Bacterial Infection:

Bacterial infection is the spreading of a dangerous strain of bacteria on or within the body. Bacteria can infect any part of the body. Pneumonia, meningitis and food poisoning are only a few infections that can be caused by harmful bacteria.

Bacterial Vaginosis:

Bacterial vaginosis is a form of vaginal inflammation caused by the naturally occurring overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina that upsets the normal balance.

Cervix:

The cervix is a cylinder-shaped neck of tissue that connects the vagina to the uterus. Located at the lowest section of the uterus.

Cleanse:

Extract impurities by washing or thoroughly cleaning.

Cleansing Wash:

The term cleanser refers to a product that cleans or extract dirt or other substances.

Contamination:

Contamination is the presence of a constituent, impurity, or other undesirable element that spoils, corrupts, infects, impures, or makes a product inferior to use.

Douche:

The word “douche” means to shower or to soak. Douching is wiping or cleaning the interior of the vagina with water or other mixtures of fluids.

Endometritis:

Endometritis is an inflammatory disease of the lining of the uterus that is typically caused by infection. It’s not life-threatening, but it’s important to have it handled as soon as possible.

Estrogen:

A female steroid hormone that is produced by the ovaries and, in lesser amounts, by the adrenal cortex, placenta, and male testes.

Fungal Infection:

Fungal infections (also called mycoses) describe the invasion of tissues by one or more forms of fungi. These vary from superficial, isolated skin disorders to deeper tissue infections to severe lung, blood (septicaemia) or systemic diseases.

Inflammation:

A localized reaction that induces redness, warmth, swelling, and pain due to inflammation, irritation, or injury. Inflammation can be either external or internal.

Intimate Hygiene:

Generally, we all take care of our body, hair and face, just like we have to take a proper hygiene routine and taking care of the most sensitive part of your body i.e., Vagina. Maintaining hygiene in your intimate area is known as Intimate Hygiene.

Lactic Acid:

Lactic acid, or lactate, is a chemical by-product of anaerobic respiration—a mechanism by which cells generate energy without oxygen surrounding them.

Lactobacillus:

Lactobacillus is a type of bacterium. There are a number of lactobacillus species. They are “healthy” bacteria that usually reside in our digestive, urinary, and genital systems without causing disease.

Menopause:

Menopause is the point when a woman no longer has menstrual periods for at least 12 months. Menopause typically occurs in your late 40s to early 50s.

Menstruation:

Menstruation (also referred to as period or bleeding) is a mechanism in which a woman discharges blood (through the vagina) and other fluids from the lining of the uterus at roughly 28-day intervals. The transition takes place from puberty to menopause (the cessation of normal menstrual cycles), excluding throughout birth. This bleeding continues for about 3-5 days.

Mucus:

Mucus is a natural, slippery and stringy fluid material formed by many of the lining tissues in the body. It is necessary for the body to function and serve as a defensive and moisturizing layer to prevent vital organs from drying out.

Personal Care:

Personal hygiene is a general term used to refer to the promotion of personal grooming and toiletries, as well as to dressing and preserving your personal appearance.

pH:

pH, quantitative measure of the acidity or basicity of aqueous or other liquid solutions.

Sanitation:

Science and study on health and hygienic conditions; research and use of hygienic measures; is called sanitation.

Vagina:

The vagina is a muscular canal riddled with mucus and nerve membranes. It attaches the uterus and the cervix to the outside of the body, facilitating menstruation, intercourse and childbirth.

Vaginal Discharge:

A combination of vaginal fluid and cells that ranges from white and sticky to clear and watery, probably associated with odor.

Vaginal lubrication:

Fluid from the cervix and secretions from the Bartholin glands two pea sized glands at the entrance to the vagina help keep the vagina lubricated. During arousal, the Bartholin glands secrete extra fluid to reduce friction.

Vaginal yeast infection:

Vaginal yeast infection is a fungal infection that induces inflammation, discharge and extreme scratching of the vagina and vulva—the tissues at the opening of the vagina.

Also known as vaginal candidiasis, vaginal yeast infection affects up to 3 out of 4 people at some point in their lifespan.

Vulva:

The vulva is the area of skin that surrounds the urethra and vagina, including the clitoris and labia.

White Discharge:

A mix of vaginal fluid and cells that ranges from white and sticky to clear and watery, probably associated with odor. In vaginal infections often cause thick, white, clumpy vaginal discharge that usually doesn’t smell and also have a creamy, whitish coating in and around your vagina.

Yeast:

Yeasts are eukaryotic, single-celled microorganisms known as part of the kingdom of the fungi.
