Vaginal Health

Vaginal Health

Many females grow up thinking their body is taboo. Meaning they cannot discuss their anatomy or good vaginal health. As a result we grow up learning the wrong things to do, and do more harm than good to our body. I came across an article by a Gynecologists named Dr. Lauren Streicher of Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopause.

From the way we cleanse ourselves to how we lubricate ourselves for sexual...
