So how many of you stick your finger up in your vagina to clean it?

I've never heard that before, I was always taught to wash the outside meaning the lips and vulva but not actually INSIDE the vagina.

Somehow I doubt that.

The vagina is self cleaning. You arent supposed to clean inside your vagina. The outer genitals can be cleaned and are the source of any odor (unless you have an infection). There is a delicate ph balance and.healthy bacteria level. Any "cleaning" can mess with that and cause problems.

Wow... I thought every woman knew this.

Actually, last yeast infection I got was when I was pregnant. That was 7 yrs ago. And the Doctor said that yeast infections were normal during pregnancy.

So... I'd like to say... I have a pretty clean vagina :)

And how many yeast and bacterial infections do you get a year?

You clean your vagina with your finger?!? That is REALLY not good for you.

Quoting Anonymous:

I don't know what the hell you do with your vag... But I CLEAN and WASH my vagina while I'm on my period. I put my finger in and clean it out.

Gah... I bet your vag smells like ASS

Quoting Anonymous:

how does wearing a tampon stop you from cleaning your junk...

you shouldn't be cleaning the inside of your vag.

Quoting Anonymous:

What's nasty is that you don't wash your junk out while you shower? ESP when you're on your period??!!

WTH?!!!

That's actually kind of bad.  It'll kill the good bacteria too.  Douching really isn't that great of idea either for the same reason and you are also introducing new bad bacteria if you're not careful.  :/

Check out the you don't pee in the shower thread, women are saying you can't wear a tampon in the shower because you need to clean up inside your vagina and you can't do that with a tampon in.

Did this stem from the peeing in the shower post? The whole not feeling clean if showering with tampon? That's the only thing I've read today that I think could've led to this.
