#IDoItTwiceAWeek with Betadine Feminine Wash

Once upon a time, there was a princess who wanted to feel forever clean and sexy. She climbed the highest mountains and sailed the stormy seas in search for that someone, or something. Soon enough, she found what she has been looking for… Who would have thought that her happy ending is a ‘magical’ bottle tucked inside a grocery store?

That princess is (guess who?) ME! 🙂 I would like to share with you how Betadine Feminine Wash turned my life around.

I already found my Prince Charming (my husband) before I met my bff, Betadine Feminine Wash. Looking back almost 6 years ago, my fairy godmother (my OB Gyne) prescribed Betadine Feminine Wash after I gave birth to my eldest son. She said it is for faster healing of my repaired cut, and for prevention of discomfort and infection down there.

In a nutshell, this magic bottle helped me get back the confidence I needed to recover from pregnancy and child birth. Now I’m one proud momma to two adorable boys, a preschooler and a toddler. 🙂

#IDoItTwiceAWeek

Like any other fairytales, I’ve had my fair share of challenges in the form of Urinary Tract Infection. I had several recurring UTI cases from grade school up to year 2009. The strange-smelling discharge from time to time is just too annoying (and depressing) to ignore. So after that fateful day that I met my bff, I never looked back. I experienced less itchiness, irritation, and odor, and you know what the best part is? With Betadine, along with some diet and lifestyle changes, I’m now UTI-free! 🙂

I use Betadine Feminine Wash TWICE A WEEK to maintain a healthy intimate hygiene. It protects me from feminine infections (kills bacteria, fungi, and protozoa), gives me relief from symptoms such as itching, discomfort, odour, and increased discharge, and restores the natural flora of my intimate area.

There are 2 simple steps on how to use it:

  1. Pour 2-3 small drops of Povidone Iodine 7.5% Antiseptic Feminine Wash.
  2. Wash on the external vaginal area for 15 seconds before rinsing thoroughly.

Repeat this once or twice a week, in the morning and in the evening.

Betadine Feminine Wash How To Use
Betadine Feminine Wash I Do It Twice A Week

The active ingredient in BETADINE® Feminine Care, povidone-iodine, has proven to be effective against a wide spectrum of micro-organisms that cause vaginal infections. The eradication of a specific micro-organism may result in a gap in the make-up of the flora that may then be replaced by harmful surviving or dormant micro-organisms. Because it does not target just one type of micro-organism, BETADINE® Feminine Care cleanses off the bad germs and allows the normal vaginal flora (good bacteria) to return.

However, I use it daily during red days. I’m most vulnerable (physically and emotionally) every time I’m having a period but with Betadine, I feel no discomfort at all. I swear by its effectiveness because I’ve been using and trusting the brand for years.

My mom is a believer too! While we were grocery shopping, she told me, “Ubos na betadine fem wash ko. Kuha tayo.” Mothers really know best!

Clean is the New Sexy

Motherhood is a wonderful journey but it comes with great challenges. When I became a mother for the first time, I couldn’t help but hesitate about my nurturing and parenting capabilities. I was a worry wart most of the time, asking myself every now and then, “Am I actually a good mother to my child?”

Aside from experiencing parenting setbacks, I’ve come to accept that sooner or later the mirror will show me an image of an unattractive MOM BOD. Stretchmarks? Yes, a lot. Love handles? Check. Belly pouch? Absolutely. Saggy breasts? Yikes. There goes my confidence.. down the drain.

That’s why as a mother who’s ageing turning 30 next year, I need an extra confidence boost — that extra dose of mixed elation, inner peace, and contentment. Well, I may not have a face that could launch a thousand ships or a 34-24-36 drop dead gorgeous body, but I’m happy to be C-L-E-A-N. Clean is sexy too, right?

So aside from using Betadine Feminine Wash 2x a week, here are the other activities I do twice a week to feel clean and sexy 24/7!

Clean & Green. I am now starting my own herb garden, eating more organic food, and preparing healthy meals & fruit/veggie juices for my family.

Clean as I go. Our place may be small but I always see to it that it’s kept clean and tidy at all times. I also de-clutter twice a week so our stuff won’t pile up.

Clean on the Outside. I always keep my nails (with or without nail polish) and my hair clean, and I exfoliate my skin using my own body scrub concoction.

Fab, Fit, and Sexy. Diet and exercise go hand in hand. I follow a few home workouts I got from Pinterest or go to the gym whenever I have spare time. My goal is to exercise at least 3 times a week.

Smart is Sexy. Reading is my passion so I try to cozy up with my books/ebooks right after I put my little boys to bed. I also get to study online for free with the help of educational websites offering short courses, such as Coursera and Udemy.

Nurturing Passions. Cooking, playing video games, reading novels, doing DIY projects, making bento meals, having quality time with my kids, and watching movies with my husband.

Meditation & Spiritual Cleansing. Personal reflection, teaching my kids stories from the Bible, and attending bible meetings with my family.

Clean & Healthy Relationships. I get to keep in touch with my family & close friends more often, thanks to modern gadgets and social media.

Relationship Goal: 2x a Week. Yes, I want to date my husband twice a week! (What were you thinking?!) We usually go out twice or thrice a month. Last month it was down to one. Boo.

Now about the other thing….. 🙂 Nah! Let’s just finish this post wishing you all your own Happily Ever After. *wink wink*

    I haven’t tried Betadine but it’s helpful to know the uses and benefits of using it 2 a week.

    I also used this post partum. I wonder how much this differs with the blue one. Well, the blue one is actually more for the generic skin and that’s what I use these days.

      There’s a blue variant? I haven’t noticed any yet in the grocery.

    Love your write-up! I got turned off by the most popular feminine wash brands because of the strong fragrance. Hoping Betadine is fragrance-free!

      It has this medicated scent, but it doesn’t leave any in the intimate area 🙂
