Importance of Feminine Hygiene

Menstrual hygiene means careful washing, changing and proper cleaning. Some of the menstrual hygiene points to keep in mind are: 

  • Regular change of sanitary pads or tampons  

  • Washing yourself thoroughly

  • Wearing 100 percent cotton underwear

  • Taking showers regularly and keeping the area hygienically clean

  • Use mild soap and warm water to clean the area and keep it odorless

  • Do not use douches or perfumed products during your menstrual cycle and wear loose, comfortable clothing

Types of Feminine Hygiene Products

Feminine Hygiene products include sanitary napkins, tampons and menstrual cups. Other feminine hygiene and care products are vaginal lubricants, pantiliners and different types of body care solutions. 

  • Tampons, sanitary pads and menstrual cups are needed on a regular basis. Sanitary pads and tampons are designed to provide strong absorbency and keep you worry-free about strike-through. Menstrual cups collect the monthly menstrual flow and can remain in the body for almost 12 hours.  

  • Since incontinence can be a niggling problem with a lot of women, there are bladder control pads which have different levels of absorbency. Pantiliners provide the right kind of protection to those who suffer from light incontinence experiencing dribble occasionally. They are light on the body and provide total protection. 

  • Personal lubricants and moisturizing personal wash are other popular feminine hygiene products. There is a whole supply of lubricants that are used to combat vaginal dryness. They lubricate the vaginal area producing a warm sensation and allowing pain-free intimacy. Maintain cleanliness and freshness of intimate body areas with personal moisturizing wash which help cleanse, refresh and eliminate odor. These items do not contain artificial fragrances and are safe to use. 

  • Alternately, you can use wet wipes with lactic acid to clean the intimate areas. These wipes stabilize the pH of the skin and prevent irritations.
