Vagina Care How To Clean Vagina Smart Tips on Vagina Wash

The vagina is a very sensitive part of a woman’s body. The following guideline is to provide a safe method of cleansing while avoiding possible irritation and/or infection. Also don’t forget to consult your doctor for any possible infection or cancer. Vagina care should be part of your regular body hygiene.

Perspiration or secreted or excreted fluid may create an odor when in contact with bacteria on your skin. Use antibacterial wipes, or Always Wipes, or wash this area with soap and water if you detect an odor. Some odors are related to vaginal infections. If you have a discolored discharge and any itching or burning associated with this odor, see your doctor.

Some girls and women shave the part of their pubic hair that shows when they are wearing a bathing suit. If you are going to shave, use a really good shaving cream, like Gillette SatinCare gel, and a good razor, like the Gillette Venus razor. I hear more and more about girls shaving their entire pubic area, but I don’t understand the reason for it. A shaved pubic area will itch really badly as it grows back, and there is no need to shave this area at all. You can use hair removing cream instead. Soft vagina wash is recommended to have healthy vagina hygiene.

The Process of cleaning vagina

  • Get in your shower in the most comfortable position to wash your vulva. This could be either standing with the shower head running or even squatting while the tap is running.

  • If you are left handed, use your left hand or if you are right handed, use your right hand. Gently rub your vulva with your index, middle and ring finger with clean water, get between your labia (lips) to make sure any discharge, dead cells or dirt is removed.

  • Using a clean wash cloth or a plastic cup, rinse by pouring water over the vulva. Don’t rub too hard, or get the water too hot. This could lead to irritation.

Keep It Clean, Regularly Take Care
  • You should not use soaps or washes. These will dry-out the mucus membrane of the inside of your vulva which may cause irritation, and toxins that may be present in some products are more easily absorbed through the mucus membrane. Soaps and washes will also effect the natural pH of your vagina/vulva which effects healthy bacterial balance – this can lead to bad odour and risk infections.
  • Wash or wipe using a front to back motion (meaning spread your labia[vaginal lips] apart and wipe from front to back). This helps to prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTI).
  • Make sure when you go to clean your vagina, that your hands are clean, and do not have soap on them, if you don’t want to use soap.
  • Be gentle! Aggressive scrubbing could damage sensitive tissues of the vagina.
  • Use minimal soap and be careful to avoid getting soap inside the vagina.

  • Wash the buttocks and anal area last to avoid cross contamination. Anal bacteria reaching the vagina (by piggy-backing on a wash cloth or fingers) can cause serious discomfort and/or infection. Gently wash in front to back direction.
  • Be careful during menstrual period

Vagina Cleaning FAQs

What is Vagina Vulva?

The outside female genitalia is called the vulva. The inside female genitalia is called the vagina. So even though we use vagina as a general term to refer to the entire female genitalia, the medical term only refers to the inside.

What is the truth about the cleanliness of vaginas?

First of all, yes, the vagina is full of bacteria. It needs to have that bacteria in order to stay healthy – they are the “good” bacteria. When you eliminate the bacteria (by taking antibiotics, for example), that allows overgrowth of other things, like yeast. Yeast can exist in the vagina, but when they grow too much, they can cause itching, burning, pain with sex, redness, or odor. There are certain bacteria that shouldn’t be in the vagina – like Chlamydia (a sexually transmitted infection), or E. coli (a bacteria found in stool). Another bacteria that can exist in the vagina, Group B Strep (GBS), does nothing to the woman, but can cause a serious infection in infants, so if a pregnant woman has it, we give her Penicillin in labor to get rid of it before the baby comes out.

Vagina care should be devoid of chemicals unless vagina is not infected with yeast or serious ailments. Consult doctor in such scenarios.

Should you clean your vagina?

Bottom line: not really. Most women have a small amount of daily mucous discharge, fully clean vagina with chemically treated soap is not recommended. That discharge is produced by glands in the vagina. That mucous traps any untoward elements, and pushes them out. That’s why the vagina is “self-cleaning.” An increase in the amount of discharge isn’t very concerning – usually it is related to the hormonal cycle, or random chance. A change in the color of the discharge can sometimes come with an infection, so you should see your doctor in that case. But using a douche doesn’t really help. It pushes things up when you really want things to come down. And what is up? Your uterus and cervix. If there is anything dangerous in the vagina, you would be pushing it up toward your uterus, and potentially your fallopian tubes. That means that if there is “bad” bacteria in there, like Chlamydia or Gonorrhea, that bacteria would then be pushed upward into a sterile area, and cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which can cause tubal scarring and infertility.

Should you clean your vulva?

Yes, this is OK. The vulva are on the outside, and so have the tougher external skin that covers most of our bodies. However, I have found that the vulvar skin, being hidden from the outside world most of the time, is more sensitive than the skin on your arms or legs. It can often become very irritated by shaving/waxing, or the detergent in soap, which strips off the natural oils. This can cause a vulvar dermatitis, which can be extremely itchy, and looks like dry patches of a lighter color than the rest of the skin. When this happens, I advise women to stop using soap or removing hair at least temporarily, and I usually prescribe a cream to help with inflammation. If you think you have vulvar dermatitis, see your gynecologist. If you want to stop using soap on the vulva, I recommend washing with water and a washcloth. This can remove the dirt/discharge without irritating the sensitive vulvar skin.

Should you shave your vulva?

Meh. You can, if you want to, but stop if it causes problems. Hair removal pulls the hair from the shaft, and can introduce bacteria into the hair follicle. When this happens, a woman can get folliculitis, which looks like a small pimple, and is painful. If this happens, I advise women to stop hair removal at least in that area. It’s important to remember that hair removal is entirely cosmetic, and has no medical benefits, so if it’s causing irritation, it’s time to stop, at least temporarily. Not every culture thinks women should be hairless. Apart from hygiene, clean vagina is good for foreplays too.

