Not many women are willing to talk about their vaginal discharge, although this is an important sign of woman's health. Is it normal to have vaginal discharge? What color and consistency should vaginal discharge look like? What can be a sign of infection? These questions are among most vital to women of all ages.

1. Vaginal discharge is normal


Having vaginal discharge is completely normal, unless it has unusual color and consistency. The glands inside the vagina and the cervix produce fluid that eliminates dead cells and bacteria, which is why vagina is self-cleaning and does not require douching or other cleaning methods.

Imagine being stuck somewhere in the middle of your trip with no water to clean yourself. In this case you will probably need a DryBath, the innovative gel that makes you fresh and clean without water. The gel was developed by Ludwick Marishane, student from South Africa, who was inspired by his friend being too lazy to use a shower, especially when there is no hot water available.

The DryBath is exactly what you need to clean youself without bathing.

Many women use feminine sprays because they are concerned about vaginal odor. However, most doctors discourage the use of feminine sprays and deodorants, because some of them may disturb the normal pH of the vagina and normal balance of the organisms.

Scented products like feminine sprays, perfumes, scented pads and tampons may actually lead to yeast infection. The vaginal odor may be a sign of vaginal infection and feminine sprays and deodorants may mask it or even make the condition worse.
