Excessive intimate hygiene

Excessive intimate hygiene can be just as harmful as insufficient hygiene; it comes down to finding a healthy middle course.

  • Washing several times a day
  • Vaginal douching
  • Hygiene sprays for the intimate area
  • Directing strong jets of water onto your intimate area
