The health of the female genital organ is an important part of a woman’s overall health. Its problems can affect your fertility, desire for copulation and ability to attain orgasm. Ongoing health issues concerning the female private part can also affect other areas of your life, causing stress or relationship problems and impacting your self-confidence.
What affects the Health of the Female Genital Organ? The female genital organ is a closed muscular canal that extends from the vulva (the outside of the female private part area), to the neck of the uterus (cervix). Various factors can affect your genital, some modifiable and some not. They include:
  • Unprotected sèx: You might contract a sexually transmitted infection if you have unprotected sèx [although the idea of ‘safe sèx’ is not as safe as it sounds].
  • Aggressive sèx or Pelvic Fracture: Forceful sèx or an injury to the pelvic area can result in vaginal trauma.
  • Certain Health Conditions: Diabetes and Sjogren’s syndrome (an autoimmune disorder) can cause dryness of the female genital organ.
  • Medications and Feminine-Hygiene Products: Prolonged use of antibiotics increases the risk of a vaginal yeast infection. Certain antihistamines can cause dryness of the female private-part. Superabsorbent tampons can lead to toxic shock syndrome (a rare, life-threatening complication of a bacterial infection).
  • Birth Control Products: Spermicide and NuvaRing (vaginal ring) can cause an irritation of the female genital organ. Using a diaphragm or contraceptive sponge might pose a risk of toxic shock syndrome.
  • Pregnancy and childbirth: If you become pregnant, you’ll stop menstruating until after your baby is born. During pregnancy, vaginal discharge often increases. Vaginal tears are relatively common during childbirth. In some cases, an episiotomy (an incision made in the tissue between the opening of the female private part and anus during childbirth) is needed. A vaginal delivery can also decrease muscle tone in the female genital organ.
  • Psychological Issues: Anxiety and depression can contribute to a low level of arousal and resulting discomfort or pain during copulation. Trauma (such as sèxual abuse or an initial painful sèxual experience), also can lead to pain associated with coitus.
  • Getting Older: The female genital organ loses elasticity after menopause (the end of menstruation and fertility).
  • Hormone Levels: Changes in your hormone levels can affect your private part. For example, estrogen production declines after menopause, after childbirth and during chest-feeding. Loss of estrogen can cause the vàginal lining to thin (vàginal atrophy), thereby making copulation painful.
