#1- Have Annual Pelvic Examinations.
A woman’s first pelvic examination should occur prior to turning 21 or when she becomes sexually active. A gynecological examination is quick, painless and only takes a few moments.

#2- Eat Healthy Foods.
A nutrient-dense diet that features organic fruits and vegetables, wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef, free-range poultry and cultured dairy can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. If you take birth control pills or are prone to yeast infections, following a candida diet may help reduce candida symptoms.
There is now evidence that birth control pills can spur yeast infections in some women, and it has been recognized for many years that taking antibiotics can also cause yeast infections.

The body, including the gut and the vagina, need healthy bacteria to function optimally.

Variety is the spice of life and varying your exercise routine can help you stay motivated while working a variety of muscle groups. In addition to your normal workout regimen of walking, running or strength training, try to incorporate some of the following aerobic activities into your routine:
Swimming: A great, all-around low-impact conditioning exercise, swimming benefits the mind, lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk for heart disease and is great for whole body toning.
Tennis: Few exercises provide as complete a workout as a good round of tennis. Tennis is great for lowering body fat and blood pressure, but it is also fantastic for improving endurance, flexibility, strength and balance. And, a little healthy competition between friends on the court can keep you working out while enjoying time socializing.
Dancing: Much like tennis, depending on the type of dance you engage in, you can work virtually every muscle in your body. In fact, dancing can improve muscle strength and tone, reduce your risk for osteoporosis, improve balance and agility, help you lose weight and improve heart and lung health.
Dancing is also a social activity, and another way to keep your exercise routine from getting boring. From ballet and tap dancing to hip hop and belly dancing, you can find a fun and aerobically challenging activity to help you reach your recommended exercise quota.
