Women, especially teens, don’t give importance to the vaginas that are temperamental or funky during the summer things. Such neglect is horribly wrong. Vaginal neglect is not a good thing. Vaginas function quite well in all seasons. Really many women run a clinic for vulvovaginal disorders when it is hot. The only possible issue that women might confront during the summer months is with their vulva if they start a new hair removal technique or do more hair removal. This can lead to ingrown hairs, injuries, and an increased risk of sexually transmitted infections.
If summer vagina were a thing that only modern wipes and salves could not cure properly. It is said that “The heat of the summer can make your vagina drier, causing it to be sensitive and temperamental. Add to that a moist bathing suit and your vag just might have a vaginal panic attack.”
A vagina cannot dry out only because of the heat. Here may lie many reasons behind the vaginal irritation or vulva problems. Vaginal dryness or the sensation of vaginal dryness can be the result of low estrogen, be a medication side effect, and even be from a yeast infection. However, the ambient temperature and a wet bathing suit have zero impact on the vaginal ecosystem.
The vagina maintains a steady temperature because it is inside your body and human body temperature only rises to the outside temperature when someone is suffering from heat stroke. Women are not poikilotherms. The vagina maintains moisture because it is constantly producing a discharge.
The vagina is normally moist and warm. If being moist and warm caused infections it would be a serious design flaw. Folds of skin that rub together can chafe and lead to overgrowth of bacteria and yeast, but that is in the groin or sometimes the labia. Neither of those areas is the vagina.
The vaginal pH is maintained by estrogen, lactobacilli and glycogen. None of these are affected by a wet bathing.
Wet bathing does not cause pH imbalance or yeast infections. If you are wearing tight, wet clothes you may get some vulvar irritation which could be mistaken for a vaginal yeast infection, but vaginal yeast infections are almost always a vaginal event. External yeast infections on the vulva, which are much less common, are also not due to wet bathing suits.
Skin bacteria on your vulva does not cause vaginal infections. But, one should not clean the inside of her vagina with a wipe roughly. Wipes are definitely a source of vulvar contact dermatitis and are completely unnecessary. Again, a gynaecologist promoting wipes reinforces the destructive and false idea that the vulva and vagina are dirty.
