Tips for intimate care

Here's a “do and don’t” list for intimate care.

Do use a specific product for intimate hygiene. The use of ordinary soaps can be too aggressive
  for your intimate area and can cause the skin to dry out.
Don't be excessive with intimate hygiene: wash once or twice a day. Too frequent washing
  may alter the natural defense mechanism of the mucous membranes.
Do wash and wipe from front to back not vice versa, to avoid transferring germs from fecal origin.
Don't wear synthetic underwear and tight pants.
Do change sanitary towels and tampons regularly during your period.
Do have an annual check-up with your gynecologist.
