The care for the female genitalia in the sexual practice and due to aesthetic reasons is subject of interest of all women. However, the form, frequency and occasion to make it properly are not clear, both for health workers, and women themselves, and require largest scientific foundations. It is necessary, therefore, to accumulate information about the practices toward the attention of female genitalia, since this information is not available in national or international literature. Objective: to Evaluate the daily practices of care of the female genitalia in University women. Subject and methods: Descriptive analytic study.
