OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry is our expert when it comes to women's sexual health and we're taking a look at some of her best tips, advice, and suggestions for a healthy and happy vagina.
She shares there are some surprising foods that may help to improve vaginal health, which include:
- Apples: She says, "Apparently an apple a day might keep your gyno away." She explains that a study has found that eating an apple a day can help with dryness. She notes that while the study was small and some people who eat an apple daily might not find they are less dry, but she notes that eating an apple a day can't hurt.
- Salmon: Our resident OB/GYN explains the popular fish can help to fight inflammation and menstrual cramps and in some women, it can help to fend off endometriosis.
- Tofu: Dr. Nita says eating tofu can help improve your pelvic floor, as it's high in Vitamin D, and a lack of the vitamin can be associated with a weaker pelvic floor.
Speaking of eating healthy, hear what Dr. Nita says about the “panty challenge” and its claims that changing what you eat and drink can eliminate one's discharge.
