6 feminine hygiene mistakes that can sabotage your chances of pregnancy 👇
1 Toxic period products: Your vaginal tissue is very sensitive to these chemicals, which can also mess with your hormones. 🩸
2 Not changing out of sweaty clothes: What likes to grow in hot, sweaty environments? Bugs that cause vaginal infections. 💦
3 Wearing plastic underwear: I can’t think of a better way to starve your yoni of oxygen than to wrap it in underwear made of plastic materials. 🩲
4 Using feminine washes (even pH-friendly ones): Hear this loudly. Your vagina is self-cleaning and does not need soap. ❎
5 Taking random (emphasis on random) probiotics: Because there are specific types of probiotics that will support your vaginal microbiome. 💊
6 Using the wrong personal lubricant: Lubes also contain chemicals that can mess with your vaginal pH and prevent sperm from reaching your egg. 🛑
What CAN you do?
Essentially, the opposite of the above. 😅
✅ Invest in non-toxic period products
✅ Change out of sweaty clothes, STAT
✅ Invest in natural fiber clothing
✅ Let your va-hoo-ha be
✅ Take targeted probiotics (especially if you have recurrent infections)
✅ Swap in a TRULY TTC-safe lubricant
