10 Simple Tips for a Happy Vagina

Your vagina is the muscular tube that connects your vulvar opening to your cervix and uterus. The vagina has an incredible self-cleaning and lubricating body part. It maintains an optimum inner environment by utilizing your body’s estrogen hormone and with the help of good bacteria(lactobacilli) that are naturally present in the vaginal wall. Any change in this delicate balance can lead to vaginal infections, dryness, or other problems. A well-balanced vaginal environment can result in great sexual health, reduced risks of vaginal and uterine infections, decreased vaginal dryness or irritation, and feeling comfortable in your body.
