Every woman has two faces, one is the face that everyone can see, and the other “face” is in the most intimate place. Both of them require health care and maintain. From a health concern magazine ‘Health Times’ – “When it comes to skin care, every woman has her own skin care routine, hydrating, whitening, moisturizing, anti-aging and many more. But when it comes to private part maintenance, there are not so many people know. Protecting the reproductive system should be like brushing teeth and skin care. It must be a habit that must be done every day. Improper care of the private part can bring a lot of “unspeakable difficulty” to women.
How to maintain? You can refer the following recommendations below: –

1. Cleansing.

Pay attention to develop good hygiene habits. Wash hands before going to the toilet, change clean underwear, pay attention to daily cleaning of the intimate area, especially during menstruation. You should use clean water to wash away residual dirt on the skin of the intimate area to prevent pathogens. These substances enter the body and causes diseases. DO NOT shoots or pumps water inside the vagina and the general washing liquid can only be used to clean the vulva (outer vagina).

2. Exercise the pelvic muscles.

Don’t hesitate to do pelvic floor muscle exercise. Under normal conditions, the vaginal opening is usually in the closed state, the front and back walls of the vagina are tightly attached, making the vagina tighter, thus preventing the invasion of external pathogen. As women age, especially after giving birth, the vaginal wall will loosen up, so pelvic floor exercise is a must.
Recommended female exercise method: Kegel training!

Method: Contract the pelvic floor muscle while inhale. Then relaxing the muscles, exhale and repeat several times. Continue to contract for 3 seconds and relax for 3 seconds. You can do it anytime, anywhere. Contracting and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles, repeatedly for 10 minutes, will have a good effect.

3. Don’t use drugs

When the vaginal discharge (leucorrhoea) increases, some may feel the urge to buy a vaginal cream suppository. This is not necessary. Leucorrhoea is a normal vaginal discharge of women, in a certain physiological cycle, after menstruation, the discharge may increase, but this is not a disease and does not need to be dealt with. It is not advisable to use suppositories. If you find any difficulties, you should see doctors immediately. Applying medicine by yourself may damage the acid-base balance of the vagina and the normal vaginal microbiome, but it is more likely to cause illness.

4. Wear tight pants

Tights can easily aggravate the reproductive system by friction, use with long-term will give stress to the muscles, it is not conducive to women’s health. Reduce in wearing tight jeans and stretch pants, especially thong panties with tight denim. These combinations of pants are basically a reproductive system killer.

5. Regular medical examination

In order to find a laceration early. This is not to say that young women can take this lightly, in the presence of discomfort or abnormal conditions, such as itching, pain, etc. little discomfort may be a warning of genital tract infections. You should go to the hospital to find a specialist for diagnosis and treatment immediately.

How to choose the right sanitary napkins

Sanitary napkin is a must for every woman. Especially during the first few days of menstruation. How to choose sanitary napkin is still worth considering.
Let’s take a look at the problem on how to choose a sanitary napkin.
Women that have sensitive skin is most vulnerable toskin irritation during menstruation. According to the survey, 73% of women feel itchiness in intimate area during menstruation. Also, burning pain sensation is mostly due to the use of non-breathable sanitary napkins. Therefore, if you want to be safe from burning pain and injury, it is important to choose a suitable sanitary napkin. The sanitary napkins generally consist of surface layer, absorbing layer and bottom layer. Please put in consideration of the materials and functions of these three parts.

h

1.

The surface layer should be selected from the dry mesh funnel type. Dry surface layer can protect the skin from moisture; funnel design is better than flat design. The penetrated liquid is not easily reflowed outward.

h

2.

The middle layer is preferably ventilated and contains a highly efficient gelatinized layer. A sanitary napkin containing a highly effective gelatinized layer that trap the liquid into gel state, no back osmosis even after pressing and no sticky feeling on the surface.

h

3.

The bottom layer is made out of breathable material, which allows water vapour molecules to pass through smoothly, thereby achieving timely discharge of moisture. Allowing the sanitary napkins in removing body moisture, effectively reducing the hot and dampness between the sanitary napkin and the body. You will stay dry and fresh.

Also note the following:

Note the date of manufacture

Pay attention to the date of manufacture, shelf life and manufacturer factory when buying anything. Avoid buying non-quality products from unsatisfactory manufacturers or expired products.

