Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If you are not planning pregnancy, after intercourse you can simply wipe with dry tissue paper or if you feel sticky wash with water and dry with a tissue paper. On a regular basis, frequent washing and the use of soap should be avoided, as it hampers natural bacteria. Once or twice in a day while bathing, cleaning is enough. Just use a tissue paper if you feel damp after urinating. Wear cotton underwear, and try changing them twice a day. Avoid any perfumes or talc over your perineum.
