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.
Good personal hygiene refers to how we take care of ourselves and our bodies in order to keep them clean and free of germs and odors . Having good personal hygiene is simple, and most of the things we we start learning from an early age. These things include; washing your hands after using the toilet, brushing your teeth and bathing everyday among others. As we get older however, we can sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves. Especially with no parents or teachers reminding us what to do. Which is why it is important to remind ourselves to do these things. Not only to keep us looking good but also healthy.
