A woman’s private organ is expected to be kept clean regularly because bacteria can easily get in.
As a woman advances in age, her private organ goes through a lot of changes, be it in the appearance of the private organ. It is important to be cautious of what you wear and avoid things that may bring infections to the private organ.
This article lists four things women should avoid doing to their private organs in order to keep them healthy.
- Do not engage in private organ steaming
Engaging in private organ steaming may hurt the private organ. The skin of the private organ is very delicate, and burns occur. Some people use herbs for steaming, and it may cause miscarriage for women who are pregnant. Steaming your private organ may increase the chances of getting an infection, by changing the bacteria in your private organ.
2. Don’t try self-medication when you have an infection
It is important to go for the appropriate medication when an infection surfaces. Most women may want to use garlic and ginger to treat yeast infections, and this is wrong. This may end up causing a chemical burn inside the private organ if one isn’t careful.
3. Do not engage in douching
Douching involves washing the private organ using a mixture of different substances in a container, to keep it clean and free from odour. Douching makes the private organ open to infection, unknowingly it changes the pH level of the private organ. A woman’s private organ is meant to be acidic, to prevent bacteria from growing.
4. Do not insert foreign objects into your private organ
Apart from a tampon, birth control device, a man’s private organ, toys for intimacy, and certain medications, nothing else should go into a woman’s private organ. It is important to avoid placing foreign objects into the private organ, to avoid infection or irritation.
A woman’s private organ is very sensitive, and be careful about how you handle it. It is also a self-cleaning organ and it doesn’t need any other cleaning agent.
