Female Development and Style

I hope everything is fine with you. Me? I’m okay. My emotions are all over the place some days but I am grateful for everything going on. I was given the opportunity to have a class on sexual health some days back. it was in a closed group of amazing ladies.

I’ve decided to share my notes in this blog post so we can all learn.

I will talk about taking care of the Vagina, what you should do before & after sex, why vagina infections occur, and how often you should get tested. Let’s go!

Tips on taking care of the Vagina for better Sexual Health

  • Wash your panties regularly. I mean. Obviously.
  • Don’t wash your vagina with soap, she cleanses herself.
  • Sundry your panties. The sun’s ultraviolet rays help to sterilize the panties and remove all the moisture that would have otherwise remained if they are left to dry indoors. “Moisture enhances bacterial and fungal growth which also explains why some people end up developing an odor“. if you can’t sundry your panties, Iron them.
  • Don’t douch unless prescribed. If it’s not a CLEAN penis, CLEAN fingers, CLEAN sex toys, or the pill for infection. Nothing else should go into your vagina.
  • Wash new underwear before wearing and rinse properly!
  • Cotton is the best material for your panties. Cotton absorbs excess moisture and removes build-up heat from the area. It is especially important to wear cotton underwear during times of high humidity. This is the best time for yeast infections, itching, and odor to occur. Avoid underwear at night entirely if cotton is not available. Let your vagina breathe. Thanks.

Rituals Before and After Sex

  • Have your condoms ready – ‘I don’t have a condom‘ is not something you should be hearing in 2020. if you are sexually active, you should have a condom in your purse.

  • Have your lube ready – Not everyone needs lube but if you do, get the one that works best for you. Three basic types of lube exist Water-based, oil-based, and silicone. Water-based lubes work best for use with body-safe, silicone sex toys (while silicone lube degrades them); super slick silicone lubes work best for a situation like anal, and oil-based lubes work for unprotected sex, but weaken condoms.
  • Start off slow – Undressing each other piece by piece, taking time to feel your partner’s body, pace your partner, let yourself get wet, and welcome your sexual partner. Remember, It’s your body and you can always withdraw consent.
  • Pee before and after sex – Urinating before and after sex decreases the chance of a urinary tract infection.
  • Sex toys must be clean – I’ll recommend using condoms with sex toys or changing them completely, don’t use the same toys for anal sex in your Vagina. If you do, this can introduce bacteria from the anus to your vagina leading to infection.
  • Wipe front to back – This helps your butt bacteria stay where it should be and keep any germs or bacteria from coming in contact with your urethra.

Why do vaginal infections happen?

Vaginal infections occur when bacteria, fungi, or other organisms grow uncontrolled. Some of these organisms already live in the vagina and are kept at healthy levels by coexisting with other organisms. Infectious organisms can also be introduced into the vagina by improper hygiene or unsafe sex.

How often should you get tested

Get tested at LEAST once a year, I recommend 3-4 times if you’re sexually active and anytime you feel different, an irregular discharge, odor, or pain.
