The holidays are here! If you are like most people, you’re scrambling to find great gifts for your loved ones to show them how much you appreciate them. What about yourself, more
specifically, your vagina? Vaginas are one of the most sensual, strong, and beautiful body
parts, and require some upkeep to keep them in impeccable condition. So, what could
your vagina possibly need?
1. Comfy underwear- Wearing certain types of underwear (lace, nylon, polyester,
spandex) and ones that are too tight can set you up for itching, chaffing, skin
irritation, as well as make it more likely that you develop a yeast infection or other
vaginal infections. Not even the sexiest underwear is worth that. Cotton is best. It
is very breathable and keeps away moisture. If you are a thong person like me,
make sure at least the thong part is 100% cotton and is not tight between the butt
2. Vaginal Steam- Vaginal steaming is an old remedy dating back thousands of years. This
method is a favored treatment amongst holistic health practitioners and midwives for
reducing menstrual cramps, increasing fertility, and to help the entire body relax from
*Make sure to do your research if you're thinking about using this method. Remember this uses steam, don't go burning your vagina now...follow the directions/recommendations.*
3. Kegel Balls- You can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles discreetly. Strengthening the
Kegel muscle can help treat urinary incontinence, prevent vaginal prolapse, speed up
vaginal recovery post-pregnancy, and… increase sexual pleasure (i.e. the big O).
The holidays, although a joyous time, are also very stressful. Stress can throw off your
pH balance. Watch out for signs of imbalance (odor, dryness, discoloration of discharge)
and address them accordingly to prevent any infections.
