    Your vagina is self-cleaning - you do not have to do anything to clean it internally. Most medical professionals will tell you that douching is not recommended or considered safe, as it can upset the balance of the vagina's natural bacteria and increase your chances of infection. You can read more about why it is not recommended at http://www.4woman.gov/faq/douching.htm

    You can wash the outside with soap and water the same way you do the rest of your body.

    This will not kill the sperm. In fact washing with water (douching) can actually increase the chance of the sperm getting into the cervix, which can lead to pregnancy.

    First, Im not a doctor, but I do for a fact know that you both wash and wipe front back to front (akward as that may seem) this is to prevent infections like yeast infections and UTIs

    Also, (as I said Im not a Dr.) I dont think youre supposed to insert your fingers (which can often times have bacteria/germs on them)- use a soft/thin cloth with a gentle cleanser or soap

    From front to back (meaning spread your labia[vaginal lips] apart and wiping from front to back), helps prevent Urinary tract infections. Also, you might try douching, although some Dr.s don't agree with this. I am not a Dr., but am a Registered Nurse.

    though im a male..but i think i know a little bout it..

    i think theres a cleanser that specifically cleans vaginal area..i think its sold in any shop/mall..

    u dont hav to stick ur finger in ur vagina..coz ur inside is safe from any bacterial infection due to the acidity of ur urine..sticking ur finger in it might give u something MORE than clean vagina.. :)
