Intimate Hygiene A Down Deep and Demanding Routine for Women
Hygiene matters! Yes. Good personal hygiene is very important in sustaining a sound body and mind. Hygiene not only keeps your body clean but also safeguards your body against infections and prevents the risks of various medical conditions. When it comes to hygiene one area that often gets overlooked or neglected is the intimate area.
So, what could be the probable reason behind it? Well, it could either be a lack of knowledge on this subject or social taboo which is the most common. Understanding the matters related to the delicate intimate area, the Vagina and its significance are something that has to be voiced out. Menstruation, Motherhood, and Menopause are the phases a woman has to go through in her life. Vaginal health plays an important role throughout. And, ignoring the hygiene of the intimate area can result in infections, discomforting symptoms, and ailments.
Ideally, the vaginal canal has an acidic pH value (3.5-4.5) that helps in keeping this area clean and protects from infections. The vagina also has some live bacteria. Yes, you’ve heard it right. The lactic acid bacilli present in the vagina release the lactic acid which helps maintain the acidic pH levels. The pH value undergoes constant change due to various factors like bacterial infections, menstrual bleeding, menopause, post-delivery, lactation, post-coitus, fungal infections, urinary tract infections, medical conditions like diabetes, use of antibiotics & tampons, STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases), etc. How do all these factors affect? Through various modes such as low levels of estrogen hormone, high pH of blood and semen, killing/washing away of all bacteria by use of medicine/douching and tampons, inflammation, invasion of disease-causing pathogens, sprays /perfumes with a strong fragrance, use of harsh chemicals laden soap/body wash, perfumed and skin unfriendly sanitary wear, synthetic/tight /ill-fitting underwear, etc.
As we have already mentioned before, the vagina has live bacteria that regulate the pH value and is a defense system just right there. So, the ideal approach is to sustain these bacteria. The best way to do this is to keep it constant and avoid its depletion by maintaining its colony count. Here one thing that has to be kept in mind, is, the mode should be natural and one that would help these healthy bacteria flourish. And how will this get accomplished? Now here comes the role of the Microbiomes! What are these Microbiomes? These are the microorganisms that live in/on the human body in colonies. Their existence is non-harmful and in mutualistic relationships. The Lactobacillus species in the vaginal cavity is one such microbiome. To let these microbes thrive, regular dosing of a prebiotic has to be given. Prebiotics are those compounds present in food that induce the growth of these florae.
