Want To Swim? How Can Women Prevent Inflammation During Swimming?

Swimming, as one of the popular aerobic sports, not only burns body fat, enhances and improves cardiorespiratory function, but also regulates psychological and mental state. However, whenever a woman wants to go swimming, a voice will tell you: "Don't go; be careful to get gynecological inflammation."


Is this correct? And if it's right, what can women do to prevent inflammation when swimming?

Swimming pools, rivers, and seas are public areas that contain a lot of impurities and germs, and the water quality is not clean, which can easily cause bacterial infections in women's private parts, so swimming is a period of susceptibility to gynecological inflammation. 

What kind of inflammation is it possible for women to get from swimming?

1. Vaginal Infection: Vaginal infections are a common form of gynecological inflammation, of which mycobacterial infections and bacterial vaginitis are the most common types. In swimming pools, the water may contain bacteria and viruses. Especially under poor hygiene conditions, these microorganisms may enter a woman's vagina and lead to infection. If a woman accidentally gets infected with vaginitis during swimming, she can choose to take the oral Fuyan Pill, which has a strong antiseptic ability and can help relieve and eliminate the inflammation.

2. Urinary Tract Infection: It is a bacterial infection in the urethra, which is the tube from the bladder to the outside of the body. When swimming pool water is not clean, bacteria can enter the urinary system through the urethra, leading to infection. Urinary tract infections often manifest in symptoms such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, and painful urination.

3. Urinary System Infection: This bacterial infection can involve the bladder, urethra, ureters, or kidneys. During swimming, women may find it difficult to avoid urinating, and if the pool is not clean at this time, the urinary system is also prone to infection. Urinary System infections often manifest as abdominal pain, frequent urination, urinary urgency, and painful urination. If a woman accidentally infects the urinary system during swimming, she is advised to take oral Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to relieve the symptoms of urinary discomfort as well as eliminate inflammation.

There is still some controversy about the relationship between swimming and gynecological infections. In fact, most swimming pools have strict water quality control measures and regular water testing to ensure that the water quality meets hygiene standards. As long as the water quality of swimming pools is guaranteed, the risk of gynecological infections is relatively low for women who swim moderately. However, low does not mean no, and the necessary precautions are still essential.

What can women do to prevent inflammation when swimming?

Choose a Swimming Place With Good Hygiene: You can choose swimming pools that can ensure the quality of the water in the pool meets hygiene standards. In qualified swimming places, the pool water is properly treated to ensure that the health of swimmers is not compromised.

Focus On Personal Hygiene: Make sure you wash your hands before and after swimming, as this reduces the chances of spreading germs and helps to protect your health and the health of others. It is also important to keep your intimate areas clean and dry to reduce the risk of developing problems such as urinary tract infections. Also, you should avoid urinating while in the pool, as this can lead to bacterial infections, which can be detrimental to vaginal health.

Control The Swimming Duration: prolonged water immersion may lead to an imbalance in the pH level in the vagina, which in turn increases the risk of infection. It is essential to control swimming duration and avoid over-exposure to water.

Choose The Right Bathing Suit: Breathable, comfortable bathing suits will keep your intimate areas dry and hygienic; suits that are too tight or loose are not suitable.

After swimming, it is recommended to use a professional weak acidic lotion close to the female vaginal environment to clean the private parts, which inhibits bacteria and regulates the acidic and alkaline internal environment to prevent gynecological inflammation effectively. In addition, women should be careful not to swim during menstruation, which may lead to reproductive system infection and cause discomfort or aggravation of menstrual discomfort, resulting in a prolonged menstrual period and increased menstrual flow.
