7 habits causing vaginal infections

7 habits causing vaginal infections



- can create bacteria ,candida overgrowth by allowing pathogens to multiply on the vaginal lining. Tampons fibers can scratch the vaginal lining, causing tears that lead to bacterial infections.


  1. IUDS


-can create hormonal imbalance in the body when releasing synthetic hormones. Bacteria/candida/ pathogens like to cluster onto IUDS to create biofilms. Biofilms on IUDS causes persistent vaginal infections.


  1. Chemical Ph balancers+ vaginal washes

 - damages the vaginal protective barriers by allowing toxic chemicals to absorb into the vaginal lining. Toxic chemicals disrupts hormonal balance and can cause infertility.


  1. Daily Tobacco leaf/vape use

- nicotine in tobacco products eliminates the good bacteria "Lactobacillus" in our vaginal flora. When the good bacteria is depleted in the body, our immune defenses are weak to pathogens causing persistent infections.


  1. Daily wine/alcohol consumption

 -High in sugar, alcoholic beverages weakens our immune defenses to pathogens and feeds bacteria, candida, viruses and parasites growth in the body.


1.Antibiotic use

- eliminates the good bacteria defenses in the gut + vaginal flora up to 6 months and creates resistant bacteria/candida in the body. Antibiotics aren't efficient with eliminating biofilms leading to persistent vaginal infections.


  1. Nylon, Spandex, Polyester panties

 - are non-breathable, chemically processed fabrics. These fabrics create a humid environment triggering bacteria/candida to populate, triggering vulva itching/dryness. 


Good habits that create vaginal balance

and prevent infections

  1. Use organic pads
  2. Learn how to track your menstrual cycle
  3. Wash the Vulva with warm water and a cloth
  4. Lessen/avoid tobacco products use
  5. Lessen/avoid alcohol use
