8 Ways to Take Care of Your Body’s Special Parts

3) Use non-scented toilet tissues, soap, powders, sanitary napkins and tampons

It doesn’t take much to maintain your vaginal health, but it also doesn’t take much to disrupt it either.  Avoid using any kind of scented products that come into close contact with your vagina.  The most that’s needed is a daily subtle cleaning of its surface.  Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is another infection that can occur when the vagina becomes irritated and an overgrowth of certain bacteria occurs.  BV mimics many of the same symptoms as a yeast infection and although it is not dangerous it can be uncomfortable to live with.  Unlike a yeast infection that you can treat with over-the-counter medication, BV can only be treated with an antibiotic that must be prescribed by a doctor or clinician.  It is a fairly common condition and over 29% of women in the United States are affected.  Your best bet for a happy va-jay-jay is to allow it to do its job and put those products back on the shelf.
