Vaginal health plays an important role in the physical, psychological and emotional well-being of a woman. It impacts one’s lifestyle and affects the quality of sexual
relationships with their partners. Thus, any weakness or issues related to the vagina can cause a great deal of physical as well as mental distress.
Basically, a healthy vagina contributes to the total well-being of a woman. Apart from healthy eating habits, an organized lifestyle, and proper intimate-hygiene habits, yoga can also boost the vaginal health of a woman.
