Ladies, for a healthy, feel-good, orgasm-rich vagina, it starts with your diet. The diet allows your vagina to sensitive when it needs to be and be healthy inside and out for your and your partner. Here’s 15 foods you need to be eating:
1. Sweet Potatoes
Not only are sweet potatoes a delicious alternative to traditional potatoes, they are also incredibly #effective in the maintaining of good vaginal health.

You might not have to alter your eating habits much as most of the foods that help keep your vagina healthy you should be eating as part of a healthy balanced diet anyway.
Lemons also support vaginal health as their acidic nature helps maintain the vagina’s healthy pH level. Antioxidants in it also help protect the cells from free-radical damage.
In addition, it works as an immune booster to help your body prevent and fight any kind of infection.
Drink lemon water once or twice daily to help restore the pH balance in your body. To make lemon water, mix the juice of ½ lemon to a glass of warm water and add a little raw honey for taste.

Cranberry juice is great for improving your vaginal health. It helps balance the vagina’s pH level and its acidic property helps fight bacteria that cause UTIs, vaginal infections and other problems.
To reap the benefits, drink a glass of unsweetened, organic cranberry juice daily. Those who like the tart flavor can even eat a handful of cranberries daily. You can opt to take cranberry tablets, but consult your doctor first.

It contains live and active cultures (Lactobacillus bacteria) that prevent disease-causing organisms from attaching to the vagina and produce chemicals like lactic acid that inactivate or kill other infection-causing organisms. It also helps maintain healthy pH levels in the body.
According to a 2014 study published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics journal, lactobacilli help maintain normal urogenital health and play a key role in preventing bacterial vaginosis, yeast vaginitis, UTIs and sexually transmitted diseases.
