When you get right down there to it, you realize you probably have never had proper education about your vagina. You maybe were even taught to call it something other than your vagina for example flower, Hoo-Hoo or what’s trending now is ladybits.  If people can’t call your ladybits by it’s rightful and anatomically correct name, the vagina, then how are you supposed to understand it’s amazing characteristics?

The vagina is a hollow muscular organ that receives pleasure and also gives life as this is the first pathway through which most lives travel.  The vagina is like a self-cleaning oven, so there is never a need to buy soap or vagina wash. The vagina takes care of herself.

The clitoris is tucked underneath a hood connected to the vagina. The clitoris serves no other purpose than for ultimate pleasure. The clitoris comes in many sizes, no two are alike (much like vaginas), but all are beautiful. When healthy, vaginas are pink and lubricated with good turgor and elasticity. The elasticity is what allows for the receipt of the penis for penetrative heterosexual sex or even more impressive, the birth of a baby. Lubrication and stretching are key.

You can see the vagina is vital to our lives and yet we rarely discuss it. It is important to know that estrogen is the hormone regulator of the vagina which means it keeps all of these processes in play. When the estrogen receptors in the vagina decrease after the birth of a baby, or when a woman is on the pill, or in menopause, vaginal dryness may set in, elasticity decreases, and the pleasure may plummet. If estrogen is lacking, a woman may take longer to experience orgasm.

That is why it is just as important to moisturize your vagina as it is your face! I recommend women use a personal moisturizer like RepaGyn a hormone-free ovule that is inserted into the vagina to maintain vaginal lubrication and keep vaginal tissues youthful. We are trying to keep everything else youthful these days (hello botox and fillers for our fine lines and wrinkles) and the same holds true for the vagina.

So remember ladies, when you head to the drugstore to get a moisturizer for your skin in these dry cold days of winter, pick up some RepaGyn at the drugstore because it is available over the counter for your flower, I mean hoo-hoo, ladybits, VAGINA! If you would like me to send you RepaGyn samples, please email me at nursetalk@hotmail.com
