Do not be shy or embarrassed to talk about your vaginal health – it is as much a part of us as any other organ in our body. If we pay so much attention to our face, hands and feet, why shouldn’t we do the same for the vagina?
However, due to cultural taboos regarding sex and sexual health most women have the tendency to ignore, neglect and avoid discussing this very part that make them woman.
Considering that the vagina is a part of the body that we pay so little attention to, there are surprisingly a lot of factors that can affect the state of the vagina and increase the risk of problems.
On top of the list of common vaginal health problems are sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). These infections cause abnormal discharge and sores on the genital area, so be wary of the changes and check with your gynecologist immediately.
Infections and changes in the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina can cause inflammation, abnormal and smelly vaginal discharge and itching.
Women's Sexual Health
The vagina plays a central role in a woman’s sexual pleasure. Unfortunately, childbirth, menopause and aging cause the vagina muscles to become weaker and less “elastic” leading to loss of sensation during sex. Drop in vaginal estrogen levels during these milestones in our lives can also cause the lining of the vaginal wall to become thinner and less lubricated making sex painful.
Women go for facials, manicures and pedicures, but hardly spare a thought for their vaginas until something goes wrong. We should change this attitude and be more proactive in the health of our vagina.
