12 Weird Things Women Do to Their Vaginas


Having a vagina is like having to carry around a high maintenance model who is very temperamental. You always are worried about what materials you put on her. What styles look best and she always has to have the best clothing. You have to be careful with cutting her hair. You have to be sure to take her to the doctor each year for a check up. You can’t just shove things in her, but sometimes you have no choice.  I’ve spent years inspecting my vagina from every possible angle and she still leaves me guessing, “Okay, what’s next?”   Have you ever taken a look at your own “personal space” A lot of women never do, and that’s so strange to me. So far, I’ve mastered  to predict my menstrual cycle to a reasonable degree of accuracy. It still baffles me that I am  supposed to go about my day and do all of your things without being distracted by the sensation of liquid leaving your body and that the fact that I am shedding the entire lining of my uterus . Men really have no clue what we women go through unless they are a OBGYN doctor.  I’m still trying to figure everything else out.  Also, the fact it’s so elastic. It stretches to accommodate squeezing out a baby, and yet in most cases, it has no trouble contracting back to its original size.  Our vaginas are very talented in the sense that she is very musical . She likes to queef and I can’t get her to stop. No reason to be alarmed  queefing is  only air trapped in the vagina but during yoga, sex or just walking around can be a bit much. Clearly I can’t be the only person left on this planet that feels a little perplexed by her attitude to be in complete control all the time.  On a more serious note. let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. The truth is The vagina comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Vagina’s are naturally wet, for the most part. That’s just part of the our ordeal. Normal vaginal discharge is a self-cleaning method. (No reason to be alarmed there)  Another question.  Why is it so taboo to call a vagina, a vagina? Why do people have to pick different nick names instead of calling it what it is for instance personal space ,snatch, vajayjay, coochie, lucy, cootie-cat, hoo-ha, lady parts, beaver, punani, love taco , twat and I could go on and on with a ton of more nick names.

It all starts with puberty. The moment we see that 1st hair. We are so excited and why?! We have no clue of the things ahead of us.  We start to become very smelly from head to toe. It is  normal and healthy for you to have some vaginal odor. However, strong vaginal odor can be the result of douching, excessive washing, wearing clothes that are too tight and certain chemicals in your soaps, bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and  or sexually transmitted diseases. This strong odor can become embarrassing.

If you have symptoms like redness, itching, burning and irritation in the vaginal area that can be a  problem is due to infection. For example, a fishy odor can be caused by bacterial vaginosis. Your OBGYN can perform tests to see what is the underlying problem of your odor.  Even if, you OBGYN gives her a clean bill of health  but yet you still are experiencing  vaginal odor which is very embarrassing. Don’t be alarmed, there are many natural remedies to help treat the odor.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

(brought to you by Top Ten Home remedies)

Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can be used to fight vaginal odor. In fact, taking a bath with apple cider vinegar is one of the simplest ways to get rid of the bad odor. This will help fight off the toxins and bacteria that cause vaginal odor. It will also help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora.

  • Mix two cups of apple cider vinegar in warm bath water. Soak in it for about 20 minutes. Follow this remedy several times a week to get quick results.
  • You can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

  1. Add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater.
  2. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes.
  3. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

3. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal odor is yogurt. Yogurt is rich in lactobacillus bacteria, which help fight candida infection (one of the most common causes of vaginal odor) and restore the normal vaginal pH level. Once the pH level is balanced, the vaginal odor will be gone.

  • Eat two cups of unsweetened, plain yogurt daily. You can also take probiotic supplements.
  • Another option is to soak a all natural tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your body. Leave it in for a few hours, and rinse the area thoroughly after removing the tampon.
  • Another option is to freeze yogurt in a long ice cube where you can insert it in your vagina and allow it to melt.

4. White Vinegar

White vinegar has the power to neutralize odors by breaking down odor proteins. A white vinegar rinse will help eliminate vaginal odor. It will also help restore pH levels in the vagina.

  1. Mix one-half cup each of white vinegar and salt in lukewarm bath water.
  2. Soak in it for a few minutes.
  3. Follow this remedy several times a week.

5. Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibiotic that can be great for dealing with vaginal infections as well as vaginal odor. The antifungal properties present in garlic will help fight a yeast infection and help your body get rid of bad bacteria.

  • Eat garlic in raw or cooked form on a daily basis. You can eat one or two raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. You can also add garlic cloves or its paste to your dishes and salads.
  • Another option is to put a piece of garlic in the vagina for an hour or two. Do this daily or a few times a week until you get rid of the problem.

