What we learn in middle school about women’s health is, well, unfortunately pretty vague … “you’re going to get your period,” “don’t have unprotected sex,” and “avoid douching” pretty much sums up the extent of what young women are taught in class. The truly important facts and questions are typically left for us to learn and educate ourselves. Like what are the ideal pH levels or how do we properly care for our vaginas during and after each cycle.
Since there’s a lot of information online (some helpful and some misleading), we wanted to create a post that hosts our top vaginal health stories we’ve shared on Poosh all in one place.
So, welcome, welcome to our handy guide on simple ways to keep your vagina healthy and happy. Read on to bookmark our women’s wellness words of advice.
