#The duration of this round of heavy rainfall in the South will be longer#

Recently, southern China is experiencing the strongest rainfall process this year.

Extreme weather such as rainstorm, heavy rainstorm and severe rainstorm also began to appear in many places. Once the water level exceeds the warning line, disasters such as waterlogging may occur.

In case of extreme weather, it is suggested that friends should not go out unless necessary. If they are unfortunately trapped in the waterlogging scene, they must find a safe place of refuge in time.

If you soak in sewage for a long time, women's private parts may be infected?

For women, getting caught in the rain during menstruation is even more annoying.

Some women believe that the rain contains a large number of bacteria, which will enter the uterus with their vagina, and then induce various gynecological diseases, threatening their life safety.

In fact, getting caught in the rain does cause some damage to women's bodies, but the statement that "rain pours into the vagina" is very absurd. We don't need to be too nervous about it.

Usually, a woman's vaginal opening is completely closed, and the folds on the inner wall of the vagina fit closely. Without the interference of external factors, a woman's vaginal opening will remain closed.

Even if women are immersed in the rain for a long time, there will be no sewage pouring into the vagina. If an unexpected situation occurs, the micro ecological area inside the female vagina will play its role.

There are a large number of bacteria in the micro ecological area, but these bacteria are beneficial bacteria, which can help the human body resist external bacteria and achieve the effect of preventing gynecological diseases.

Although women's vagina has a special regulation mechanism, which can temporarily help the human body resist external bacteria, this is not a long-term strategy.

How to avoid private infection in case of flood in physiological period?

Although the risk of infection is not large, we still need to do a good job in special times to reduce the risk of private infection.

If conditions permit, you might as well take off your soaked clothes, disinfect your hands first, then rinse your vulva with clean water, remove dirt and dry it in time.

If conditions do not allow, it is advisable to replace sanitary products in time, use sterile wet wipes or paper towels with mineral water, wipe the dirt of vulva first, and replace new nursing products and dry underwear in time to reduce the risk of infection.

Is washing healthier? Actually not at all

The sentence "washing is healthier" in the advertisement makes all kinds of gynecological lotion products deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. Many women think that often cleaning the vagina with lotion can reduce the breeding of bacteria and stay away from the troubles of gynecological diseases. But is this really the case?

In fact, from a medical point of view, this washing method is more detrimental to private health.

Why not recommend women to use gynecological hand sanitizer?

In fact, there are dozens of bacteria in women's vagina, including bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus and other beneficial bacteria.

These beneficial bacteria can inhibit the reproduction of harmful bacteria such as mold, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus. They play an important role in maintaining the balance of flora in the vagina and reducing the occurrence of gynecological diseases.

However, gynecological lotion is mostly alkaline. If used frequently, it can destroy the environment in the vagina and break the balance of flora in the vagina. On the contrary, it will reduce the immunity of the reproductive system, make harmful bacteria easier to reproduce, and more likely to cause gynecological diseases such as vaginitis and cervicitis.

Therefore, for healthy women, when cleaning the vulva, you only need to use clean water. At the same time, it is recommended to take a shower. If you are during menstruation, you can appropriately increase the number of cleaning.

How to judge whether your private parts are infected?

In fact, whether you are successful or not still needs to wait for observation and waiting. After all, the development of the disease takes a certain time.

If you find pruritus on your vulva skin and vaginal mucosa in the next few days, and even continuous burning and pain, as well as thickening, yellowing and peculiar smell of vaginal secretions, consider vaginal infection.

If there is burning at the urethral orifice, urinary pain, abnormal secretion at the urethral orifice, or even hematuria in urination, consider whether it is a urinary system infection.

At this time, the best way is to go to a regular hospital in time.
