There are a lot of things in a woman’s body that we are too embarrassed to talk about. One in particular is about our “intimate area”. Though learned from school, Women of age specially in teenage years has a lot of questions about this certain topic. What to do? What is it? Why is it like this and that?. Something that a professional doctor can answer specifically an OB-GYNE.
As early as 13-15 years old, you can visit an OB-GYNE already, but of course being there lining up outside the clinic waiting for your turn together with other patients like pregnant women is kinda awkward
. But I must tell you, going to an OB-GYNE is the best way for your questions about your intimate area be answered.
It is about standing up for yourself, disregarding the sense or feeling of embarrassment for the sake of educating yourself about your intimate area.
Part of the intimate area in a woman’s life is “Red Days” or what we call “Menstruation”. During your period, you are very prone to infection, itchiness and irritation.That is why choosing the right feminine wash is very crucial and important.
Why is a woman prone to infection during “RED Days”?
Normal vaginal pH level is 3.5 to 4.5 and during your period your vaginal pH becomes elevated by menstrual fluids. The changing pH is one of the reasons why women is prone to infections during their period.
When pH becomes elevated, the vaginal environment shifts in favor of the pathogenic bacteria. This can allow unwanted bacteria to cause odor, irritation and possibly infection. Elevated pH is one of the key factors doctors look for when diagnosing vaginal infections. Maintaining vaginal pH within the healthy range can help reduce risk of infections.
“Women should change their sanitary napkins 4-6 times a day during heavy days, 3-4 times on moderate to light days, this can help reduce the risk of infection during your menses because bacteria grows fast on wet area.” said Dr. Laila Reyes.
