A woman’s biological growth is so closely connected to her reproductive organs. Yet, we are so busy looking after our near and dear ones, juggling careers, relationships and daily chores that we tend to often ignore things like a ‘small itch there’.
But these small problems are really uncomfortable, they hold us back in our daily lives. They could even flare up into bigger problems later and a lot of avoidable visits to the gynaecologist!
If you have a problem ‘down below’, it could be because of many reasons.
All these problems are treatable and can even be prevented if you follow a daily hygiene routine through an intimate wash or foam, intimate powder or a vaginal cream.
Get past these nagging little feminine problems, Clean & Dry will tell you how.
Remember the biology class that we giggled through in school?
Here’s a quick re-cap of that class:
Your vulva is the external visible part of your genitals. This includes your pubic mound and hair, labia, clitoris, the opening to your vagina, and urethra (the opening to your bladder).
Your vagina is the tube which leads from your cervix to your vulva. It’s where the man’s penis goes during sex and it’s also the exit for the blood when you’re having a period. The lining of a healthy vagina should be pink and moist, and resemble the inside of your mouth. Right at the top of your vagina, protruding into it, is your cervix, the lowest part of the uterus or womb.
Your uterus (or womb) is only the size of a light bulb when you're not pregnant. It has an inner lining, called the endometrium, which increases during your cycle and is then shed as a period if you don't become pregnant.
Your Fallopian tubes are two funnel shaped tubes, around 10 cm long. They are connected to the uterus and wait to catch an egg as it's released from an ovary.
Your ovaries produce eggs when they receive hormonal messages from the brain. Once it meets a sperm, the fertilized egg takes about five days to travel along the fallopian tube and into the womb; this fertilized egg is what grows into a baby.
