2) VAGINAL FART
What is Vaginal fart ?
First of all, Vaginal fart has nothing to do with the release of gas from the bowels through the bottom (anus) after the digestion process.
Vaginal fart is the passage or expulsion of gas or air through the vagina. This happens when air gets accumulated in the vagina. When air passes through vaginal canal, this sound is called as vaginal fart. This is odourless.
It is completely natural for any woman to go through this. Once in a lifetime every woman goes through this.
Note : Vaginal fart does not mean you are suffering through any disease, infection, etc.
3) SELF CLEANING OF VAGINA
The third and the most important fact about vagina is that vagina has a self cleaning property from inside which releases out as a form of white discharge.
When your white discharge is thick and clear or mucus like consistency that means you are extremely fertile during those days.
4) HYMEN MYTH
This is one of the biggest myth, especially in India, that every girl has hymen. No..!! It is extremely saddening that a girl’s virginity is judged with her hymen.
First of all, it is not neccessary that every girl is born with hymen. Also, hymen comes in different sizes like thin, thick etc. One cannot check someone’s hymen through finger test. Also, virginity has nothing to do with hymen.
6) THE FEELING TO PEE DURING SEX
This is mostly for the married woman. During intercourse the constant feeling to pee even after you have visited the loo. This is very common to happen during intercourse and it neccessarily does not mean you want to pee. This is perfectly normal.
7) UN-WELL VAGINA

8) LOST PROPERTY
HAHA..! As the tittle says , many woman are scared of things getting lost in the vagina like tampons, pads, menstrual cup, condom etc. cannot get lost inside the vagina.
As vagina ends at the cervix area. Hence, any substance to pass through the cervix should be of nano size. So, do not panic using tampons or menstrual cup. However, always read its precautionary measures.
9) DO NOT INSERT ANYTHING
READ ABOUT THIS FACT. Recently, i came across this news of a girl inserted a potato into her vagina because her Mom advised her this to avoid pregnancy. That resulted in heavy disaster for her.
I know this is shocking..
Ladies, the only way you can avoid pregnancy is but using condom ( the safest method so far ). Also, you can use pills ( not more than twice), copper T, etc. (By taking medical advise).
Do not insert any unwanted things inside the vagina. The ph of the vagina is very low.
10) WASHING THE VAGINA
Do not use Soap, shower gel, medicine, deodorants, perfumes etc to clean the vagina or for any pleasant smell. A clean and hygienic vagina will always have its particular clean smell. Do not use any chemicals as the pH level of the vagina is very low to handle such chemicals.
How to wash the vagina ?
As stated in Point 3, the vagina cleans itself properly. For outer cleaning, you can only splash some luke warm water to clean it. No chemical should go inside.
