Do your intimate mucous membranes itch, irritate or sting you? Do you suffer from a yeast infection that causes unbearable burning in your vulva and vagina? Do not recklessly apply anything and everything to cure your pain . It is essential and important for the comfort and health of your mucous membranes that you can take the time to understand the mechanism of your own intimacy and to provide it with what it needs.

Your intimate flora is mainly composed of lactobacilli and bacteria like fungi that line the vaginal and vulvar walls. These microorganisms can be “good” or “bad” for the body. If some of these bacteria proliferate significantly, they can cause infections and urogenital disorders . And it is very often an imbalance of the microbiota which is at the origin of these dysfunctions. And yes, balanced vaginal flora opposes the adhesion and colonization of pathogenic germs in the vagina and the proliferation of species naturally present in the minority. An imbalance of this flora increases the pH of the vagina and prevents the protective effect of the usual acidic pH . Depending on hormonal variations, your lifestyle, your diet, medication intake and your physical condition, your microbiota will constantly seek to stay regular to ensure the good health of your mucous membranes and avoid mycosis and vaginosis. or cystitis.

If all of this works well most of the time, your flora still has 1001 opportunities to disrupt your daily life and disrupt your sexuality : tobacco or alcohol, the alkaline power of semen, poorly done intimate hygiene or poor hygiene. does not suit you (too much or not enough), controversial period protection, a sexually transmitted infection, a poorly cleaned or exchanged sex toy, certain contraceptive pills, irritating underwear or cleaned with allergens, muscular intercourse without lubricant which has lasted a little too long, an allergic reaction to components: saliva, preservatives, perfume, a lubricant with too high a pH or osmolarity or ingredients that are not very clean, repeated friction or bikini waxing .

An unbalanced flora must face the appearance of fungi such as Candida albicans, and this is the start of problems: burning sensations, scratching, pain upon penetration. Intimate and sexual discomfort are enemies that should not be neglected.

A timely return to female sexuality seems timely to us. Your vulva is located externally and at the crossroads of three orifices: the urethra, the entrance to the vagina and the anus. The risks of infections and irritations, even if they prove to be benign, seem very high: itching, burning sensations, redness, swelling of the mucous membranes, etc. Irritations of the vulva can be a sign of a sexually transmitted infection but They are more generally due to vaginal dryness , lesions or a skin reaction to certain lubricants or intimate oils. There are many causes of these intimate discomforts that one day must be identified at all costs, but you will easily understand that it is impossible to list them all in a single article. What must be remembered from all these reservations made in a simple, very legitimate and understandable exercise of caution, is that vulvar discomfort is very common and is often temporary . So, don't be alarmed by the first rather significant sensation of discomfort or unusual discomfort. If this irritation does not cause abundant white discharge, it is not linked to a germ and is therefore not a symptom of mycosis. Conversely, if the problem persists, it may be vulvar pruritus , a dermatological condition, vulvar lichen or a sexually transmitted disease . In all cases, remain faithful to your strict principles that you impose on yourself for your health: constantly listen to your body and at the slightest doubt, consult your gynecologist who will, after physical assessment, take a mycobacteriological sample to identify the real cause. itching, and based on the results, suggest appropriate treatment.

The risk of vaginal infection seems to be the main cause of intimate discomfort and this is often due to an unbalanced vaginal flora . The question of oils, and in particular coconut oil as an intimate lubricant or miracle cure against mycoses, is still debated for several reasons including the effectiveness of its antifungal properties and its impact on the pH of the vaginal microbiota. Supposed African discoveries demonstrate the antifungal effectiveness of coconut oil on Candida albicans . The latter would therefore a priori be an ideal and natural solution to prevent vaginal yeast infections . Although there is no official study concerning its specific use on the vaginal and vulvar mucosa, it seems likely that certain oils, including coconut oil, do indeed have antifungal properties with the capacity to destroy Candida albicans, which is responsible for of most vaginal yeast infections. At first glance, this theory is therefore sound, but in practice, it is not so simple. According to the testimony of many doctors, the alleged antifungal properties of this coconut oil are not powerful enough to prevent vaginal yeast infections : additional research must therefore be carried out to determine whether this oil is safe and effective in this context. At best, coconut oil appears to have no effect in treating your yeast infection, which further prolongs your suffering. On the other hand, this same coconut oil will help relieve your vaginal dryness and irritation . To conclude, everything suggests that these alleged antifungal properties would not be powerful enough to prevent vaginal yeast infections. The question therefore remains unanswered. The bad news is that everything is eradicated with antifungal oils, the good bacteria - like the bad - are destroyed, like the antibiotics that we have become accustomed to taking when we are sick.

If you suffer from a gynecological disease , you absolutely must take a vaginal swab to first identify what type of germ is threatening you and then move on to appropriate specific treatment. Virgin vegetable oils used for so-called occasional use present no danger. But it is important to mention that vegetable oils (and coconut oil is one of them) have an alkaline pH (7-8) . The pH of a vegetable oil is therefore neutral while the vaginal pH is acidic and varies from 3.8 to 4.5. Is there a risk of causing an imbalance? By disrupting the functioning of the microbiota, the risk of future infection increases. There are a lot of products on the market that are not always good for your health. No study has demonstrated any risk of using vegetable oils on the health of your mucous membranes, so it is up to you alone to make the right choices. Find out in detail about the pH and the effects of intimate lubricants with our blog article: Which natural lubricant to use to preserve the acidity of the vagina and maintain the balance of the vaginal microbiota?
