Owing to hormonal fluctuations, the intimate region is more vulnerable to prolonged vaginal discharge, irritation, and itching during breastfeeding, which adds to the pain. Acidic variations in the genital cavity are caused by pregnancy hormones. It's important to have an intimate wash in your personal grooming regimen to preserve the intimate area's acidic ph balance. Maintaining vaginal hygiene is crucial for women both before and during their pregnancies. Soap and water aren't the best option because soap's alkaline nature disrupts the vaginal ph equilibrium and may be too rough.