Additional Tips

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins and harmful bacteria from the body. It will also help ward off a variety of health issues.
  • Avoid refined carbohydrates, caffeine and sugary drinks; sugar stimulates yeast production.
  • Check for possible signs of infection that could be causing this problem.
  • Maintain proper personal hygiene.
  • Wear 100 percent cotton panties that allow air circulation and help keep the vulva ventilated, thus avoiding excessive perspiration.
  • Change pads, tampons, and panty-liners frequently.
  • Avoid using scented products down there as they may contribute to unbalanced vaginal pH.
  • If the problem mostly occurs after intercourse then simply wash the vagina with mild soap and water after sex.
  • Practice safe sex.
  • At times, women simply do not like the normal vaginal odor caused by vaginal secretions. However, there is nothing bad about it, you just need to respect your body and embrace your natural odor.


Weird things women do their Vagina

Written by ECOSALON

1. You can steam it
Yep, vaginal steaming is a thing. You apparently pick out herbs – you know, like you do for asparagus – that help to detox and heal any vaginal imbalances. But how exactly do you know if you’re walking around with an imbalanced vagina?

2. You can knit with it
This is not a drill.

3. You can keep it cool
There’s underwear that works as central air for your vag to keep it from overheating – the technology apparently reduces your down-there temperature by three degrees. Not sure, but your boyfriend’s peen might have to wear a light jacket the next time you fool around.

4. You can buy it a hat
The Vaj-J Visor is a little hat that protects your vagina while shaving, waxing or tanning. It comes in a wide variety of colors – because if your visor clashed with your razor, that would be weird.

5. You can dye it
This might be taking the whole carpet-and-drapes thing with a Fun Betty kit.

6. You can whiten it
According to women who clearly spend too much time studying their vaginas, it’s better for your vagina to be as pale as a creepy china doll: Vaginal whitening is all the rage in places like Thailand and India, where you essentially bleach your lady bits and make them look so pale they practically glow in the dark.

7. You can keep it minty fresh
I wish I was joking, but unfortunately vaginal mints do exist (otherwise known as a yeast infection waiting to happen).

8. You can give it injections
Fillers aren’t just for your face anymore: Women are injecting collagen into their cooch to inflate their g-spot, making it super sensitive to sexual stimulation. You know what else inflates your g-spot? A guy who knows what he’s doing.

9. You can give it a makeover
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation runs for between $4,000 and $20,000 and aims to make a woman’s vagina tighter than a vice-grip – you know, to make up for years of promiscuity and super-size vibrators. There’s also a more budget friendly option: “Wanna Be Tight” Vaginal Shrink Gel. I wanna be drunk.

10. You can decorate it
Like the college guy hanging out at a high school party, vajazzling is still around – especially useful if your guy is distracted by shiny things.

11. You can remodel it
If you’re looking for a new pair of drapes, a labiaplasty will give your otherwise floppy, uneven vaginal opening a more proportioned, feminine look… for $5,000 or more.

12. You can give it a facial
Vajacials (vagina facials) are a 50-minute beauty “essential” where your nether regions are plucked, cleansed, moisturized and covered in a fruit-flavored mask. Because in order to have good sex, you have to smell like a scented candle.

13. If you think Your Vagina is Too Loose
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a trademarked phrase that refers to a practice developed and popularized by Dr. David Matlock, who’s made several appearances on the E! channel’s plastic surgery reality show, Dr.90210. Matlock and other doctors who carry out LVR claim that the $4,000 to $20,000 procedure makes women’s vaginas tighter, thus increasing sexual pleasure.

But many doctors disagree. The American Urogynocology Society won’t endorse it. And the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists cautioned in a 2007 statement that women seeking “designer vaginas” should be “informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.” Sexy!

14. If you think  Your Vagina is Ugly
Labiaplasty drastically reduces the labia, the protruding lips that surround the opening of the vagina. Why would you want to do this? Because your labia are  “unequal,” “elongated,” “large,” “irregular,” “floppy,” and “unfeminine.” These are just some of the unflattering adjectives bandied about on the Web sites of surgeons who offer this procedure. Luckily, with the use of lasers and scalpels, your vagina can be made “prettier,” “better proportioned,” “youthful,” and achieve “the true Playboy aesthetic look.” How much will it cost you to make your labia proportional and feminine? About $5,000 or more.

      With you being pregnant, I would contact my doctor and see what they suggest. I am not a doctor & I don’t know if you have a discharge or not. You could have Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) The symptoms: Bacterial vaginosis, an infection caused by an imbalance in the bacteria normally found in the vagina, is sometimes asymptomatic, but it can produce a fishy-smelling discharge that is most noticeable after sex. Itching and/or burning may accompany it…. Go see your doctor to be safe and they can fix whatever is going on with you. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
