Today’s women want to look good and feel good; we want to maintain youthfulness and vibrancy. We workout and diet, get facials and peels, purchase the latest skin care and beauty products, including a little cosmetic treatment such as Botox or Juvederm now and then. Women spend time and money to look and feel good. But how often do we consider the well-being of our feminine parts? Just like the rest of our body, preserving the performance and appearance of our intimate area is an important part of overall wellness. In the same way that our confidence gets a boost when we do something nice for our bodies or looks, our contentment and enjoyment of life can be improved by paying a little attention to our most private area too!
Here are a few ways you can help keep your vagina healthy and at peak performance:
Hormonal Balance – Along with regular GYN exams and pap smears, this factor is essential for vaginal health and good function. As a woman ages, so does her vagina leading to vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, infection, decreased sexual function and atrophy. In menopausal women, Dr. Serrão believes that hormonal balance is imperative to vaginal rejuvenation and one must consider bio-identical hormonal replacement therapy for a healthier vagina and happier life.
A Healthy Diet – A properly balanced diet is essential for keeping energy levels up and staying active, which in turn, helps vaginal health. Eat plenty of fruits, veggies, and lean, protein-rich foods.
Kegel Exercises – Healthy and strong pelvic floor muscles not only support the pelvic organs and help prevent organ prolapse, but they are also responsible for the tightness of our vaginas, enhancing our sexual pleasure. Kegels are performed by “squeezing” the vaginal area tight (like you are trying to stop the flow of urine), holding it for approximately 5 seconds, and then releasing the “squeeze.” Dr. Serrão recommends 4 to 6 kegels every hour whenever you can do them. It is the only exercise that you can perform without anyone knowing what you are doing.
Orgasm – Hands down, the most pleasurable way to vaginal health, reaching climax contracts the pelvic floor muscles, giving them a workout and helps to tighten the vagina. It is indeed an exercise we don’t mind doing!
Vaginal Rejuvenation – There are instances when more assistance is needed, and that’s where vaginal rejuvenation procedures can help. Whether due to childbirth, the aging process or simply natural-born anatomy, stretched vaginal contours can lead to loss of sensation during intercourse. In some cases, even soreness or pain occurs during sex. Vaginal rejuvenation can help strengthen a woman’s vagina as well as enhance the appearance for maximum vaginal health.
