    How To Shop For Panties That Keep Your Vagina Healthy

    Intimate wear sits right on your skin, while your panties hug your lady bits down south throughout the time you wear them. They are the accumulation point of your vaginal secretions and sweat. No wonder, you need to be particular about your panties since they are integral to your vaginal health and hygiene. 

    Here are 6 tips you have to keep in mind for maintaining a healthy vagina.

    6 Tips To Consider While Buying Panties For Maintaining A Healthy Vagina

    There is no alternative for natural fabrics like cotton for your underwear. These fabrics are breathable and comfortable for your lady parts. What’s more, they also absorb vaginal discharges, preventing you from feeling wet throughout the day and night!). There is another flip side to these secretions accumulating on your underwear. It creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, which is known for causing vaginal infections. 

    2. Change Your Underwear Daily

    Don’t think twice about changing it more than once, if you’re experiencing an unusually heavy vaginal discharge.

    Huh! Do we even need to mention that? There’s a reason why you were taught to change your underwear every day since your childhood. They are the ideal assembling place for your bodily fluids, internal and external. And again it goes without saying, that you have to wash it every time you use it.

    3. Don’t Wear Wet Or Moist Underwear

    … the only way to not end up wearing entirely wet or semi-wet underwear is not to wash all of them together.

    Okay, so you’ve just washed all your underwear together and now don’t have a clean, dry one to wear. Now what? You have to wait till one of them dries completely, before you can slip into it. Or maybe you can try ironing it dry, although this is not something you can do every day, so you don’t ruin its elasticity. The heat of the iron tends to loosen up the elastic of your underwear, making them unwearable soon. So, the only way to not end up wearing entirely wet or semi-wet underwear is not to wash all of them together. Because doing so will only raise the chances of vaginal infection, as we’ve already mentioned before.
