On women’s health "down there".

1. Get familiar with what you are ‘normally’ like ‘down there’ – from the look, smell and even taste. Check daily when you go to the toilet. This way, you are aware when there is any out of the ordinary vaginal discharge.

2. Avoid bath oils, perfumed soaps and bubble baths.

3. Drink cranberry juice. It contains hippuric acid, which prevents bacteria from clinging to the lining of the urinary tract.

4. Make it a point to excuse yourself to the toilet and urinate before and after sex. This will help flush out bacteria.
