Why You Should Always Focus on your Sexual Health

Updated: Sep 14, 2018

This is a very sensitive subject at the forefront of everyone’s mind, but this week is Sexual Health Week and everyone is looking for answers and holistic treatments. It is important to state that you should always consult your doctor if you experience symptoms such as excessive itching, swellings, bumps or blisters appearing, unusual discharge or blood. These are common symptoms of some very serious STIs that need medical attention. You should also listen to your body and regularly check for any changes to your delicate yoni tissue. EmpressBody has taken the time to answer some questions about sexual health and offer some holistic remedies to the more minor ones.

What exactly is an STI or an STD?

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are infections that are passed on through unprotected sex (not using a condom) or genital contact. Some STIs include:

- Chlamydia

- Genital Warts

- Genital Herpes

- Gonorrhea


- Pubic Lice

- Syphilis

When Should I Go to a Sexual Health Clinic?

For women the symptoms you should always look out for are:

- Yellow or green discharge from your vagina or unusual smelling discharge

- Bleeding during intercourse

- Pain during intercourse

- Pain in your lower abdomen

- Pain when passing urine

- Itching, burning or tingling on your yoni

- Blisters, sores or lumps around your yoni

- Black powder or tiny white dots in your underwear (this could be the droppings or eggs of pubic lice)

Men should consult their doctor if they experience:

- Discharge from the penis

- Pain in the testicles

- Pain when passing urine

- Itching, burning or tingling on the penis

- Blisters, sores or lumps around the penis

- Black powder or tiny white dots in your underwear (this could be the droppings or eggs of pubic lice)

It is also important to note that not everyone will experience the same STI symptoms, and some may not experience any. You should make the effort to get checked if:

- you have had unprotected sex with a new partner

- You or your sexual partner have had sex with someone else without using a condom

- Your sexual partner has any symptoms

- You're planning to get pregnant and may have been at risk of infection

You should aim to get have an STI check and test for HIV every year as for many STIs the quicker you catch them (if you have no symptoms) the less damage they can do.

EmpressBody’s Number 1 Sexual Health Tip: Always Wear a Condom!

One of the simplest ways to prevent STIs is to use a condom when engaging in intercourse. It acts as a barrier between both sets of genitals preventing the spreading and contact with STIs. They are also extremely effective in preventing pregnancy.

And … Always Pee after Sex

By urinating both before and after and sex, the urine stream instantly mechanically cleanses and flushes the bacteria that could enter the urethra, which is where you urinate from preventing UTIs.

How can EmpressBody help?

Whilst none of our products can help with an STI (you should always consult a doctor for STI treatment), we can help you if you get a yeast infection. A yeast infection is not considered an STI, because you can get a yeast infection without having sex. But you can get a yeast infection from your sexual partner. Condoms and dental dams may help prevent getting or passing yeast infections through vaginal, oral, or anal sex.
