Your vagina is self cleaning. You should not introduce anything into your vagina, such as soap or douches. It cleans away your body's natural 'good' bacteria that your body uses to cleanse itself and keep your ph levels in check. Out of whack ph levels can lead to yeast infections.

We use all natural olive soap and I sometimes use my fingers to clean the area. We also have a shower head that is detachable so that I can direct water to then wash the suds out when I'm finished.

you can use gynae guard wash get it from clicks or any pharmacy.and please don't digg in there according to my gynea it's not healthy at all. i know sometimes we feel the need to but don't.gynae guard also helps with any bad odour or itchying and is safe for teenages as well as pregnant women.
