V Basics

Over 50% of women are unable to identify the vagina and vulva.

When making decisions about your intimate health, an informed decision is the best decision. This starts with understanding your unique anatomy. The vulva is the correct name for the external parts of the female genitalia. This includes the opening of the vagina, the labia majora (outer lips), the labia minora (inner lips), and the clitoris. The vagina connects the vulva to the cervix. The vagina changes during sex, childbirth, throughout the menstrual cycle, with age and different life stages.

How should I properly care for my vagina and vulva?

Like the rest of your body, it is important to avoid harsh products that may contain harmful chemicals. Your vagina is self-cleaning, which means you don’t need to add soap to this area. In fact, this can impact your delicate pH level. A normal vaginal pH level is between 3.8 and 4.5, which is moderately acidic. When your pH is imbalanced, it can cause severe discomfort, infection, and even odor. Be sure to use gentle, unscented creams designed for your vulva and avoid soap near your vaginal opening.
