Don't douch: Normally, there isn't anything you need to do to keep the vagina clean besides the simple feminine hygiene. Excessive cleansing actually will cause more trouble. Don't douch. The vagina has the ability to maintain its own health quite well. If u r ill and treated with antibiotics etc..Probiotics/yogurt may help maintain its health. Otherwise, do nothing beside hygiene. Good luck.
