Many women buy lacy lingerie. Imagine how good they look at the store and how sexy they make you feel when they are completing their purpose during a date. Many women prefer to wear them all the time. They make them feel good and confident, and we sometimes they cost a little less. But the truth is that lace underwear do not always agree with your sensitive lady parts. Lace, being a synthetic artificial fabric, does not allow you skin to breathe properly all the time. As a result to that you could be contracted by any number of infections such as candidiasis. That is why the best fabric recommended for your underwear is good old cotton. There is no argument that cotton is not as cute and sexy as a lacy underwear but it is much healthier and a lot kinder to your nether region. Save the lacy underwear for a special occasion, where they will appreciated by someone other than yourself, and give your lady parts the air that they need.
For women as well as men walking around with no underwear give us a great sense of freedom. On our everyday life it is not the best idea to walk around commando.

Protection during intercourse is very important. Most women act excellently when they insist on their partner using a condom. But what most women do not know is that condoms can sometimes leave behind residue, in the vaginal area. The same goes for the tampons that women use during their time of the month. Although it sound normal and sometimes even easy women must not try to clean their cavity on their own. There is a danger that you might injure yourself while cleansing or worse be infected by the product you might be using. There is nothing for women to worry about in this case. A woman’s vagina has a defense system of it’s own. During the monthly cycle and the everyday discharges the residue from the condoms, tampons or any other, are removed from the area via natural process. So there is nothing to worry about.
Because of the fact that most women do not know as much as they should about their nether region and they do not care to make a certain research they are under the impression that they must take care of that region with exactly the same way as they do the rest of their body. Therefore many times, out of pure ignorance, they use chemical soaps and perfumed body washes to clean that area as they do with all the other regions on their body. What they no know however is that the vagina is self-cleaning. The vulva, meaning the outer part of the region, is not self-cleaning and does require some attention. But not as often as the rest of the body. Usually once every two days and most definitely without the use of chemical soapy products. Plenty of clean water can do the trick and if you wish to use something more then try to find as many natural and non-processed products as possible.
Most people nowadays consume certain antibiotics in order to kill bacteria and germs. Even though western medicine has made our lives much easier, over consumption of antibiotics can result to killing the good bacteria in our cavity that are responsible for the proper function of our gut. That leaves a free space for the yeast to multiply and us end up having a terrible yeast infection out of nowhere.

Regardless of your whereabouts try to always have access to some toilet paper. Whether you carry it with you or there is some near you make sure you keep that area clean and dry.
Even if it is highly recommended and advertised pretty much everywhere, most women neglect to pay a visit to their gynecologist. They think that they are completely healthy there for missing an appointment is not such a big deal. Yes, you are healthy now and good for you for taking care of yourself. But in the future things might change. It is true that there are some infection that will appear and will be dealt with right then and there, but you must always remember that in many cases a good and thorough checkup can get you a long way.
