Post-op hygiene

Okay Princesses...I don't know how to word this tactfully...are there guidelines for vaginal hygiene after surgery? When you say "NOTHING" in there for 6 weeks, how does one keep it clean???

You are permitted to wash gently as you shower. That should keep you pretty clean........

I meant externally only - no more than the labia.

Hi Simi,

Yes, gentle external washing only. I take a plastic cup in the shower with me to completely rinse the "land down under."

I wash in the shower, but then if "go"I use baby wipes- if it's ok for the little people, I figure it's ok for me!
