Women are blessed by the heavens or universe, whichever you prefer, with a womb and a vagina to conceive, carry, nourish, and deliver another human being. That’s insanely incredible, right?
This is why we need to take good care of ourselves, especially our lady parts.
Here’s a list of what and what not to eat for your hooha.
Yogurt’s nutritional power goes beyond its high levels of calcium and protein. It’s a probiotic, meaning it contains live bacteria cultures. And varieties that contain a bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus may help keep the pH of the vagina in the acidic range, driving down the risk of yeast and other types of infection, says Alyssa Dweck, MD, a New York–based ob-gyn and co-author of The Complete A to Z for Your V.
Other probiotic foods, such as kimchi, sauerkraut, and kefir (a fermented drink similar to yogurt) might also help your vagina maintain the right pH balance. “Probiotics are definitely helpful,” says Dr. Dweck.
