8 Facts You didn't Know About Vagina

Tuesday, June 7, 2022 | views Last Updated 2022-06-08T03:53:49Z

 According to "Everyday Health", The vagina is one of the most delicate organs in the body of a woman. It refers to a muscular canal covered with nerves and mucus membranes. It attaches the uterus and cervix to the outside of the body, thereby permitting menstruation, intercourse, and childbirth. Aside from these functions, do you know that there are other facts attached to the vagina? Some of them include; 

. Your vagina cleans itself.

The vagina is a miraculous wonder that takes care of itself. It is a completely self-cleaning organ, expelling toxins and bacteria all on its own. Do not ever wash your vagina with soap. Even mild soap can cause irritation and infection. If you use soap on the inner lips of your vagina, you could wind up with bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection, not to mention a foul odor, itching, or irritation.

. What you eat can affect your vagina.

Another way to keep the balance of your vaginal pH within the healthy range: eat foods associated with good vagina health, like yogurt. 

. Your vagina grows in size when aroused.

The vagina is nothing if not accommodating. According to Rankin, the average length of a vagina is three to four inches long, but it can double in size. After arousal, the upper portion of the vagina elongates, pushing the cervix and uterus slightly deeper into your body to make room for penetration.

. Vaginas do not get “loose”

This is a wild myth designed to keep women chaste. If you’re afraid of your vagina getting looser if you have too much s£x, you might not have s£x. We’re calling major BS on this one.

The vagina is a muscle. A very strong one. It can stretch to push out a baby’s head and then return to its original size. Just like every single muscle in the human body, the only thing that causes vaginal loosening is the ravages of time and gravity.

. Not everyone who has a vagina is a woman.

A person's sexual organs are not an indicator of their gender, and it's harmful to assume so. A person born with a vagina may also identify as a trans man, male, non-binary, gender fluid, or gender non-conforming.

. Not all women have a hymen.

The thin tissue associated with virginity is called hymen and is not present in all women. It may break in some women through rigorous exercising, hormonal disturbances, or intercourse. This thin tissue is 1 to 2 cm long and covers the vaginal opening. Since it is not present in all women, the usual hymen-related issues like bleeding for the first time are subjective.

. Getting older can affect the vagina.

After years of having periods and maybe children, the ovaries stop producing eggs, and menstruation stops. The number of hormones in the body that keep women fertile drops dramatically - and low levels of estrogen, in particular, affect the vagina and vulva.

These tissues, which were once kept moist with mucus, can atrophy, and the resulting dryness can cause pain during s£x because of a lack of lubrication.

. Every vagina is different.

While we’re on the subject of kindness. Let’s celebrate the difference between our bodies. No two vaginas are the same and there is no ‘normal-looking' vagina.
