A Healthy Vagina is a Happy Vagina

Our top tips for keeping your vagina health in check!

October 4th, 2019 |Lifestyle

Wear cotton or nothing at all

Not exactly the sexy option you were hoping for but your vagina has a preference and that preference comes in the form of that every day fabric COTTON. Therefore, most underwear comes with a thin strip of cotton fabric in the crotch area. Cotton breathes and absorbs moisture making it the ideal fabric. Better than cotton is nothing at all! Your vagina needs to breathe - it sounds strange saying it as much as it feels writing it, but it’s true. If you’re in the house alone or in bed let it free and go commando.

Give your vagina a work out

That’s right your lady parts need a gym session or two a week. Doing kegels exercises is crucial for strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. This will help to prevent incontinence and control bladder weakness as well as enhance sexual arousal.

Regular check ups

Regular check-ups with your GP or gynaecologist are a must. As much as we all moan about the thought of going legs akimbo for a stranger, they are used to it (and it’s their job). The appointments are quick and easy and give you an opportunity to discuss concerns/sexual health questions you may have. All women who are registered with a GP are invited for cervical screening aged 25 to 49 – every three years. A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) is a method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix and could help to save your life.

Eat greek yogurt

Snacking on tasty Greek yogurt can help boost healthy bacteria which is perfect for preventing those annoying vaginal problems like yeast infections.

Smelly Soap

There is nothing more appealing than a scented bubble bath or that new foaming shower gel but they are not gentle on your female genitalia. Soap can be really drying to the sensitive skin around your vulva. You only really need to rinse with warm water to keep things clean down there. There are some great alternative such as Sanex zero % free from parabens, colorants and soap.

Sexual health

Using a condom is obviously known to help protect against STDs and pregnancy but can also help keep your vagina at a healthy PH balance. Preventing yeast infections, UTIs, and bacterial vaginosis that going condom free can cause.


If you have any concerns regarding your vagina's well-being, contact your GP you can even request a female GP should you prefer this.
