We have all have those burning questions (pun intended) about our lady parts that we’re probably too embarrassed to ask our girlfriends or our gynaecologist. So we decided to pull back the curtain once and for all and address these questions head-on.
So, we invited Dr. Amodita Ahuja, Consultant Gynecologist, Obstetrician, and Laparoscopic Surgeon, to host an Ask Me Anything session on the Girl Tribe by MissMalini App. Dr. Amodita answered all the questions the Tribe had on vaginal care, dealing with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and urinary tract infections (UTIs), the dos and don’ts of taking care of your lady parts, safe sexual practices, busting myths, the best hygiene practices, common vaginal problems, exercises and vaccinations to maintain health, and more. Scroll down to read all about it!
If you are having recurrent UTI then get evaluated by a urologist. They’ll evaluate you to figure out the exact reason for the recurrent UTI.
It looks like she is having the postmenopausal syndrome. Because of that, she is having atrophic urethritis and hence has a recurrent burning sensation.
If it is not going away with ointment, then you need to take oral antifungal drugs. The treatment will go on for six weeks. Also, get yourself evaluated for diabetes or insulin resistance.
Pls stop using Vwash because it has high content of lactic acid and thereby makes your vaginal ph more acidic. This would make you prone to fungal infection.
UTIs are very common in girls. Here’s how you can prevent them:
Check if your sanitary pads are made of plastic. Plastic pads can cause a lot of itching. Switch to orgnanic pads.
If there is no gap between your thighs, then get yourself checked for insulin resistance. And if you are developing that, then itching could be because of fungal infection for which you should get yourself examined by a gynaecologist.
