A woman should not swim for four days before and after her period

Women's urethra is short, and the vagina is connected with the outside world, which provides a convenient door for bacterial infection. In the swimming pool, many people walk around with bare feet. If there is athlete's foot, they will stick to the ground and the edge of the pool. When someone sits on it, it is easy to cause fungal vaginitis. Therefore, swimming should be avoided for four days before and after the menstrual period.


Reminder: Women should not swim before and after menstruation

Life pressure also induces gynecological inflammation, and you cannot swim when there is inflammation


Modern women's life pressure, work stress, irregular work and rest time, decreased resistance and other reasons will induce gynecological inflammation, and the cervix just happens to have no nerve distribution, even if there is early inflammation, there is no discomfort, so many people won't notice. On the other hand, although the water in the swimming pool is cyclically disinfected, the water cannot be sterile. In some places, the disinfection is not complete, and there is no guarantee. Therefore, if the body has early gynecological inflammation such as increased secretions, abnormal taste and color sensation, or is in the period of inflammation treatment, absolutely cannot swim, otherwise it is easy to be infected by bacteria in the water, which will aggravate the disease.


Do not swim for four days before and after your period

At the same time, remember to avoid menstruation, it is best to swim after 3 days of menstruation. Strengthen self-protection during swimming. Even if there is no gynecological inflammation, and women who are not menstruating, you should always pay attention when swimming and strengthen your awareness of self-health protection.


Public facilities are also prone to gynecological infections, so be vigilant

The changing rooms of public swimming pools are usually relatively simple. Stools, toilets, and lockers are all public, so it is inevitable that they will be contaminated with bacteria. Therefore, when changing clothes, women should try not to let their skin directly touch the stool, and the changed clothes should be packed in clean bags, especially the underwear, which is best wrapped in the coat. Don't be careless while swimming. I often see a lot of girls sitting on the floor or table by the swimming pool. The floor by the pool is often stepped on by people with bare feet, and the mold on the feet is also on the ground. If you sit on it, it is easy to cause problems. Fungal vaginitis. Therefore, when you want to sit by the pool, you might as well put on a bath towel before sitting, and don't let your skin touch the ground directly.


Women's physiology determines their susceptibility to infection and cannot swim when symptoms of infection occur

Gynecological inflammation prohibits swimming From the physiological characteristics of women, the vagina of women is connected with the outside world, which provides the possibility for bacterial infection. Director Jia said that because women have such structural characteristics in physiology, they should pay more attention when swimming, otherwise it is easy to cause vaginal infection and inflammation. In fact, for women, in addition to skin diseases, eye diseases and other infectious diseases that are contraindicated in swimming, they cannot swim. If women are in the menstrual period or have gynecological inflammation, especially during treatment, they must not go into the water.


In addition, don't pause for too long at the deep water level: the water temperature at the deep water level is usually low, the water pressure is high, and human odor causes a series of stress responses, such as increased heartbeat, increased blood pressure, muscle contraction, nervousness, etc., which not only prevents fatigue , the competitiveness will also decline now, most of the bacteria will also take advantage of the "empty" to enter the vagina to cause vaginitis and other gynecological diseases, which will seriously affect women's future pregnancy and physical fitness. Therefore, when swimming, try not to stay in deep water for too long. Otherwise, there will be rough female endocrine disorders, amenorrhea, abdominal pain and other symptoms.

In addition, let's take a look at the precautions for swimming


1. Don't blow your nose when you choke on water, it is easy to cause otitis media

When swimming, it is easy for water to enter the ear. For people who have earwax or ear disease, the dirty water in the ear will soften the earwax and cause blockage, which is easy to cause otitis media. The water should be drained after swimming. In addition, when swimming, do not blow your nose hard, otherwise the Eustachian tube will expand, and the dirt will enter the middle ear through the Eustachian tube, causing otitis media.


2. After swimming, you should wash it carefully as soon as possible

After swimming, bathe with water as soon as possible to keep the skin and vulva clean. If you find discomfort, you should go to the hospital for examination and treatment in time. Germs are easy to remain on the skin, and swimming pools are often disinfected with chlorine preparations, which can easily irritate the skin. Therefore, it is best to take a serious bath with a nourishing body wash after swimming.


3. Don't forget to brush your teeth and rinse your mouth after swimming

When people swim, the pool water often enters the mouth, and some germs also follow. If you don't clean your mouth in time after swimming and then eat, these bacteria will enter the gastrointestinal tract.


4. Don’t forget sunscreen when swimming

If you choose an outdoor swimming pool, it is best to go after four o'clock in the afternoon to avoid the sun being too strong and sunburning your skin. It is recommended to protect the skin with a waterproof sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or higher. For guaranteed results, apply every half hour to 1 hour
