I never understood people who waxed down there. The idea of putting hot wax, or even a razor so close to your vagina just scared me. “Why do that to yourself?” I thought. Until I had my first serious boyfriend who happened to liked me waxed. Although I was completely against it, I tried it. “What’s the worst that could happen?” I told myself.
Every now and then as a women you can start to experience a strange odor coming from your vagina. Whilst vaginal odor isn’t always something to worry about, there are some things to be on the look out for if you experience a funny smell.
The vagina is one of the most sensitive parts of our body. Which is why it’s important that we keep it clean at all times. Our vagina has a natural acidic pH level which must be kept at a normal level for good self cleaning. The term “pH” stands for power of hydrogen and is the measurement of hydrogen in the body. Not only that but vaginas also have good bacteria that fights infections. During our menstrual cycle the vagina’s pH level increases because blood has a pH level of 7.4. It can also increase during sex as semen has a pH level of 7.1 to 8.
