The vagina is a self-cleaning organ and does not require cleaning.
Vaginal discharge is a normal process. Normal vaginal discharge can be white, clear, or thick, but it usually does not smell bad.
The amounts of vaginal discharge are different for each person.
If you prefer to clean your vagina, we recommend preventing abnormal vaginal discharge by:
– Using warm water and unscented non-soap cleanser to wash your vagina on the outside.
– Taking baths in plain warm water, and not using scented bath products
– Not using sprays or powders on your vagina
– Not douching (putting liquid inside the vagina to rinse it out)
– Not wiping with baby wipes or scented toilet paper after you use the toilet
Using other cleaning products can change the pH balance of your vagina, resulting in vaginal infections.