One potential alternative is trimming the hair instead. This can avoid the folliculitis complication while still feeling neat/clean.

What should you do for the occasional itch?

If you are having persistent itch or pain, you can try an over-the-counter yeast cream, or see a gynecologist. But if you get the occasional itch down there, and you are pretty sure it’s nothing, you can buy any popular non-allergic brand OTC product. It has to be a pain reliever and a soothing ointment, and can take care of the occasional itch, or pain from folliculitis. If it doesn’t help, see a doctor.

How do you know if you need to see a doctor?

Occasional mild symptoms, like itching or odor, can arise with changes in cycle, especially around the time of menses. Something that does away quickly on its own, especially once your period is over, is usually no big deal. Symptoms that are severe, or that are constant and persistent, mean that you should be evaluated by a doctor.

    Women are different than other women, in the respect of what their vagina smells like. Some women smell good others bit bad. Few worst. Or whether it even has a smell at all. Infact I love sweat vaginas a lot. As it is turn on for me. Guys also take it differently.

  2. Dirty vagina is a big NO NO and never attempted for a lick. My girlfriend from texas was too dirty. And I broke with her after 3 months. My advice to girls who want bf to lick them. If you are certain that you are infection-free, then the problem has to be elsewhere. Diet plays a factor. Spicy foods and certain vegetables can do that. Sometimes the vaginal mucosa do NOT like perfumy vaginal washes and over-react. That could be the source of your excessive production of fluids. I’m going to assume showers and not baths. You probably know by now to wash well on the outside only. Dry well with a fresh towel. Always put on fresh cotton panties if you’re getting dressed for the day. It sounds like letting yourself “air out” every night would be a very good idea in your case, absent any visits from Aunt Flo. T-shirt is plenty if you’re not comfortable sleeping in the buff. That would be the sum of my advice. Cut out the spicy food and the douches, wash and dry well, always use clean towels/underwear, and go commando at night. Make sure BF is as clean and hygienic as you so that he doesn’t give you back this problem you don’t want. I thought of sharing experience so that it helps other bfs who are victim of dirty vaginas.

    I used it today for the first time because I feel like I smell bad and I just want to make sure it’s not going to **** up my vagina! Lol thanks to all in advance! And this is a serious question!!!!!!! So please serious answers!

  4. kevindiking67verizonnet says:

    Well just don’t ask too much questions but I saw it happen and the girl didn’t seem to care.

  5. I have very course hairs on my vagina. For the last couple of days I have been squeezing out these black rice like hard clogs. They dont hurt but when I tweeze them out they usually come with a strand of curled hair wrapped in it. What could these be? I’m so grossed out.

  6. She has this stuff that looks like ricotta cheese coming out of her vagina. It smells sweet. She is also itchy down there and it not just happens when we have sex. It is constantly.

  7. My boyfriends penis is like 5 inches so im afraid ima be loose forever and neither of us will feel anything anymore. /: i dont even care if i do tho cuz i love him, im just pariniod in the future he will get tired of me being loose and cheat or something .):

  8. I think i have a yeast infection, and I was wondering if there is a way i can take care of it at home, like things i could eat or drink to see if it goes away before i go to the doctor? Its my first one so im not positive if its one. I’m only 13 and im emmbersed to tell my mom so is there something i could do before i have to tell her?

    1. Eat yogurt u will feel immediate relief
      And eat garlic too it might stink but I promise it works 2-3 pieces will help 🙂
      N talk to ur mom there is no need to fell shy about it… Its Natural

  9. Only Business says:

    By no means to creep people out, but for example a lot of Caucasians have the inner labia hanging out but for others they have extremely closed one’s.

    Does the amount of estrogen/testosterone levels correlate to the size?

    I know men wouldn’t care but are you self-conscious in any way about it?

  10. kerrin marz says:

    For the past week I have had a pea sized lump in my vagina. It is located under the skin right above my clitoris, on the pink part. The lump has no color or odor to it. It doesn’t have a white head or anything. It is painful to the touch. It’s also painful when I wipe myself after I urinate because it is being slightly moved obviously. I plan on going to the doctors this week but I just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same thing. The size of the lump has not changed. I don’t mess with it or do anything to it. Could it be a cyst?

  11. I have very course hairs on my vagina. For the last couple of days I have been squeezing out these black rice like hard clogs. They dont hurt but when I tweeze them out they usually come with a strand of curled hair wrapped in it. What could these be? I’m so grossed out.

  12. mrankinmatt says:

    Me and my boyfriend just finished having sex when I realized that I was bleeding.
    I’ve had sex before, so I’m not a virgin. And this was not our first time having sex together.
    We were using a comdom & it didn’t break. But then I took a small mirror and saw that there was a small tear at the end of my vagina. I can’t go to my mom about this because she doesn’t know I’ve had sex.
    So what should I do?

  13. stealspartansbcglobalnet says:

    I’m talking with a group of teenage girls tommorrow about growing up. Last time one girl asked if there were any serious medical effects of not washing the vulva/vaginal area for a long period of time, given that the vagina self cleans. I said we’d talk about it next time but I’ve only come up with cystitis! Any other ideas? Help please ladies!

  14. I know on the package it says vaginal care but doesnt really give much detail about it..so it is harmful to use in that way to relieve some vaginal area itching..p.s. I HAD a yeast infection not too long ago but i took the medicine for it and it went away..but then i got hemroids so thats why i got the wipes and so the itching came back also so i was jus curious..plz real answers only!
