It is advisable to always ease yourself in a toilet that is neat. Always clean your toilets at home as this helps to prevent bacteria from multiplying in the toilet which can lead to infections. If you must use public toilets to ease yourself, be mindful of the one you use and avoid close contact with the toilet seats.
2. STOP VAGINAL DOUCHING
Stop the use of medicated soaps, salt and other substances to clean the vagina. If you use these things to clean the vagina, it takes away some good bacteria that helps to protect the vagina and this can lead to a high risk of toilet infection. While bathing, only use water to wash the vagina.
