“How to Actually Clean Your Vagina,” As Told by BuzzFeed

As I was doing a Friday-morning Facebook peruse, I came across this article about the dos and don’ts of vaginal washing. Bottom line: vaginas clean themselves and don’t need much help!

As they explain in the article, the vagina is full of good bacteria that keep your pH levels where they should be. Meaning that douches, many soaps, and other urban lore methods of vagina cleaning (steaming was apparently a thing…?) can actually be harmful to your vaginal health. Nice warm water whenever you’re in the shower should do the trick for cleaning the vulva (the outer genitalia — labia and clitoris), and the vagina will take care of itself. For more information, check out this article and as always come visit the office if you have questions!

  1. Sound advice, and while we are at genital cleaning, the male organ needs only a light cleaning, retract the foreskin, rinse and replace. Cutting is never needed.
