­tion (UTI), an eas­i­ly treat­able but painful con­di­tion.

3. Choose items and care prod­ucts wise­ly. If some­thing is about to enter your vagi­na, be sure to test the ingre­di­ents before using it. Fla­vored lubri­cants, con­doms, and tam­pons should be avoid­ed. For exam­ple, lube is amaz­ing. This can bring sex to a new lev­el for all par­tic­i­pants in the process. How­ev­er, there are some ingre­di­ents that are not very good for your body. Glyc­erin, for exam­ple, is linked to sug­ar. While it works great to keep lube moist, it can also encour­age bac­te­r­i­al growth in the vagi­na. Petro­le­um prod­ucts in vagi­nal care prod­ucts are also banned because they can destroy the nat­ur­al pH lev­el. Oth­er things to avoid include: parabens, scent enhancers, fra­grances, unnat­ur­al oils, and chem­i­cal dyes.

4. Wear cot­ton under­wear. Breath­able cloth­ing and fab­rics keep vagi­nas hap­py. Cot­ton under­wear is both gen­tle and com­fort­able on your sen­si­tive pubic area—and it’s breath­able, which allows mois­ture to “exit” rather than build up and make your vagi­na sweat. Nylon and oth­er syn­thet­ic fab­rics can irri­tate the skin of the vul­va and anus. What­ev­er under­wear you like, just make sure you change it dai­ly.

5. Change sweaty or wet clothes as soon as pos­si­ble. Humid, warm con­di­tions are ide­al for harm­ful bac­te­ria to thrive. To pre­vent them from mul­ti­ply­ing and infect­ing your vagi­na, change out of your wet swim­suit or sweaty sweat­pants as soon as pos­si­ble.

6. Sleep­ing naked can be good for vagi­nal hygiene. No mat­ter what under­wear you wear dur­ing the day, tak­ing it off at night can help your vagi­na breathe. How­ev­er, the ben­e­fits don’t end there. Some research sug­gests that this cold­er tem­per­a­ture may be great for your health. Plus, once you’re in the nude, you’ll be sur­prised how incred­i­bly lib­er­at­ing and inspir­ing it can be!

7. Don’t for­get to get test­ed. Get test­ed reg­u­lar­ly for sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted infec­tions (STIs). You should be screened after any part­ners with whom you exchange gen­i­tal flu­ids.

8. Prac­tice only safe sex. One of the best and eas­i­est things you can do for vagi­nal health and hygiene is safe sex.

9. Main­tain mus­cle tone. Sat­is­fac­tion with sex­u­al rela­tions, and the suc­cess­ful course of child­birth, and the over­all con­di­tion of the vagi­na large­ly depend on the state of the inti­mate mus­cles. Tak­ing care of him is not only hygiene pro­ce­dures, but also train­ing his mus­cle tone. Kegel exer­cis­es, and spe­cial gad­gets — sim­u­la­tors, and in gen­er­al an active and healthy lifestyle will help. And in the absence of reg­u­lar inti­ma­cy and orgasms, a spe­cial ther­a­peu­tic and pro­phy­lac­tic gyne­co­log­i­cal mas­sage of the small pelvis, which can be done in our clin­ic, is a good means of pre­vent­ing stag­nant process­es in the inter­nal gen­i­tal organs and many wom­en’s prob­lems in gen­er­al.

If nothing helps, or when to go to the doctor

✔ Con­tact your gyne­col­o­gist in the com­ing days if you expe­ri­ence:

  • pain when you uri­nate, have sex, or mas­tur­bate
  • a sharp and unpleas­ant odor ema­nat­ing from the gen­i­tals;
  • blis­ters, sores or warts on an inti­mate area;
  • green, yel­low or gray leu­c­or­rhea;
  • thick dis­charge, sim­i­lar to cot­tage cheese;
  • per­sis­tent vaginal/anal itch­ing;
  • unex­plained vagi­nal bleed­ing.

How to use intimate hygiene gel

All inti­mate hygiene prod­ucts are for exter­nal use only. In appli­ca­tion, it is easy to squeeze a small amount of gel onto the hand, dilute with warm water and gen­tly apply the gel to the inti­mate area (with your hand, not with a brush and wash­cloth). Then rinse with warm water.

Which company is better to choose a tool

This ques­tion also can­not be answered unam­bigu­ous­ly. The rem­e­dy should be cho­sen based on data on the com­po­si­tion, the state of one’s health, indi­vid­ual pref­er­ences and a num­ber of oth­er fac­tors — every­one has their own selec­tion cri­te­ria.

In gen­er­al, all inti­mate hygiene prod­ucts have a rather lim­it­ed func­tion­al­i­ty — and give either a cleans­ing or mois­tur­iz­ing effect. You can start from which of these prop­er­ties is prefer­able in your sit­u­a­tion.

Mois­tur­iz­ing gels and creams are rec­om­mend­ed for ladies in such a peri­od of their life as menopause. Young women can also use them, for exam­ple, dur­ing preg­nan­cy, in case of can­didi­a­sis, col­pi­tis or tak­ing con­tra­cep­tives, which are usu­al­ly accom­pa­nied by severe dry­ing of the mucous mem­brane.

Cleans­ing gels con­tain active ingre­di­ents, like oth­er wash­ing and clean­ing prod­ucts, and, in addi­tion, a rich antibac­te­r­i­al com­plex. It is rec­om­mend­ed to use them dur­ing men­stru­a­tion, with active phys­i­cal activ­i­ty.

Myth No3: “Beautiful lace tango panties are not harmful to health.”

No gyne­col­o­gist will ever rec­om­mend syn­thet­ic underwear3, espe­cial­ly tan­go or thong designs. The rea­son is sim­ple — the poor hygro­scop­ic­i­ty of syn­thet­ic mate­ri­als pro­motes the growth of bacteria4, which can lead to the devel­op­ment of a num­ber of gyne­co­log­i­cal diseases5, and a nar­row strip of tis­sue rub­bing the mucous mem­brane itself irri­tates and injures it. Wear syn­thet­ic lace panties only in excep­tion­al cas­es, and be sure to pay due atten­tion to inti­mate hygiene.
