When it comes to maintaining our youthfulness and vibrancy, we commonly focus on healthy diets, making sure we stay active, and of course, skin care and beauty products (and perhaps a little cosmetic pick-me-up such as Botox – don’t worry, we won’t tell!). We spend time and money to look and feel our best and rightfully so. But how often do you consider the well-being of your lady parts? Just like the rest of your body, preserving the performance and appearance of your intimate area is an important part of overall wellness. In the same way that our confidence gets a boost when we do something nice for our bodies or looks, our contentment and enjoyment of life can be improved by paying a little attention to our most private area too! Here are a few ways you can help keep your vagina healthy and at peak performance:
- A Healthy Diet – A properly balanced diet is essential for keeping energy levels up and staying active, which in turn, helps vaginal health. Eat plenty of fruits, veggies, and lean, protein-rich foods.
- Kegel Exercises – Healthy and strong pelvic floor muscles not only support the pelvic organs and help prevent organ prolapse, but they are also responsible for the tightness of our vaginas and enhancing our sexual pleasure. Kegels are performed by “clamping” down (as if trying to stop the flow of urine), holding for approximately 5 seconds, and releasing. Dr. Brady recommends 10 sets of 10 kegels daily for maximum muscle tone.
- Orgasm – Hands down the most pleasurable way to vaginal health, reaching climax contracts the pelvic floor muscles, giving them a workout and helping to tighten the vagina.
- Vaginal Rejuvenation – There are instances when more assistance is needed, and that’s where vaginal rejuvenation procedures can help. Whether due to childbirth, the aging process or simply natural-born anatomy, stretched vaginal contours can lead to loss of sensation during intercourse. In some cases, even soreness or pain occurs during sex. Vaginal rejuvenation can help strengthen a woman’s vagina as well as enhance the appearance for maximum vaginal health.
