Red Day Alert! Here is Why Your Red Day Feminine Wash Should Have Chlorhexidine Digluconate
Being on top of our career, social life, and relationships is always on every #GirlBoss’ daily routine. And as we traverse through life, it’s important to know how to protect ourselves — especially on our red days.
Menstruation may come with bacteria that can cause red day odor, itch, and irritation. And while most of these are normal, nobody likes the idea of other people being able to smell an unpleasant odor that comes with our red days. And for #GirlBosses, because every minute counts, irritation and red day bacteria may take a backseat throughout the day.
But how can we conquer our red days and the red day threats that come with them? It is vital we choose a feminine wash made specifically for red days and that’s where GynePro Ultra Protection feminine wash — and Chlorhexidine Digluconate — come in!
Chlorhexidine digluconate is the active ingredient found in GynePro which is specifically made to keep our feminine areas protected during red days. It’s an anti-infective agent that protects us against bacteria which may lead to various kinds of irritations. This active ingredient disrupts the build-up of the bacteria cell wall and is an effective way to combat yeasts and viruses, too! It’s able to suppress bacterial growth for up to 24 hours.
And while it is very tough on bacteria, it is clinically-tested to be safe for regular use!
With Chlorhexidine digluconate in GynePro, it’s no wonder GynePro is known to be trusted by doctors.

When it comes to hygiene for your feminine area, especially on your red days, GynePro has got you covered!
Vulva vs. Vagina
First thing’s first, if you didn’t already know the vulva and the vagina are two different parts of our bodies. The vagina is an inner muscular canal that connects the uterus to the outside world. It’s where we place our tampons and menstrual cups, if ever. The vulva, on the other hand, is made up of the parts of your feminine area that you see from the outside.
There’s a common misconception that you’re supposed to be douching your vagina, which is wrong. The vagina is a self-cleaning organ that knows how to take care of itself. So, no, you should NOT be douching your vagina. Doing so may only cause irritation and infections — but your vulva is another story.
Your vulva is the part of your feminine area that needs extra protection because it sits on the outside. The vulva is more susceptible to bacteria and irritation caused by sensitivity, especially on red days.
So, what happens to our vagina during red days?
Every month (assuming you are on a regular menstrual cycle), our uterus and vagina discharge unwanted bacteria, and all those are released through menstruation. The blood that we release is mostly made of dead cells, bacteria, an unfertilized egg, and parts of the endometrial lining. When this happens, our feminine area, specifically our vulva, becomes more exposed to all the unwanted bacteria, moisture, and can even be aggravated w/ friction from your napkin. This makes us most vulnerable to itch, odor, irritation.
This is why you need a feminine wash that is specifically designed for red days. GynePro Ultra Protection feminine wash is made with Chlorhexidine Digluconate which is an antiseptic to keep you protected especially on your red days. It’s clinically-tested to be 2X better in killing bacteria vs regular daily feminine wash brands.

Why practice good menstrual hygiene?
Practicing menstrual hygiene is a good way to keep your vulva healthy. Being constantly exposed to various bacteria may lead to irritation and if not addressed may worsen and lead to other concerns such as bacterial vaginosis, genital warts, or even the inflammation of the vagina. So before irritations appear or even get out of hand, take the first preventive measure and make sure to look after your feminine area, especially on red days.
Our red days don’t have to stop us or slow us down, we only need to know how to prepare for them and take action. So whether it’s being on top of your professional game, learning to work out even on your red days, or taking care of your feminine area, don’t be afraid to take the first step forward.
