Your vagina is a very sensitive area, and even when something seems harmless it can leave you with infection, irritation or a scratch in this region. It is vital to know what can and what cannot go closer to your vagina.
PLASTIC AND RUBBER SEX TOYS
When using them for a while, vibrators made of soft plastic and rubber may become worn, and these small cracks are ideal for hiding germs. So you will easily get an infection and if you use these gadgets, choose those made of hard plastic, silicon or stainless steel. And do not forget to wash them after use.
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Although for many it looks interesting, inserting fruits and vegetables into the vagina can disturb the natural micro flora of this sensitive region. Thus, it can easily lead to bacterial or fungal infection.
OIL BASED LUBRICANTS
Lubricant is a great invention and has improved sex life for many women. But avoid lubricants that contain oil or Vaseline. Such lubricants are harder to rinse, which sets the ideal conditions for bacterial growth. Also, oil lubricants can lead to breakage of condoms, which carries more risk. It is best to opt for those that are silicon or water-based.
Many gynecologists claim that intimate soaps, deodorants and wet wipes are completely unnecessary, because the vagina cleans itself. These products contain a lot of chemicals that dry out and irritate the vagina and stimulate the growth of bacteria and viruses.
CHOCOLATE AND CREAM
Imagination can do anything, but while playing with chocolate or whipped cream can be very sexy; these products can make a real mess in your vaginal area. Sugar in contact with mucous membranes of the vagina can disrupt your pH value and lead to fungal infections.
PUBIC HAIR REMOVAL CREAM
The chemicals in the depilatory creams are very strong and may damage the vaginal region and lead to infection. Also, they can very easily trigger allergic reaction, which can be very unpleasant. Although shaving can lead to itching and irritated hair, it is much safer option than cream.
PAINT FOR HAIRS IN INTIMATE AREA
The skin in the pubic region is more sensitive than those on your head. If chemicals come in contact with your labia you can get very nasty burns. However painting can only be carried out by hairdresser.
