So I just ended my period today. And usually, I wait at least a day after my period ends to have sex, because I have this dark stuff that like...if I had a tampon in it would come out on the tampon. So I wait usually to make sure thats all gone.
BUT tonight I have a date with my boyfriend and I want to have sex with him tonight.
My question is, aside from going out and buying like a douche or something, is there any way I can clean out the inside of my vag before tonight? Like something I can do at home?
And aside from a douche, there isn't a lot you can do to clean out the inside of your vagina. It is self-cleansing as it is, so even if you try, there might still be some old blood/blood clots up there that have not been released. If you have sex with your boyfriend, there might be some old blood clots regardless. He will understand if he is mature enough. You can still explain to him that you just ended your period...
Keep in mind that your vagina tends to be drier right after your period (the day or so after), which can cause friction during sex. If it is, then make sure to be completely "ready" down there, or even to use some lube, if needed. Anyway, I generally stay away from the soap (especially scented kind), and only use a feminine wash.

Jehmehh answered Friday July 25 2008, 5:15 pm: I would say you're safest and easiest bet is to just use good ole soap and water. Which you can use at any time, and is sometimes even better than douching. I'm not sure if it's the safest to douche the day your period ends (I could be wrong about that though) so I would suggest just taking a shower and cleaning it out with soap (pref. a bar of soap) and water. It sounds simple, but it works.
