7 Things To Do If Your Vagina Is Vulnerable To Infection.

A vaginal infection is a fungal infection that leads to the irritation, discharge and intense itchiness of the female organ and the tissues at the female organ opening.

This condition affects about 3 out of 4 women at a certain point in their lifetimes.

According to the publication of VeryWellHealth, typically, the female organ has a healthy balance of yeast and bacteria, but some kind of factors can throw that balance off. If you are vulnerable to vaginal infections, try the following tips to help keep the environment in your private organ balanced:

1. Put on underwear that has a cotton crotch.

2. Don't wear tight pantyhose, leggings, or jeans.

3. Stay away from female organ douches.

4. Avoid using scented feminine products or toilet paper.

5. Try to change your tampons, liners, and pads always.

6. Remove wet clothes from your body as soon as possible.

7. Make sure you always wipe from front to back.
