As you explore the joys of shared intimacy, your body will adapt to your new status of womanhood.
The female body changes in many ways after marriage, and you will notice these changes in things like irregular periods, increased secretions and others. CAREFREE® is here to provide you with the essentials of daily freshness and the best intimate care routines for your changing body.
As you step into a new life after marriage, there are many things going on in your mind. You may notice that your body goes through some changes at this time. This is perfectly normal.
Physical Body Changes After Marriage
Engaging in physical intimacy leads to some changes in your hormones, which can affect your body. Your period cycle will not be affected, however, unless you become pregnant. You may experience a slight delay for a month or two, which is also completely normal, brought on by the stress of your first time.
You may also notice some changes in your breasts, as they might swell a little, and your skin may become flushed, especially just before intercourse. This sensation usually subsides and your body goes back to normal after intercourse.
Once you have become sexually active, your body can feel sexually excited. During this time, you may experience a feeling of ‘being wet’, as the vaginal walls stretch and self-lubricate to help make intercourse easier. You may experience some vaginal discharge during the day as well, and this is normal. A panty liner helps absorb the moisture and keeps you feeling fresh and clean.
Intimate Care Routines After Your Marriage
Keeping the vaginal area clean is imperative at this time. This not only keeps you feeling fresh, but is also important for avoiding infections and growth of bacteria.
Wash your intimate areas with a sensitive intimate wash, using your hands, to keep it clean. Wash only from the outside – the vaginal discharge is what keeps the vagina clean from the inside.
Choose a panty liner that suits your needs best, based on your discharge. There is a wide range to choose from, and you can even keep a couple of varieties for different days.
Keep in mind that if the discharge is accompanied by pain or irritation, or changes in colour and odour, then you need to consult a doctor.
