    Firstly, i hope you are aware of how to become Clean and in a state of purity after intercourse with your husband. The following is a passage from a website that i have found that can help you with the method:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Washing the hair when doing ghusl (full ablution) after having intercourse is obligatory. The evidence (daleel) for that is the hadeeth narrated by ‘Aa’ishah who said: “When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did ghusl after having intercourse, he would start by washing his hands, then he would pour water with his right hand onto his left hand and wash his private parts, then he would do wudoo’ as for prayer, then he would take the water and put his fingers in his hair till he reached the roots, and when he saw that the water had reached the roots, he would pour water over his head three times. Then he poured water over the rest of his body, then he washed his feet.” (Reported by Muslim, 474). Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said in his commentary on Buloogh al-Maraam (p. 399): “This also indicates that it is obligatory to make the water reach the roots of the hair when doing ghusl after intercourse, and if the hair is thick, one does this by putting one's fingers in one's hair and pouring water over one's head three times after the water has reached the roots of the hair.”

    To make sure that no discharge is left insight, you should throughly clean your private areas not from only outside areas but up to where just outside the vagina. This will hopefully inshallah make you clean. You have to make sure there is no disachrge coming out of your body. I hope this information has helped you alot.

    Sister A

    • To add to what Sister A said:

      Make sure you do not wash inside your privates as that can lead to sickness. Your body already knows how to clean the inside portion, so do not try to. Only do externally as Sister A stated.

  2. Assalamu alaikum,

    Yes, the body knows how to clean that inside portion, that's what the 'discharge' is all about, the vagina expelling the foreign substance, but it doesn't always come all the way out right away. I would suggest that with clean hands, you try to scoop as much of it out as you can then use the shower hose to wash this area out with water. Use water ONLY, soap in this area will throw off your pH balance and cause a bacterial or yeast infection. InshaAllah this helps!
