Soap vaginal question Baby_Majick 52 kids; Sullivan, Missouri 4031 posts

My mother in law disagree, she thinks it's gross to not use soap.... when she gives my girls a bath she thinks they need to use soap on their vaginal area. But I been told that all you need is just a wash cloth and water. So it irritates me that she makes them use soap on their vaginal area.... do your normally use soap or just water?!

Any soap or bubble bath would irritate my hoo ha when I was younger.



I don't think it's a big deal if they arent having a negative reaction to it.

I just use a wash cloth. I've always been told that soap is bad for the vagina.

Me too!! But my mother in law is old school... I don't have a smell down there, and I been just using water like I was told... hot water lol... anytime I tried soap it makes me get a yeast infection.

thats not so bad, she thinks they need to clean up in it... with soap and I totally disagree I even found a website... I hope she reads it... because I don't like making them use soap up in their vaginal areas.

Oh no thats to much and can cause infection. She should be respecting your wishes as their parent.



the only time i clean up in it with soap is during the heavy days of my period and after anal sex. I use the summers eve wash though and tons of rinsing.

That might be the case. But I've never had any issues, so I figure stick with what works lol.

Of course? Douching sucks for your vagina.
