Hello ma'am.

Cleaning of his genital region with a mild soap and your external genitalia with at least water will be required.

Please also adviseyour partner to clean his hands with soap before you start your sexual act, and avoid wearing rings or any other ornaments in his fingers while he indulges in foreplay and introduces his fingers into your vagina.

Douching is another method that can be employed post sexual intercouse.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
