Vaginal Health Myths vs. Facts: A Guide for PCOS Women

Hey PCOS Sisters!

Let's talk about vaginal health and clear up some myths.

If you have PCOS, it’s important to know the facts. Here’s a simple guide to help you out.

Myth 1: You Need Special Products to Keep Your Vagina Clean

Fact: Your vagina cleans itself! You don’t need special soaps or sprays. Just wash the outside with warm water and mild, unscented soap.

Myth 2: PCOS Causes All Vaginal Issues

Fact: Not every vaginal problem is caused by PCOS. You can still get common infections like anyone else. Always check with your doctor to find out what’s really going on.

Myth 3: Tight Clothing Causes Infections

Fact: Tight clothes don’t cause infections but can create a warm, moist environment. Wear breathable fabrics, like cotton underwear, to stay comfortable.

Myth 4: You Shouldn’t Exercise During Your Period

Fact: Exercising during your period is fine and can help with cramps and mood. Do what feels good for you, whether it’s yoga, walking, or a full workout.

Myth 5: All Vaginal Discharge Is Bad

Fact: Discharge is normal and changes throughout your cycle. If it’s clear, white, or slightly yellow and doesn’t smell bad, it’s usually fine. If it changes a lot, see your doctor.


Knowing the facts about vaginal health can help you feel better and stay healthy. Trust your body, keep it simple, and don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor if you’re unsure about something.

Stay awesome!
