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.
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.
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 with pain or irritation, or changes in colour and odour, then you need to consult a doctor.