Note on product types

Sanitary napkins divided into 3 types: daily, night, and pantyliner. Pay attention to which one to buy, of course, in certain days, these types can be use on the same day. First few days, you can use daily and night types, after that, use the pantyliner. Pay attention to the selection of famous brands. In recent years, the safety of sanitary napkins has received much attention, and the problem of adding fluorescent agents has been deeply disturbing. Although well known brands can’t escape the risk of being counterfeit by “small factory”, but at least they still have some guarantees. We should change the brand regularly to increase the safety factor. Pay attention to the quantity of the menses. The menstrual period is generally 4 to 7 days, and at least 3-4 sanitary napkins are replaced every day. Especially in the first 2-3 days, the changing pads is more frequent. Use daily types during the day, while, use the night types at night. After that, use the pantyliner. So that you have enough quantity to make it through. It is best to choose not to have scent. After all, no scent is always good.

Sanitary napkins are inseparable partners for women during menstruation, but if these points are not to be bother about, then, “good partner” may become the “murderer” who hurts you!

Sanitary napkins are inseparable partners for women during menstruation, but if these points are not to be bother about, then, "good partner" may become the "murderer" who hurts you!

Pay attention to these 5 points when using sanitary napkins!

1) How often do you change the sanitary napkin?

During menstruation, women’s resistance decline, intimate parts are hot and humid. If you do not change the sanitary napkin for a long time, it is not only prone for the genital to be itchy. It may also cause bacterial growth and induce vaginitis!

Recommendation: Replace the sanitary napkin every 2-4 hours or so.

2) Do you wash your hands before changing the sanitary napkin?

Everyone was educated from an early age: wash their hands before and after meals, but would you wash your hands before changing the sanitary napkins?

When changing the sanitary napkin, the hand will inevitably come into contact with the top of the sanitary napkin. If the hands are not clean, the sanitary napkins can be easily contaminated. Do you wish to use a piece of contaminated sanitary napkin?

Recommendation: It is always better to prevent, so wash your hands before changing the sanitary napkin.

3) Where is your sanitary napkin stored?

In terms of ease of use, it is very convenient to put the sanitary napkin in the bathroom. However, it is not safe to put in the bathroom! It is the condition of the toilets that have no sunshine, humid and no ventilation all day long. Under such conditions, the sanitary napkins are prone to moisture and fungus when you first open the whole package at once!

Recommendation: When sanitary napkins are placed in the bathroom, you can purchase sanitary napkins that are individually packaged and sealed.

4) Which fabric would you choose?

Currently, the most common fabrics are cotton surface and mesh, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The transient effect of the mesh surface is good. As a daily necessity that is in close contact with the skin (and is a particularly thin and sensitive part of the skin), the uppermost layer of the sanitary napkin, that is the mesh surface, has primary responsibility for sensitization. The mesh surface is roughly divided into two types: 1) cotton mesh surface, which is made from water-spun non-woven fabric, which is softer and less sensitive; 2) perforated film, also known as dry mesh surface. It is made of polyethylene film with small holes, which is more sensitizing. No matter whether it is the mesh surface or the thin film, there must be no scent, colour spots and no colour pattern.

The cotton mesh is very loose and the liquid penetrates faster. The dry mesh surface itself is a waterproof material. After the liquid enters the lower layer through the small hole, it is not easy to reflowed outward, so the skin feels drier. The cotton surface is more skin-friendly and does not hurt the vulva (outer vagina lips). The absorption effect is also good.

Suggestion: Choose the right one for yourself. If your vulva is more sensitive, choose a skin-friendly sanitary napkin to prevent allergies. It is generally not easy to leak sideways.

5) ) Do you use a sanitary napkin with a scent?

Women with menstruation generally have a bloody smell around their private part of their body, if there is gynaecological inflammation, the odour will be stronger. Thus, many people will choose a sanitary napkin with fragrance and herbal scent.

But this is not a cure for the symptoms. Fragrance additives can cause allergies, it can destroy the balance of acid and alkali in the private part, leading to dysbacteriosis and causing inflammation. Cool sanitary napkins may cause cold uterus!

Recommendation: Choose a sanitary napkin that is eco-friendly, non-additive, and will not cause sensitive skin irritation.
